People encourage their children to offer their prayers while in school children are not able to offer their prayer so it should be allowed as we are strictly told by our god to offer our prayer.


Thank you for making this topic.

I'm debating that public prayer should not be allowed in schools.

This first round I will simply be showing that I have accepted this debate-no argument

Please do not forfeit in the middle of the debate, for that has happened with the last three debates I accepted.

Also, if they only permit silent prayer, doesn"t that still deny the Right of Free Speech?

Prayer is allowed, but not public prayer, federal law required schools to permit only voluntary, silent, and non-disruptive prayer. Praying in school is not against the law. In fact, the U.S. Constitution guarantees students the right to pray in public schools; it is a protected form of free speech. A student can pray on the school bus, in the corridors, in the cafeteria, in their student-run Bible club, at the flagpole, sports stadium, and elsewhere on school grounds. They can even pray silently before and after class in the classroom.
"School sponsorship of a religious message is impermissible because it sends the ancillary message to members of the audience who are non-adherents that they are outsiders, not full members of the political community, and an accompanying message to adherents that they are insiders, favored members of the political community. U.S. Supreme Court decision, Santa Fe Independent School District v. Doe, 2000-JUN-19. 1
