Can High School Students Pray Instead Of Going To Class?

The question of what limits there are on student-initiated prayer in schools has surfaced in Lumpkin County, Georgia.  According to Fox5 News, last Wednesday a student member of Lumpkin County High School's Fellowship of Christian Athletes showed up at the coach's office at 7:30 am and began to pray with the coach.  The prayer lasted over two hours, and before it was finished some 50 students had joined in the prayer that extended into first period when they should have been in class.  Lumpkin County Schools Superintendent Dewey Moye says that the students were within their right, but that from now on there will be no prayers during school hours. According to Opposing Views, the ACLU is investigating the incident.
