A school will allow a prayer club despite pressures not to do so

A public elementary school in Washington state has reversed its decision to deny an interfaith prayer club's request to meet on campus, following initial rejection despite approval for an LGBT pride group.


Last month, Creekside Elementary School in Issaquah School District 411 declined an application for the prayer club, prompting controversy. However, after receiving a complaint letter from the First Liberty Institute representing two students advocating for the club, the district has changed its stance.

The FLI Associate Counsel, Kayla Toney, expressed satisfaction with the decision, emphasizing the importance of schools respecting students’ religious beliefs.

The spokesperson for Issaquah School District stated that the decision encompassed more than just the prayer club.
