This article presents information on issues related to the proposal given by U.S. President to amend the constitution to permit organized prayer in public schools. The notion that the Federal Government doesn't have the power to forbid prayer in public schools does not mean that such prayer is necessarily desirable. It is opined that the preferred approach should be to encourage private education, through which parents could support religious education, sex education, and anything else they deem appropriate for their children.
