Prayer is back in the classroom just in time for first day of school

School prayer will be allowed in Illinois’ public schools. Governor Bruce Rauner signed a bill last month allowing the practice. The Silent Reflection and Student Prayer Act lets public school students decide if they want to engage in prayer — individually or collectively — during times when they’re not in class. State Representative Mary Flowers introduced House Bill 165 and she joins to share details of the law. (Flickr/Cassidy Lancaster)
