House Bill 195 has been proposed in Florida and if passed would allow for religious studies in public schools.
The classes would not be a requirement, but would be offered to students in grades 9 through 12.
The bill says, “A course offered pursuant to this section may not endorse, favor, or promote or disfavor or show hostility toward a particular religion, religious perspective, or nonreligious faith.”
States like Oklahoma, Kentucky and Texas have offered such classes in their public schools, but have not made them mandatory.
There are some lawmakers that have protested such classes and called them “unconstitutional”.
What are your thoughts on such classes being offered in public schools?
