I would be content if the school used chalkboards rather than wasting, I mean spending money on smart boards. We should be spending money on plumbing, edible school lunches, and employee wages instead of on things that in my opinion, negligibly improve students' education.

No it wasn't. You aren't being forced to do anything.

It's not about being forced to do anything. Putting a nativity scene in front of a government building isn't forcing anyone to do anything either, but that still violates the first amendment.
The act's primary purpose is not secular. If its purpose was to be able to have students silently reflect at the beginning of the day, why was prayer mentioned so many times? Why not have students reflect on the bus or at their locker before the school day rather than wasting class time to do it? The act's principal effect advances religion. The act fosters an excessive government entanglement with religion. It fails all 3 components of the Lemon Test.

How does this violate your rights?

The first amendment states that no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise of religion shall be made. The purpose of the Student Prayer and Silent Reflection Act was to encourage the practice of religion.

They're asserting their monopoly power again...just as they've been doing for the last decade with the overpriced ipods.

Sorry, I tend to make a big deal out of things that violate the rights that are given to me in the first amendment.

Frankly, anyone who thinks an ancient civilization has the ability to predict the end of the world is unintelligent.

It sounds like they`re paying for it. They have every right to make you pay for it. Be glad about that (assuming that my assumption`s correct).
I don`t think needing it to call for rides home makes sense because there are pay phones and people who are willing to lend you their cellular telephone everywhere.
