The reinstitution of the practice has taken different forms in many areas, though most areas in the US still prohibit it. Few areas allow oral prayer, but some have instituted a "moment of silence" or "moment of reflection" when a student may, if he or she wishes to, offer a silent prayer. Some opponents of the practice state that they wonder why children cannot offer a prayer during non-school hours, thus saving time during the school day and avoiding any real or perceived pressure in favor of organized religion.
The issue is still hotly debated and no clear resolution is in sight.
