    I don't "oppose prayer." By all means, have a "moment of silent contemplation" for students to use as they and their personal and family religious creed see fit. What I oppose is: 1) Public prayer that is imposed upon or (worse) required of students, particularly as another means of marginalizing some students; 2) Public prayer policies that elevate a religious tradition (e.g. Protestant Christianity) above others in what is supposed to be a secular environment, and; 3) Using "prayer" as a weapon to discriminate against students on the basis of their heritage, economic status, gender, or sexual orientation.
