Register Praised For Stand On Bible Classes
Pete Austin III, of the local group Bible in the Schools, lauded Hamilton County School Superintendent Jesse Register on Thursday for his support of the Bible History classes taught in county schools.
“I am so pleased to have a superintendent of schools that believes teaching the Bible in public schools is a valid educational pursuit,” Mr. Austin told the Downtown Rotary Club.
“We wouldn’t have Bible classes in Hamilton County Schools without Jesse Register,” he said.
Mr. Austin’s group, Bible in the Schools, reimburses the school system the full costs - salary and benefits - of all 14 Bible History teachers serving in 17 middle and high schools across Hamilton County. Mr. Austin said their financial support has kept Bible classes in the local system for the last 81 years.
