Social media divided on religion in school
by Stefania Summermatter and Gaby Ochsenbein
Do pupils have a right to pray in state schools? An article on this issue published by swissinfo.ch in ten languages lit up social media with hundreds of reactions. Many readers call for the separation of religion and state; others find these prayer spaces do no harm and could even facilitate integration.
The article "Should schools be neutral zones for religion?" dealt with the situation in two Lucerne schools that decided to set up prayer rooms. It also explored the relationship between school and religion.
Here is a selection of reactions that were posted on our Facebook pages. They have been translated from various languages.
