Title: Religion in the classroom as modeled by King's "Letter From Birmingham Jail": we don't have to believe it to get it.
Source: Journal of African Children's and Youth Literature
Key Points: Teaching the Bible is not only interesting, but a legitimate way to engage students by introducing them to the beliefs and stories of generations of people. Religion may not belong in our classrooms, but the perspectives of presently one-third of the world's population and how over thousands of years they have turned to the Bible for instruction is something we should not deny our students.
Intended Audience: politicians, administrators, teachers, parents, students.
Relevance: This is relevant since many believe excluding religion must also mean banning the Bible from our classrooms. They are not necessarily one in the same.
