MORGAN COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT-TV) — Two months after Governor Ivey signed the bill, public schools in Alabama can now offer classes studying the Bible. This fall, Morgan County High Schools will start offering a class on Scripture.
“This legislation just came out recently. The guidelines just came out very recently,” Piedmont International University President Charles Petitt said.
Leaders from the Christian university in North Carolina offered to partner with Morgan County schools to offer a new course called “Survey of the Bible.” Families were invited to find out more about a new Bible course at the county school board meeting on Tuesday.
“It does package a lot of information in a hurry because you’re going to take a journey through the entire Bible,” Petitt said.
“[History is] not something I get a lot of at church. So, I’m excited to learn more about the history behind it,” Priceville High School junior Allison Flanagan said.
