Ala. Students Fight to Resume Prayer in School

Ad Feedback

A group of Alabama students is fighting to have their school resume prayer and Bible reading over its public address system.

Calhoun County School Superintendent Judy Stiefel had ordered the prayer and Bible reading cancelled after one student complained.

The student said he demanded it stop in a voicemail sent to Stiefel. He also contacted the American Civil Liberties Union to complain about the issue.

In response, Stiefel sent an e-mail to every school in the system in which she "reminded them of the law."

About a dozen Alexandria High School students in Alabama appealed that decision.

The students will be allowed to give their opinions this week at a school board meeting. But the superintendent said she will not back down because school prayer violates U.S. Supreme Court rulings.
