"Andrew Schneider, director of the ACLU of Connecticut, said, "This is an important case because it bears on the proper relationship between religion and government.

"It funnels public money to a particular house of worship, and it forces students of many different faiths to attend a graduation ceremony that reflects one specific faith," Schneider said."
