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.
