An attorney for a public school board in Kentucky claims complaints have prompted him to recommend the district remove “prayer lockers” from inside its schools. Pike County School Board Superintendent Reed Adkins said Kentucky’s Office of Education Accountability and a national organization advocating for separation of church and state received complaints about the prayer lockers. Students can request prayers for themselves or others by slipping a piece of paper into a repurposed locker. It’s unclear who started them. Attorney Neal Smith says he’s asking principals to stop the prayer lockers. He says religious student groups that meet before or after school are fine but having a space in the hallway during school hours and encouraging students to use it likely violates the first amendment.
