Muslim Peel students can write own sermons, but prayers will again be supervised
The Peel District School Board is stepping back from a new policy that forced Muslim students to chose from a bank of stock sermons during Friday prayers, rather than writing their own.
In a revised policy released Friday, board staff recommend that students be given a choice between delivering sermons of their own creation, or choosing between a series of pre-written sermons approved by local imams.
Friday prayers will continue to be supervised by a staff member, the revised policy says.
Trustees will vote on the proposal at their regular meeting next Tuesday evening.
