Response: There is absolutely no way that students can be stopped from praying whenever they want to at public schools regardless of any ban or any demand from administrators, teachers, or judges .

If administrators ruled against verbal prayers students could still link their hands and bow together in silent prayer. If bowing together was outlawed then students could individually still close their eyes and pray anytime regardless. If bowing one’s head in silent prayer was banned, students could still close their eyes and pray. If students were not allowed to close their eyes together, they could still look straight ahead and silently pray.

There is no way that prayer can really be stopped regardless of any official statement or ruling.                  *Top
