"Interfaith Coalition Unveils Public School Bible Course"

I'm actually optimistic about this. I realize that even the most well-meaning and neutral-sounding Bible curriculum can be distorted by a teacher bent on hammering a singular ideology into his students' heads. But, first of all, the same can be said for any subject. More importantly, though, any good general education - religious or secular - warrants some familiarity with the most important work of the Western Canon. Too much of understanding the world around us depends on it.
