Many liberals and atheists are concerned that Betsy Devos, President Trump’s newly appointed Secretary of Education, will allow the Bible to be taught in classrooms.
However, many Christians believe that this is a good idea; the Bible can be an excellent source of moral teaching.
From USA Today:
DeVos grew up in the Christian Reformed Church and graduated from schools affiliated with the tradition: Holland Christian Schools in Holland, Mich., and Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Mich.
The Christian Reformed Church, formed by Dutch immigrants settling the Midwest in the 1800s, grew out of Dutch Calvinism – splitting from the older Reformed Church in America in the 1850s.

But, Abram Van Engen pointed out in Religion & Politics, the Christian Reformed Church says nothing about vouchers or charter schools, and it never has threatened public education.
