Rich Lowry of National Review writes on a topic which has been popping up in the media of late, whether Bible literacy should be taught in public schools.
Although I'm generally in favor of the idea, one thing gives me pause, in that so much depends on what an individual teacher does with the material. My lone public schooler, a H.S. senior, is currently in an AP Civics class where the far left-wing teacher is seeking to indoctrinate the students with Michael Moore movies and other non-curricular materials. (The stories I could tell...) A teacher of his ilk teaching a Bible literacy class would be a disaster.
