The mandatory moment of silence established in Illinois schools as part of the Silent Reflection and Student Prayer Act has now been formally challenged. I’ve already said my piece on the act, so I’ll only repeat that it was only a matter of time before this happened.
And the waste of time, money, and resources continues.
On a side note, according to a Pantagraph article, there isn’t even a penalty for failing to observe the moment of silence. Doesn’t that make the law pointless anyway?
