FORT MYERS, Fla. (WBBH) – A newly proposed bill would make Bible courses a requirement in public schools in the state of Florida. Current state law says it’s okay to offer Bible classes, but it’s not a requirement.
House Bill 341, if passed, would give students a chance to learn about the New Testament and Old Testament in the Bible.
The bill notes students wouldn’t be required to use a specific translation of the Bible.
Others label the bill as a vague attempt of Bible study in public schools.
