The failure rate of common sense is exponentially proportional to the complexity of the issue.
Freedom of Religion is not a 100%, across the board restriction on Congress. Courts have frequently upheld the Constitutionality of restricting the expression of religion in public institutions (government, courts, schools, etc.).
If you want to go to the intent of a founding father, read the words of my hero Thomas Jefferson, a zealous advocate of public schools and religious freedom, and an equally zealous advocate of keeping religion far removed from public schools and the government at large.
Anyway, restricting public school teachers in no way infringes on their rights. Those teachers can teach at private religious schools. Similarly, you can send your children to private religious schools.
