"To school teacher Isaac Moffett, the Bible is not just a religious document. 'It’s so much more,' he said. 'It’s a primary source of history. It’s a primary teaching source of actual people who lived during the time period.' ... At issue is the Nampa Classical Academy, a charter school, founded by Moffett in 2009. One year later, Idaho’s Board of Education shut the school down, citing its use of 'religious texts' inside classrooms. Moffett says he only used the texts to teach history and is now suing the Board in federal court. His lawyer calls it a blatant violation of the U.S. Constitution." [editor's note: Maybe the kicker would be seeing if he was willing to add the Koran and the Upanishads to his curriculum? - SAT] (09/15/11)
