When it comes to their child’s education, most Americans agree that parents should have a choice when it comes to prayer in school, what the students wear and how much of the year they spend in class. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 76% of American Adults think parents should have a choice between sending their children to a school that allows in-school prayer and one that does not. Thirteen percent (13%) do not believe parents should have that choice, but another 11% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
