Florida County Approves Bible Study
But Move Will Face Court Challenge

FORT MYERS, FL - The school board in this Florida County has adopted a policy to allow schools to teach Bible studies. The curriculum will be elective and will focus entirely on the New Testament.

Opponents of the curriculum are threatening legal challenges, but the board's position is that the Bible can constitutionally be taught as history and as an aspect of American culture.

Lawyers for the district and a liberal activist group, People for the American Way, assert that the curriculum, which was developed by the North Carolina-based National Council on Bible Curriculum, will not withstand a constitutional challenge.
