ACLU went too far attacking religious freedom and being reigned back in thank goodness.

Faculty and teachers can once again pray at school during their break times, pray during school events in a nonofficial capacity, attend and fully participate in baccalaureate services, have a Bible on their desk, wear religious jewelry, and assign readings from the Bible to students when relevant to nonreligious academic assignments. Students will be allowed to voluntarily pray, submit religious answers in homework, and freely participate in private, after-school religious programs.

I agree with all of the above as long as teachers and staff do not teach religion or ask/require others to participate in thier religious activities in an official capacity. Religion should not be taught in schools unless in the context of history or comparitive religious studies. Teachers should also not use their position to recruit new believers. What teachers to on breaks/lunch etc is of no consequence, neither is religious jewelry or religions books on/in their desks/office. Students should be able to do as they please (pray, answers, after-school programs, etc...)

What happens when a teacher wants to keep a Koran on her desk, rolls out a prayer rug in the teachers' lounge, and assigns students a Sura "when appropriate"? I am guessing you and your buddies will immediately have several litters of kittens. LOL!

Why do they need to practice? Shouldn't they perfect at religion by now? grin
