On November 12, 2002 The Columbus Dispatch reported that "a dispute over Ramadan prayers at Brookhaven High School has been resolved, a Columbus Public Schools spokesman said yesterday. Andrew Marcelain said eight or nine students, some of whom left class, gathered outside the school to pray on Thursday. The students later met with Principal Robert Murphy, who explained the district's policy on prayer in schools, Marcelain said. The students returned to class and were not disciplined."
