Proposed legislation would allow Kentucky students to take part in religious activities at public schools

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A bill is making its way through the Kentucky legislature that would allow students to take part in religious activities at public schools.

Supporters say the measure would be a guide for school officials on how to allow students to express their religion. The bill also would allow public school teachers to use the Bible to teach about the history of religion and its role in the U.S.

Senator Perry Clark calls it an attempt to establish "one ecclesiastical policy as pre-eminent over others."

Senate leaders say the bill could be debated in the chamber as soon as Friday.
