A very controversial widespread issue today is the right to have prayer in public schools. The proposed amendment reads: 'To secure the people's right to acknowledge God according to the dictates of conscience. The people's rights to pray and to recognize their belief, heritage or traditions on public property, shall not be infringed. The government shall not require any person to join in the prayer or religious activity, initiate or designate s, discriminate against any religion, or deny equal access to benefit on account of religion.

No one can stop them from praying individually, silently, or personally. this right has never, and could never be outlawed. (AVSP ) The real motive is to install group prayer.(The Case Against ) I feel that the school day is not that long, and that if one feels obligated to express their beliefs in a group, there is plenty of time after school. There are so many things that ...
