Evangelicals took the schools to court. They lost.
Making children learn prayers of another faith is wrong. If the teacher wanted to show them the prayers and the koran in an effort to make for better relations, that would be fine. But I think it was taken too far.

Learning prayers of "another faith" - what are you saying here? THat kids shouldn't be taught prayers other than Christian ones? Or evangelical ones? We shouldn't be teaching anyone to say any prayers, according to our Constitution. But if prayers are taught, why is it wrong to teach children about how other religions pray?

Now, what do you think would have happened if the teacher decided to teach the Muslims in the class how it is to be Christian and made them memorize Bible scriptures and say the Lord's Prayer? Maybe they should eat pork too! Gotta make sure they know what it's like to be a Christian!
