Why on this particular day? And is this supposed to be non-students and parents who don't have students at the public school who are going to show up?

Prayers at the flagpole have been going on in most schools for years.

What hasn't been going on is non-students and adults who don't have students at a school showing up on campus. That's pretty much a no-no at all the public schools I know about.

From this story, it sounds like a bunch of home-school kids and their parents are going to show up at a public school and insist on praying at the flagpole. Bad idea.

There's a good reason to keep people who aren't students or parents of students off our public school campuses. It's the law in most places.

I volunteer at schools to do sessions on my area of expertise. I have to get a background check, a TB test, and have a specific class and time before I'm allowed on campus.

What the heck? The students at the schools are already praying around the flagpole. I assume the home-school kids are praying wherever they want. This just doesn't make sense to me.
