Should prayer be allowed in school?
The great debate.
Why prayer should not be in school.
Also it would be a terrible burden on the school,teaching and monitoring. That is not the purpose of public schools.
It would not be fair mostly because most advocating for prayer in schools are advocating christians.
public schools exist to educate, not to proselytize, children in a public school are a captive.
so it is appropriate that the two should not mix. To introduce religion in our public schools builds walls between children who may not have been aware of religious differences before.
Why prayer should be in school.
The declaration say's "We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by god.
Morals must be taught, and they cannot be taught properly without religion, there cannot be moral laws without a moral law giver.
Public schools had prayer in them 200 years before the supreme court ruled that state mandated class prayers were unconstitutional.
