Agree or Disagree? Trump did a great thing for America when he enforced the 1st amendment rights to religious expression in?
American Public Schools. Now Public School Students can pray on school grounds

I would be more impressed if evangelical families had daily devotions and pray together, which only 8% of them do, if 95% did that would be impressive. If Trump really cared about 1st amendment rights he wouldn't divide the country up over kneeling during the national anthem.

Trump doesn't support the first amendment. If he did, he'd stop crying over nfl athletes exercising their first amendment rights. Also what you mentioned is called establishment which is unconstitutional

As all the intelligent answers point out, the only ban was on school-organized prayer in a public school. How would the good Christians like it if the school required organized prayer to Allah, Satan, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster? When Regan signed the bill, he commented that, as long as there were exams, there would be prayer in all schools.

disagree ... freedom of religion includes the absence of it
I don't care who, what, where people legally worship ... keep it out of politics. Separate church and state as many founding fathers wanted.
Have more lives been lost or souls saved in the name of religion? History has recorded countless deaths ... souls saved is faith based.

I don't think it's a "great" thing, but I do think it's wrong to tell Catholic kids to wipe the ashes off their forehead or Muslim children not to wear conservative clothing or do their daily prayers.
School shouldn't sponsor prayer, but it shouldn't impede kids who want to pray and should accommodate those kids within reason, in my opinion.

Disagree. Public school students have /always/ been allowed to pray on school grounds. The only prayer that is not allowed is teacher or school led prayer. Students are always allowed to pray by themselves or in groups of individuals of like faith, just not directed by teachers or school officials.
This 'enforcement' is nothing more than election year grandstanding.

They always could pray on school grounds, nothing has changed, Trump did nothing.
What was the law, and still is, is that the schools themselves can not organize or force participation in any religious acts.

They always could pray on school grounds. The school can't lead the prayers or require them - but, if a group of students want to pray - they can.
This is just a political PR stunt.
