What role did the Bible play in early American education? What events affected the establishment of the modern education system and the exclusion of religion in public schools? How does the recognition of biblical truth influence education and moral authority?
It's no secret that the influence of Christianity— and religion in general— on the American education system has changed overtime. While it may not be the case today, the Bible was once an integral part of American schools. The Exploring Education mini course traces the influence of Scripture throughout U.S. history and assesses the effects of its exclusion from modern schools, including the rise of "post-truth" morality.
