'By the end of the year, what they begin to realize is that it is pervasive. You can't get away from it. The kids came back and were like 'It's everywhere,'' said John Keeling, the social studies chair at Whitehouse High School. Whitehouse already offers a Bible elective. 'The purpose of a course like this isn't even really to get kids to believe it per say. It is just to appreciate the profound impact that it has had on our history and on our government,' said Keeling."
