    Bible Education: Reviving an American Tradition

    Heard about this on K-LOVE the other morning:

    New legislation in South Carolina signed by the governor will allow students to receive elective credit for taking Bible classes off-campus. Read story here.

    Another story said:

    About 270,000 students around the country participate in release-time programs, according to the national Bible Education in School Time Network.

    Only two states - Georgia and now South Carolina - authorize high school elective credit for release time, said state Sen. Chip Campsen, R-Charleston, who sponsored the legislation.

    Under the law, students can earn up to two elective credits in release time. Districts will decide whether to extend the credit, and they have to evaluate proposed courses on a secular basis, as they do when deciding which credits to accept for a student transferring in from a private religious school.
    Let's hope this trend continues across the country. In Colonial America, the Bible was used as a textbook. What a great opportunity this is to forge a return to that practice and to offer a real education alternative to today's secular indoctrination.

    Baptists have so much potential to influence and champion things like this! Do any of you know about any churches who are involved in programs like this and how they've been going? Or, anyone considering starting something like this themselves? We'd like to hear about it.

    Check out the Best (Bible Education in School Time) Network for more information on Bible education across the country. They'll even send you a start-up kit.
