Tennessee to Ban Religious Indoctrination in Schools

Made you look!

Ah, if only.   A bill has been introduced to restrict the teaching of religious doctrine to students of 10th grade and above.  This is triggered by a spate of recent parental freak-outs over middle-school curricula that included units on Islam, and what its teachings are.  So, something tells me that middle-school classes choosing to mention what the principles of Christianity are, will draw exactly zero parental ire in Tennessee.  That will continue, happily unaffected by the illegality thereof.

I would really love to see a parent return a worksheet marked up like this


where the subject was the principles of Christianity.  But I don't think I will, certainly not from Tennessee.
