(Louisville Courier Journal)— A Kentucky high school will not offer a course on the Bible because of legal concerns over a 2017 law that allows the teaching of such electives in the state’s public schools.
The school-based decision making council for Anderson County High School in Lawrenceburg voted unanimously Tuesday to instead offer a “World Religions” course.
The World Religions course will be an optional elective that covers Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and other popular world religions, officials said.
Anderson County High, which began its new school year Thursday, originally planned to offer a “Bible Literacy” course focused on the historical influences of the Old Testament.
