Prayer in school
The status of prayer in public schools is a hotly debated one, especially in America. Proponents of prayer in schools essentially describe America as a Christian nation, while those who oppose it point out that America is a religiously diverse nation.
In the UK, prayer in state primary schools in enshrined in law, but often ignored or done half-heartedly—essentially like everything else to do with Anglicanism in Britain. Primary Schools are also required to have their students sing hymns, although many schools have them sing folk or traditional songs with vague spiritual overtones.
