Representative Kimberly Daniels (D-Jacksonville) said prayer should have never been taken out of schools and that is why she is sponsoring a bill to put it back in.

Daniels said:

If we open the door for Christian clubs, for children to join Christian clubs, there would be less going (to) street gangs.

Under her bill, students could use their religion as the subject of an assigned essay, wear clothing promoting their faith and hold a prayer group during school hours. The legislation promoting religious expression would open the door to any faith.

Currently there is no statewide policy in place regarding these issues. Decisions on what is appropriate are being made locally according to the bill’s co-sponsor Senator Dennis Baxley (R-Ocala).

He said:

And I think generally, there is a chilling effect and a sense by many that you are supposed to sterilize the environment of any free expression.
