The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution prohibits Congress from making any law "prohibiting the free exercise" of religion, and the Fourteenth Amendment applies this restriction to the States. Per the U.S. Department of Education guidelines on "Constitutionally Protected Prayer" in public schools, "Students may express their beliefs about religion in homework, artwork, and other written and oral assignments free from discrimination based on the religious content of their submissions."
