Who took prayer out of school?
Asked in The Bible, History of the United States
Why is prayer in school such a big deal?
It means that the school is a Christian school, and that prayer is part of the curriculum of the school. In point of fact it is the most important of all the teachings of the school. Whatever else you learn in school it will not get you to heaven, prayer on the other hand will certainly help you along the way.

When was prayer taken out of school?
In 1963, Madalyn Murray O'Hair won a lawsuit against the Baltimore School System, which voted in her favor 8-1 to ban school prayer and label it "unconstitutional". Though not all prayer was immediately banned from schools at that time, through a process of time, almost all school prayer is banned today.

Why is prayer not allowed in some schools?
It is most likely that the headmaster of some schools considers that time spent in prayer would be better spent in learning something. A school is a school not a church. There used to be prayer in school, but then this whole "Politically Correct" thing came along and now you can't pray in school because you might offend someone else ofa different religion. plus the school could get sued for teaching children of a different religion about Christianity and prayer.

Asked in Bill of Rights
Does The Bill of Rights explicitly prohibit prayer in public schools?
No. Nothing in the Constitution prohibits prayer in any location. The Bill of Rights just states that people have the right of religion without the state interfering. The idea that schools don't allow prayer is bunk. A student can pray if they wish and can have a religious club on campus, but the school can't do a morning prayer over the intercom system. The problem is whose prayer would they do? If we are to respect all and allow all their religion then school having a morning prayer would be against the constitution and others rights. Someone out of the many hundreds of students in a school would have their rights "stepped on" with a prayer done by the school.

Asked in Criminal Law
Why is prayer in school illegal?
Prayer in schools is not illegal (in the United States, at least). It's normally considered illegal (specifically, a First Amendment violation) for a public school to require prayer or for formal prayers to be lead by a teacher or school official, but it's not illegal for an individual student to pray, or not, as they choose (and it's at least arguable that prohibiting prayer entirely would also be a First Amendment violation).
