OK Superintendent Lacks Authority to Decide Curriculum to Force Teachers to Teach the Bible

From the MarKODA Files-Rape, Incest, Slavery, and Abuse Edition:

Oklahoma State Superintendent Ryan Walters (Christofascist/Fundie Freak/Christian Nationalist) will mandate that all public school classrooms have a bible in them and teachers must teach the bible to their students because it is part of the US’ history. But, State Attorney General Gentner Drummond’s office said the superintendent does not have legal authority to decide content of curriculun and said Oklahoma law clearly enshrines local control.

"There's a reason we have elected officials in school boards, to make these decisions for what's best for that local community,” Croisant said.

In an interview with State Superintendent Ryan Walters, he said districts must comply despite how curriculum decisions are made now. Walters said the Bible will be taught in every classroom.

Great Interview—Better than the Fundie Freak One Posted Above:
