Are Bibles Allowed In School?

Hmmmm what do you think? Do you think Bibles should be allowed in schools?

You might be surprised with the answer.

When I was a young girl, at the start of school we had milk and cookies, said the pledge of allegiance to the American flag, and shock and horror!!!!

We prayed!

Those were different times, in the 1950’s and early 60’s some of the biggest school discipline problems were gum chewing and hair pulling.  Unfortunately today, children are bringing weapons and drugs with them to school.  Gang activity seems at times to be unbridled in many of our schools. Reportedly kids as young as middle school age are having sex in the school bathrooms.

During those days (50’s and 60’s) there were no policemen in the hallways; true I did get swatted a time or two by my teacher (5th grade/Ga.). But for the most part we (the students) went to school to learn. Our teachers were there to teach. There are/have been five members of my immediate family in education (ranging from special needs teacher, grade school teachers, professor, and currently an assistant principle). My heart goes out to teachers in the 21st century, our schools are powder kegs.

The teachers have become either fearful or they are just there to collect a paycheck. Police are called for everything, many schools have police assigned to their schools. As a nation we seem to be spiraling out of control in so many areas. But sticking with the school theme I came across this article that was written in 2012 regarding crazy things school children were being arrested for. One thing that I found very disturbing was the discovery of School to Prison Pipelines.

Schools used to be a place for learning. In order for them to get back on track (I do understand that there are exceptional schools and teachers in America) I would just like that to be the norm instead of an anomaly.

In closing I would love to see Bibles in schools. In schools across America on a given day you are bound to find drugs, cigarettes, alcohol, condoms, weapons, etc…

Students are allowed to share their faith at school… if they do it on their own time. And ss long as there are test in schools, there will be prayer.
