A New York high school has transformed two vacant rooms into areas where Muslim students can pray during Ramadan.
A spokesperson for Shenendehowa High School said the decision to offer Muslim prayer rooms on public property is part of their effort to be culturally proficient.
“The school is trying to do a lot more to be culturally inclusive and so is the district,” school spokesperson Kelly DeFeciani told the Saratogian newspaper.
“We are trying to get people to understand all different cultures,” she told the newspaper. “We want to make the school conducive, so all students can learn, can feel accepted and feel understood.”
