NY School Relents, Allows After-Hours Bible Study

Ad Feedback

A high school student-led Bible study in Amsterdam, N.Y., will be allowed to keep meeting in their school building just like any other student-led club.

When the Bible study started, the school superintendent told club members they would need to buy an insurance policy to use the school's facilities after hours.

The request was not something required of other student-led programs, so the parent of a senior in the club reached out to the American Center for Law and Justice for help.

The ACLJ defended the students by gathering information that proved the Bible study must be given the same privileges as any other student-led club.

"If other student-led clubs are not required to obtain insurance policies, this senior should not be required to obtain one for the Bible club," the ACLJ stated.

The school dropped the request, allowing the students to meet there now.
