President Donald Trump put new rules in place on Thursday to protect the rights of students to pray in public schools.
To mark Religious Freedom Day, Trump announced his administration will require schools to certify they don’t have any rules that conflict with a student’s right to pray and to notify the Education Department if there are any complaints against the right to pray.
