The Bible and Public Schools: A First Amendment Guide.
Vanderbilt Univ., Nashville, TN. Freedom Forum First Amendment Center.; National Bible Association, New York, NY.
This First Amendment Guide promotes a model of religious fairness and respect. Public schools should protect the religious-liberty rights of students of all faiths or none. Curriculum should include study about religion as an important part of a complete education. The advice offered in this guide draws on shared vision and relies on recent consensus statements about the role of religion in public schools under current law. The focus is on the Bible because of the need to address the conflicts and confusion surrounding the Bible in the public-school curriculum. (Contains 21 notes.) (BT)
