In 1995, U.S. Secretary of Education Richard W. Riley, who served under President Bill Clinton, developed some guidelines regarding religious expression in public schools. These would include the celebration of holidays. Mr. Riley recommended that while
“schools may not observe holidays as religious events or promote such observance by students,”
“Teachers and administrators also are prohibited from discouraging activity because of its religious content, and from soliciting or encouraging antireligious activity.”
