Tenn. approves guidelines for Bible class


NASHVILLE, Jan. 30 (UPI) -- Tennessee high schools will be getting guidelines from the state next fall on teaching the Bible as part of a secular curriculum.
The state board of education approved the guidelines Thursday, implementing a 2008 state law calling for "non-sectarian, non-religious academic study of the Bible," The (Nashville) Tennessean reported. The guidelines include a requirement that literature from other religions be available for students. Bible courses cannot be compulsory.
