You think prayer should be allowed in school? Why or why not?

If the school is affiliated to any religion, then prayer in schools is fine. But I think that if a person chooses to send their child to what is termed in English as a State school, with no religious connections then the children should not have to pray.

I believe that children should be allowed to pray if they wish you. In the schools here, they have a moment of silence. No one is forcing them to pray, but if they choose to, they can.

Well, prayer is kind of more a religious thing and school's for an education, not religion. With all the different religions out there, I don't think prayer should be allowed in school. Keep it at home and church. I hate when people force religion on me.

No, I dont think it should be. For one, not everyone is the same religion and 2, if parents dont grow their children up with a religious background, its somewhat forcing a religion on a child and not letting them choose. Being religious or not is just fine, but I think that one should choose.

I do not believe that people should be allowed to push their religion on anyone but I do believe that prayer should be allowed in school for those who would like to. I think this is a free country and we should not have to worry about what religion we belong to or believe ina nd if it offends someone else.
