A San Diego school that drew international attention for setting aside time for Muslim students to pray in the classroom will no longer do so.
Instead, Carver Elementary's schedule will be reconfigured so students can say their required midday prayers during lunch. Courts have long upheld students' rights to pray on their own during lunch or recess.
Another controversial element of Carver's educational program geared toward Muslim students – single-gender classes – will be eliminated.
