*Students in a California public-school district will upgrade their textbooks this year – to the divinely inspired Word of God.

The Chino Valley School District in Chino, Calif., voted 5-0 in June to adopt a a yearlong Bible course titled “Bible as/in Literature and History.”

“It is my belief that better understanding the Bible will help all students with their decision-making process,” Fred Youngblood, president of the Board of Education, told OneNewsNow.

The course will be available as a social-studies elective to 12th–grade students this school year and fulfill general requirements for admission to California State University and the University of California.
