Religious Schools

Today’s New York Times has a story about a fundamentalist Christian school where the students, aged 7 to 14, spend the entire day, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, memorizing the New Testament. No math, no science, no English: Just Bible study. And the Times goes out of its way to explain the benefits of this sort of schooling. You could have knocked me over with a feather.

I think I’ve got that right, but you'll want to check out the story for yourself, HERE.

Ann Althouse has more to say on the same subject.
