Bible literacy approved to be taught in Kentucky schools

Posted: Updated:
Kentucky -

The State Education Board has approved bible literacy course standards for public schools. The controversial elective literature courses were approved to be taught in public schools statewide last year.

On Wednesday, the Board approved a guideline of standards for the material taught.

According to the Louisville Courier Journal, Board Spokeswoman Nancy Rodriguez says there is no set curriculum to ensure the districts follow these standards, but they're placing the responsibility to do so on each individual school.

In January, the ACLU claims they obtained course material from some public schools and found the classes were being taught as devotional study, rather than literature, as intended.
