No praying in schools! But no ban on praying outside school for the survival of public education in Molwaukee, now in the hostile hands of Scott Walker and the Wisconsin legislature.


Members of Milwaukee’s faith community and public school supporters will hold a prayer vigil for public schools this Thursday at 4:30 p.m. The event is organized by the Milwaukee Inner-City Congregations Allied for Hope (MICAH).

After a brief prayer vigil at Bethesda Baptist Church, participants will walk to Hopkins-Lloyd Community School, where community and faith leaders will share information with participants about the proposed public school takeover plan that is being advanced by Rep. Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield) and Sen. Alberta Darling (R-River Hills).
