What about a time in the day for people to pray? That wouldn't discriminate against anyone including people who are religious. Although, in the US I suppose if religion is a big deal in a family the kids go to private schools.
I don't think prayer in school would solve the shootings/violence etc issues, but seperation of church in state as perfected in north american systems seems a bit of a contrast to my own experiences at St. G's. Anyone know if there is a pattern of religious or not backgrounds among school shooters? Whether it is really important or not aside, I'm surprised the media hasn't looked for something like that...or at least the religious fanatics haven't. I did hear there was a shooting at a Catholic school somewhere in the US recently, so presumably the emphasis on this would suggest that previously all the shootings were at public schools with no religion allowed??? Or was this just another case of Catholics being fair game for bigotry in the US?
