Although sometimes referred to as a religion, secular humanism is generally considered to be a belief system that negates religion. Public schools may not teach religion, although teaching about religion in a secular context is permitted. 1 The Bible may be taught in a school, but only for its historical, cultural or literary value and never in a devotional, celebratory or doctrinal manner, or in such a way that encourages acceptance of the Bible as a religious document.
