Yahoo News, January 29, 2019: Trump boosts bills to teach his favorite book — the Bible — in public schools
Donald J. Trump ? @realDonaldTrump
Numerous states introducing Bible Literacy classes, giving students the option of studying the Bible. Starting to make a turn back? Great!

From Yahoo News:
"Trump’s tweet came minutes after “Fox & Friends” aired a segment Monday morning on pending legislation in six states — Florida, Indiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Virginia and West Virginia — that would allow Bible literacy courses to become a part of a public school education."
The ACLU has responded:
“Yet again, President Trump is exploiting religious divisions to score political points. Public school Bible courses are rarely taught neutrally and objectively as required by the Constitution,” Daniel Mach, director of the ACLU Program on Freedom of Religion and Belief, told Yahoo News in an email. “Instead, these courses usually resemble Sunday school classes that blatantly violate students’ and parents’ First Amendment rights. Religious education is best left to families and faith communities, not public school officials.”
Trump is about religious as Putin. However, he certainly understands how to get votes.
He probably would be okay with corporal punishment of students too. Chewing gum in class? out back to be flogged.
"As of October 2, 2018, corporal punishment is still legal in private schools in every U.S. state except New Jersey and Iowa, legal in public schools in 19 U.S. states, permitted in 18, and practiced in 15 U.S. states."
Surprisingly, many states practice corporal punishment in schools. I didn't realize that until I searched for it.
