Georgia school district allows Bible course for students

A school district in Georgia is allowing juniors and seniors in high school to take a Bible course off-campus that counts for school credit. Madison County School District, according to superintendent Allen McCannon, “…has nothing to do with the teacher, has nothing to do with the curriculum, has nothing to do with the location.” It is not funded by government funds and the kids, 21 of them, are paying for the course with their own money. A local church is in charge of the course.

Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, the neighboring district, has a policy of not allowing kids to leave campus for religious reasons or to receive credit but superintendent Dr. Joyce Waddell said she can see their district being open to discussing the possibilities of Bible courses.
