Victory! Odessa school district will continue teaching Bible curriculum

During the ECISD (Ector County ISD) 12:00 noon board meeting today in Odessa, Texas, it was decided that the ACLU’s attack will not stand. The school district will continue teaching Bible courses with a curriculum developed and monitored by ECISD that will utilize the Bible as the primary course textbook. This is a great victory against the ACLU and People for the American Way – who filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court against the school district back in May 2007 for teaching classes on the Bible’s history and literature. We want to express our great thanks to Mediator Hesha Abrams for fostering this agreement. Click here for our press release.

This is a great victory for ECISD and the community.  ECISD will continue to offer a Bible course, it will be a curriculum of its own choosing, it may use portions of any existing curriculum as a resource, and the Bible will be the main textbook for the course.

Thanks to all of you who prayed for and donated toward this case. We couldn’t have done it without you!
