Alabama legislator introduces bill that would require 15 minutes of prayer each school day

So, Alabama isn’t exactly great when it comes to education.  Yes, the GOP is all about the fetus when it’s in the womb, but after that they’ll begrudgingly help the kid as much as they’re made to.  For instance, Alabama ranks 46th in the nation (probably 47th, since Oregon wasn’t ranked) in teacher quality.  Since 2008 per pupil spending in Alabama has plummeted by 20%.  Point being, Alabama has some problems when it comes to education compared to the rest of the country.
But don’t worry!  Rep. Steve Hurst is going to fix all of that.  House Bill 318 has the solution to all those pesky education woes, and it won’t cost the government a dime!
At the commencement of the first class of each day in all grades in all public schools, the teacher in charge of the room in which such class is held shall, for a period of time not exceeding 15 minutes, instruct the class in the formal procedures followed by the United States Congress. The study shall include, but not be limited to, a reading verbatim of one of the opening prayers given by the House or Senate Chaplain or a guest member of the clergy at the beginning of a meeting of the House of Representatives or the Senate.
