When I was growing up we learned about the Bible at Sunday School (actually it was called Hebrew school, but you get the idea). I am a firm believer in the separation between church and state and I think all this hoopla about a new textbook that will teach about the bible and its religious implications in school is not only unneeded but will alienate people who's religion is not based on the bible. From the AP article there is no mention of any other holy books like the Koran, the Bhagavad Gita, the Tao-te-ching, the Upanishads or the Veda. If I was a Hindu, Muslim, a Taoist or anything other than a Christian or a Jew I would feel pretty left out.
It's already the costliest High School ever built, with over $175 million spent on it so far. It has been put on hold for the last 4 years due to it being built on top of a major earthquake fault and an oil field that is leaching methane and hydrogen sulfide gas. The plan as it stands now is to tear down 2 buildings that are directly above the fault and build 2 more elsewhere, as well as install pipes and monitoring systems to keep the toxic gasses in check.
