Florida to require daily moment of silence in schools for students to 'reflect, pray as they see fit'

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill Monday requiring schools in the Sunshine State to require a moment of silence before class each day, allowing students to “reflect and be able to pray as they see fit."

“The idea that you can just push God out of every institution and be successful, I’m sorry, our Founding Fathers did not believe that,” DeSantis said before signing the legislation behind a placard that read “protect religious liberty,” according to News Service of Florida.
