I'm a little split about it:
I think that if it's the students free time they should be allowed to read whatever they want as long as they aren't causing problems, however, on the other hand, I also think that academia is propagandized enough and religion should play no part in public schools. Our childrens minds are sick enough.

For crying out loud, it is a historical book!
Yah, lets ban all historical books?
A historical book with a lot of fantasy thrown in.
Well just stick around then while the children learn about the easter bunny, santa, and all the bs during halloween. The public schools are foundational promoters of these classic bs stories.
Updating our previous story about a fifth grader told by his teacher he could not read his Bible during free time, school lawyers for Broward County Public Schools have now gotten involved and changed their story.
They now say that the time in question is not free reading time, but instead Accelerated Reader Program time. During this period, students can only read certain approved books, and the Bible is not among them. Hence, Broward County Public Schools will continue banning the Bible.
