Bible Study Now Will Be Available at High School After Student Makes Bold Move

via CBN News

A high school in West Virginia will have volunteer-led Bible study sessions before classes, following a student’s request.

The school officials will name a faculty sponsor to oversee the student-led group, which will be optional for students to attend.

The group may have guest speakers, but they must fill out a volunteer form. (Trending: Disgraced Democrat Sued For Sexual Assault)

The initiative has sparked discussions about the academic and religious value of the Bible in education.

The U.S. Department of Education’s guidance under the “Equal Access Act” allows non-curriculum related student groups, including religious groups, to meet on school premises during noninstructional time.

“We got an email about having a student-led Bible study (and) … the student came and talked to the principal about it,” said George Aulenbacher, assistant superintendent of high schools in Kanawha County.

“Kids come with a number of different ideas. The principal has the final say-so on the club,” Aulenbacher said. “I think it really varies on the student and the club. They want to start and work with a student to have a faculty sponsor.”

Elliot Namay said, “I think if it is students that want to form their own, that is perfectly fine, and if they want to have outside speakers come in to speak to that group, that is perfectly fine. They can have a priest, a rabbi come in periodically to speak to those groups as long as it is balanced.”
