instead of prayer, why not learn about other religions? I mean it is school, kids are hypothetically supposed to learn things in school. So, why not substitute prayer time with, learn a different religion time? That way school can be educational and potentially spiritual at the same time.
I really like this idea. Try getting the folks in Alabama to go for it though. We couldnt even learn about Evolution without having a darn tag in the book saying that it is "just a thoery...blah blah blah..."
