      Hi jana
      the schoolkids (and teachers :) must be counting down the last days
      of school now.
      When I worked in the k-6 school system, I would work with sp.ed.
      students as they had tests modified. those days were so stressful for
      the students, I remember being completley exhausted the end of the
      day. the sad thing is, we cant offer spiritual support to the
      students in any manner.there's so much about the system that needs to
      be changed to benefit the kids, in many ways. I dont see the harm in
      allowing a child to pray to his/her god if that what may give him/her
      a sense of peace. i'm really not a holy-roller! just seeing that
      things havent necessarily changed for the better within the classroom.
      have a good week!
