LEGALLY PROTECTED 

You can teach Bible in Public School?

YES!

In 1980, U.S. District Judge Frank Wilson affirmed that teaching the Bible is constitutionally permissible.

“To ignore the role of the Bible in the vast area of secular subjects ... is to ignore a keystone in the building of an arch, at least insofar as Western history, values and culture are concerned,” wrote Wilson in his ruling.

Bible History teachers must be employed and supervised by the Hamilton County Department of Education.

Teachers must be licensed, certified and have a minimum of 12 semester hours of Bible content courses as part of their college education.

Bible courses are robust, for-credit electives that count toward graduation credit, and are offered to middle and high school students in participating schools.

No religious proselytizing, sectarianism or denominational recruitment is permitted.

The curriculum is court approved and regularly reviewed for full compliance.
