Florida Rep. Kimberley Daniels (D-Jacksonville) is trying to pass legislation in the state to require Florida public schools statewide offer religious study classes as elective courses for students.

WINK News wants to know what you think about this potential law. Do you say Yes or No?

In the bill, it is “requiring each school district to offer specified courses relating to religion, Hebrew Scriptures, and the Bible to certain students as elective courses; requiring such courses be included in the Course Code Directory; providing course requirements; providing an effective date.”

Daniels previously passed legislation through the state requiring all Florida public schools display the words “In God We Trust.”
