  •  Wait, what? (0+ / 0-)

    The long blockquote at the bottom makes it very clear that they are not banning prayer at all.

    I don't understand the title.

    •  Coach-led prayer (0+ / 0-)

      If students want to pray before or after, even if they choose to form a group to pray, they still have that constitutional right, and the ACLU knows not to try to block such actions.

      However, the practice of prayers in the presence of the coach, even if the coach is not leading it, which strongly suggests school-endorsement of religion, is banned, and I think that is what the school is clarifying.
