Are there any Western countries that enforce prayer in public schools?

I'm having a hard time finding this info. Anybody know or can anyone point me in the right direction for finding info. Thanks.

3. That really surprises me, although I think they have

a state religion too.

5. Church of England :-)

Growing up we had regular services in schools, but at least at our school ALL religions were invited - we even had a couple of agnostics and atheists running the service.

It was actually great and I learned tolerance and understanding of others from those services.

6. Technically the UK does, or did when I was an exchange student there

It was pretty much a joke back then, but they're a country with a state religion at least in theory.
