How can WE Bring bible history to OUR school?
That’s a question we frequently hear. Introducing Bible history classes into a local school or school district can be challenging. Many people have misconceptions as to the legality, necessity and historical precedent of offering Bible history electives to public school students.
But the good news is that teaching Bible in public schools is legal, necessary and, at least in Hamilton County, a tradition dating back more than 90 years.
In order for Bible history to be taught in your local public school, it should:
- be supported by the principal or superintendent
- receive broad community support
- be 100% funded with private contributions to your local school district
In recent years, several communities have gathered to fund a Bible history teacher in their local schools. If you are interested in learning how to fund a Bible history program in your local school, please contact us.
