Subscribe to RSS - Bibles and Religious Texts in Curricula

The Bible, Torah, Koran and other religious texts may be used in public schools as part of an objective program of study. Classes such as the Bible in literature or World Religions are legal as long as the approach is fair and no one religion is elevated over others. When offering these classes, public school officials must take care to ensure that teachers are properly trained and that they do not use the class as an excuse to indoctrinate students in any faith.
