I was under the impression *mandatory* prayer (i.e. schools making all students participate in a collective act of Christian worship irrespective of their beliefs or worship preferences) was banned in US public schools rather than *prayer*.
It would be quite hard to ban *prayer* as you can have a moment of prayer any time and no-one would know you were doing it...unless they were psychic!
Muslims have much more specific obligations regarding prayer but there's a big difference in school letting someone go off and fulfill their religious obligations and schools *making* everyone participate in prayer.
because its an obligation and a duty to fulfill 5 times a day they are not suppose to miss prayers wherever they are even if they are are at they job place market anywhere so they stick to the rules and make sure its known to everyone

because political fairness apparently applies to everyone except Christians. just kidding. No truthfully it's because we try to please to many people in today's society. I noticed on T.V all the time that it seems every show you watch makes fun of Jesus and mocks him, shows such as family guy and south park. But I bet if they showed a picture of Mohamed on tv people would be incredibly offended. I'm not trying to be preachy or offend anybody but I'm starting to notice that nobody cares how Christians feel anymore.
Every region has different way of pray to god! Normally when anybody need something they ask to god by pray. However in Muslims has to pray each and every words like, I want higher marks then Muslims just says ?INSHA ALLAHA? , I hope this make sense to you :)
Hmmm... I still see prayer circles around the American Flag all the time in public schools in my area.(a smaller city in Oregon) In fact praying or celebrating any religion here openly that isn't Christian would unfortunately cause harassment and violence to any individual involved. As a Christian myself who has seen this, this is rather ironic considering that isn't very Christian to begin with.
