Public Schools Adopting Bible Curriculum - Yours Can Too!  
September 10, 2003

The American Family Association is now working in cooperation with the National Council On Bible Curriculum In Public Schools (NCBCPS) to return Bible curriculum to the public high schools of America, on campus, during school hours, for credit with the Bible as the textbook.

The NCBCPS has had great success with school districts over the past eight years with this curriculum; and over 153,000 students have already taken this course nationwide.


The Supreme Court says that it is legal to teach Bible curriculum, as does the National Secretary of Education.

Stephen M. Crampton, Chief Counsel for the AFA Center for Law & Policy, stated: "We have carefully reviewed the NCBCPS curriculum, and found it to be constitutional in every respect. For that reason, we have promised to defend against any lawsuit challenging its constitutionality, free of charge, provided only that the school in question implement the curriculum without material alteration."


Some liberal organizations would try to say that the Bible can only be taught in the context of a World Religions course, but this is not true. In Abington Township v. Schempp (374 US 203), the court made a ruling: "...It certainly may be said that the Bible is worthy of study for its literary and historic qualities. Nothing we have said here indicates that such study of the Bible or of religion, when presented objectively as part of a secular program of education, may not be effected consistently with the First Amendment."


Members of the Board of Directors and Advisory Board include Dr. D. James Kennedy, Dr. Bill Bright (who recently passed away), Joyce Meyer, John Hagee, David Barton, Judge Darrell White, attorneys and legislators from various states, Chuck Norris (the actor) and his wife Gena, Dean Jones (actor), Jane Russell (actress), and Captain Scott O'Grady, among others.

The Bible course curriculum has now been voted into 244 school districts in 33 states. While the ACLU and People For The American Way try to bully and intimidate some school districts, there has never been a legal challenge to this curriculum.


Elizabeth Ridenour, President of NCBCPS, says that it is a fairly easy process for people to implement this in their local school districts. To learn how to implement Bible curriculum in your local district, please call toll free 1-877-On-BIBLE, or visit online.
