Bible in prison

I have a dear friend who has volunteered his time and energy for the past 30 years with a small group of other men going to the local prison to engage in a "Prison Ministry."  Through those years hundreds of men have changed their lives by submitting to Jesus.  They have studied, prayed, read their Bibles throughout their long days in lock-up, experienced testimony from each other that has led those released to change the course of their former life of crime to a life of love, productivity and contribution to society-at-large.  The prison system is administered by the government who incarcerates the men as sentences are carried out by judgments of having been found guilty of various crimes.  Prison Administrators and Guards often admit that having prayer meetings, Bible reading and life conversions help quell the problem issues in the prison populations.

Tell me then, if the Bible, prayer and teaching of Christian principles have such impact in our prison systems, why is it so important to completely ban the Bible and prayer in our public educational systems?
