Oklahoma schools required to include Biblical instruction

by ian

Oklahoma public schools are now requiring Bible teachings as part of their curriculum.

Oklahoma Superintendent of Public Instruction Ryan Walters issued a memo yesterday saying that school districts across the state are now required to incorporate the Bible and the Ten Commandments into lessons for grades 5-12, for historical context.

Walters told the Washington Examiner, “There is a critical need to study the Bible and the Ten Commandments in Oklahoma’s classrooms.” He added, “This is not merely an educational directive but a crucial step in ensuring our students grasp the core values and historical context of our country.”

The new curriculum will go into effect in the fall.
