  1. Why is it that bibles can be read in prison, but not school.

      Because they have no place in an educational setting. It is a state funded entity intended to teach youth. A millenia old fictitious book with 0 intellectual value should is not part of that process.

      Funny, I always found that readings and discussions about existentialism, helps to balance an individual by improving their   emotional quotient (EQ). The Bible can provide that, academic study does not. Our society’s quickly growing existential crisis, can surely benefit from a small dose of bible teachings.  Or perhaps you have an explanation as to why the many other assigned  “fictional” readings, are somehow more beneficial and justified?

      In a course dedicated to such, I have no problem with it. So long as it balanced out by learning of other religions/forms of spirituality/whatever. I took your question to mean to just be incorporated into school like the Pledge of Allegiance, or prayer, or what have you. If that's not the case, I digress. 

       

      To answer that last question- for 2 very big reasons. 1) To understand literature and the craftsmanship of the writers. It expands the vocabulary, teaches composition skills, how to structure thought and illustrate. How to use creative imagining. To understand concepts. To gain perspective about a different culture or time. 2) And this is MORE important- those books don't deny they are fiction. There is no shame in fictional writing and story telling. But imagine a school passing off the Bible as a work of fiction. There'd be rioting.
