1963 A Wrong Choice Americans should allow prayer back in public schools Since 1963 when we banned prayer dropout rates juvenile crimes and teen pregnancies have increased Also academic scores have decreased These are results from one action - prayer being banned We should guarantee students and teachers their constitutional right of freedom of speech and religion Everyone should have the right to choose when and where the worship Studies show that since the court decision in 1963 banned prayer dropout rates have increased The numbers vary from school to school but in one Texas City 30 more students dropped out in 1993 than in 1963 This study shows that in schools where students ban together and pray in groups the dropout rate is much smaller - only 5 - 10 This rate is proportional to support and encouragement a student is given If a student feels he or she has no where to turn then they might turn away from all authority and decide no one cares In the early 1960s 40 of students studied committed fewer juvenile crimes than in the early 1990s Lack of morals and values are major reasons for the increase in crime Juvenile crimes increase as lack of support decreases A 1991 study shows that in schools where strong support groups hold students accountable for their actions there is a lower tendency toward criminal behavior One student is quoted saying When my teacher asks about me and prays for me I feel that someone cares and is concerned about me It is evident in todays public schools that teen pregnancy is on the rise In South Carolina two schools were chosen to be studied One of these schools had a strong religious background Many students attended church and they had daily prayer meetings before school The other school did not have prayer groups at school and only a few of the students attended church
