- Growing number of states pushing ‘Bible literacy’ classes in public schools. (Fox News) — A growing number of states are considering bringing the Bible back to the classroom. At least six states — Florida, Indiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Virginia, and West Virginia — have introduced legislation this year pushing for public schools to offer Bible literacy classes. Supporters say learning the basics of the Bible is an important part of American history — and students should not be denied learning its tenets just because someone might be offended. The laws being proposed do not make Bible classes mandatory, but they will be offered as electives.
