School Prayer by Mind Map: School Prayer

1. Social Roles: Teachers are not allowed to enforce mandatory school prayers on students. Same goes for the parents, they cant tell their children to make others pray.

1.1. students of all faiths are actually free to pray alone or in groups during the school day, as long as they don’t disrupt the school or interfere with the rights of others. Of course, the right to engage in voluntary prayer or religious discussion does not necessarily include the right to preach to a captive audience, like an assembly, or to compel other students to participate.

2. cultural beliefs and biases: the right to engage in voluntary prayer does not include, for example, the right to have a captive audience listen or to compel other students to participate.

2.1. cultural beliefs and biases: Act of freedom of speech and freedom of religion

3. social inequalities: increasing drug use, alcoholism, teen pregnancy, and HIV transmission. School prayer can help combat these issues, would instill a sense of morality and is desperately needed to protect our children.

3.1. School prayer would address the needs of the whole person. Schools must do more than train children’s minds academically. They must also nurture their souls and reinforce the values taught at home and in the community.

4. existing social conditions: It tells students that they are more than just a collection of chemicals and energy that happen to be occupying space and time.

4.1. Once acknowledgement of God’s existence is removed, there is no absolute basis for morals, and a free society drifts toward anarchy.
