Indiana House passes bill affirming Indiana students' rights to pray out loud in school

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A bill that would affirm Indiana students' rights to pray out loud in school has cleared the state House and now moves to the Indiana Senate.

The measure would also encourage high schools to offer classes on world religions, and affirms students' right to wear religious clothing or jewelry.

Opponents question whether it's needed, since freedom of religion is already acknowledged in schools. They say the bill could harm students who don't participate.
