Band, Art and Choir are all normal and fully accepted electives for middle school students but what about bible studies?
A new Rock Hill School District policy allows for middle school students, with parental approval, to attend church during elective periods instead of other electives, such as band, gym, etc.
School Ministries of Rock Hill Inc. is the group that’s now attempting to work out all the logistics regarding the transportation to and from school, participating churches, and feedback from local Rock Hill residents. They are now asking all parents of Rock Hill school students to fill out their survey to determine how the majority of the community feels about the new bible study elective policy.
The group is currently supported by 18 Rock Hill area churches and many local parents and citizens. They’ve also successfully established programs in York and Clover School Districts, as well as many other districts in South Carolina and across the nation – this new concept of a bible study elective in a public school was made possible by a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision.
Do you think Bible studies should be offered?
