JACKSBORO, TN. (WLAF)- The Campbell County Board of Education held a brief meeting last night.

While the usual business moved quickly, it was the subject of religion that took up most of the meeting.

Last month, a Wynn Elementary School official allowed members from the Stanfield Church of God to distribute prayer cloths and prayer bears. It was further allowed by the official for these items to be displayed at various points in the school. Another group was also allowed into the school to pray with students.

Board attorney Dail Cantrell reminded the board that when introducing religion into schools, the Bible release program at Campbell County High School is the model to be followed. Students are allowed to participate in the program as long as the time away from school is during “non- core curriculum” classes. Any class where a student might later take a standardized test can’t be missed. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED 01/11/2023- 6AM)

  1. I’m glad to see God’s people at work. I know there are some who would like to see this stop. I would rather see this, than all of the junk that’s being taught in other places.
