If this is in a public high school, I see a HUGE problem.  There is supposed to be a separation of church and state, and most towns cannot even display the 10 commandments, a nativity scene, or even have Christmas caroles in the winter concerts.  To dedicate a classroom for prayer in a public school is a slap in the face of the rules...for any religion.

No, I don't have a problem with prayer in school as long as it's student led and not mandatory.

I have a problem with ANY prayer being sanctioned in a public school.  The school (taypayers) are paying for this.

I would never tell any child tbey are forbidden to pray because of the building they're in. I don't care what religion it is.

Honestly I don't see an issue with a prayer room as long as it includes anyone who wants to pray to their higher power. If it is only for students of one faith, that is where I would have a concern. The article wasn't very clear on that topic.

I don't have a problem with it. No one is required to attend.

If it is student led then it breaks no laws.
