Nonsectarian Curriculum on The Bible
Remains in the Crosshairs

Elizabeth Ridenour formed the nonprofit National Council on Bible Curriculum in Public Schools (NCBCPS) to challenge the assumption that the Bible could not be taught in public schools. According to the NCBCPS, the curriculum "is concerned with education rather than indoctrination of students. The central approach of the class is simply to study the Bible as a foundation document of society, and that approach is altogether appropriate in a comprehensive program of secular education." But the elective curriculum has a "growing chorus of critics," from those who support evolution to those who objective to its conservative material.

Today the NCBCPS curriculum is in 37 states and 312 school districts, teaching 175,000 students.
