Stop Forcing Buddhist Meditation on Kids in School

It’s disturbing to the core.

Young elementary school students are being forced to participate in Buddhist-based meditation in public schools.

We’re being contacted by numerous parents of elementary school students from over a dozen states. Some students are required to participate in as many as three meditation sessions each school day. If they refuse, kids are forced to sit outside the classroom, like a punishment.

The schools are using curriculums including but not limited to Inner Explorer, Mind Up, and Dialectic Behavior Therapy. An audio is played telling young students: “We’re all connected through nature. And we’re all connected through the universe.” It tells them how to clear their minds, watch their memories and emotions float away on clouds, and connect with the universe.

Indoctrinating young kids in public schools with Buddhist meditation is outright unconstitutional.

We're launching a multifaceted legal campaign including representing parents of these students, sending demand letters, state FOIA requests, and if necessary, litigation. Take action with us.

By Jay Sekulow1545337341824
