Prayer in the Public Schools The Seattle Public Schools are forming a committee to examine prayer in school, particularly to "support the needs of our diverse students and families." But the committee is not organizing to examine the full diversity of the student body, only the needs of Muslim students: Committee will propose guidelines for issue of prayer The SPS Department of Race and Equity is looking for SEA members to participate in a "Prayer in Schools Committee," the charge of which is to look at how to address this issue District wide and to provide information about our Muslim students that will help teachers and building leaders make decisions that support the needs of our diverse students and families. The next meeting is scheduled for May 30th, 3:00 - 4:30.
