At Apple Valley High School, south of St. Paul, Principal Stephen Degenaar said that his school’s Muslim population has gone from five to about 100 since he arrived at the district in 1994. “We may be the only school out here right now that’s doing prayer time during the day,” he said.
As word of this spread in the community, Degenaar said he got phone calls from people who asked about the practice but concluded, “Well, since our Christian kids have had the FCA club for over 25 years here, and we have an active Bible study club going on, why should we not allow the Muslim kids to have the same opportunity?”
“I feel like me missing my prayers is something that I’ll feel down about,” he said. “Five times, just to remember your Lord, the God that created you … almost an hour a day is not a lot.”
But Degenaar recently suspended prayer time for Muslim students at Apple Valley, except for Friday prayers, because some students were violating the rules. He said they were wandering the hallways and playing on their phones instead of praying.
The move upset more religious students, who said they shouldn’t be punished for the acts of a few. The principal said prayer may be brought back by the spring.
