Controversy over Texas Bible teaching

Another controversy over Texas curriculum concerns Bible classes in the public schools. Questions include whether state law requires that a course be offered if requested by 15 or more students, and whether the State Board should adopt standards for Bible classes or leave everything up to the local districts.

    July 20:
    This post (March 30) has been getting a few hits recently from searches on Bible teaching in Texas.

    This did come up in the 5½ hour hearings Wed (July 16) by the Texas House Public Education Committee. I don’t know how much it was discussed there — the biggest topic was the ELAR standards — but I haven’t heard all of the hearing yet.

    Here is my post on the hearings, with a link to the archived videorecording (for RealPlayer).
