Public schools are created for all children, whether they be Jewish, Catholic, Buddhist, Islamic etcetera. This therefore entails that a public location whose sole purpose is to educate, and is in turn paid for with tax payer money distributed by the Government, has no place to instill beliefs and tread upon the sacred duty of parents to educate their children in terms of Religious observations. In previous decades when Religion has invaded our schools it has singled out the Jewish child, the child from an agnostic family and especially the atheist. This further creates segregation and discrimination in public school settings along with tainting the mind that one is inferior if they do not adhere to the "majority" in a district, leading to an even further reason to persecute one individual.
We should not forget the Supreme Court cases of Ed Schempp, Ishmael Jaffree and Vashti McCollum. We should also not forget that silent, individual prayer has never been outlawed in schools, merely the Governments interpretation of what the majority should learn has.
I think that people should be able to pray in schools and all they want cuz it is not hurting anyone if they say a pray or two. If they want to pray let them if they dont then thay do not have to can say thank you to teachers and other students but why cant we say thank you to God. That is crazy If someone sees that someone is having a bad day at school they should be able to say a pray for them if they want to. Some parents teachs there kids to say a prayer over there food and all, sp at school they should be able to do that if they want. If the kid does not want to pray then they do not have are taking God away we need to bring him back in the lives of everyone. We say the Pledge of Allegiance so why cant we pray if we want to. They say that the fathers of our nations was governed by God and they prayed, so why cant we. I think that we should be able to pray at school and where ever we are and when ever we want.
