Florida lawmakers are currently considering H195, which mandates that elective courses on the Christian Bible and Hebrew Scriptures be offered in public schools. While high school courses focusing on the historical or literary aspects of the Bible are not intrinsically unconstitutional, they are certainly wasteful of scarce educational resources and expose schools to unnecessary legal scrutiny and liability. The Constitution places strict requirements on such courses, and schools are frequently unable or unwilling to meet those requirements. This legislation is a thinly veiled attempt to proselytize to children in public schools. Please tell the Florida House Education Committee that you oppose this bill!
