Oklahoma State Superintendent Ryan Walters laid out the core principles for teaching children during an interview in July, according to the Washington Stand.
Walters said that children would be better off learning from the Bible instead of being forced to remember the woke, progressive ideologies being pushed through the public education system. He highlighted his core recommendations, which were listed by the outlet as:
- Enforce the existing state statute to hold a minute of silence at the beginning of the school day with the following announcement: “We now pause for a minute of silence in which students and teachers may use this minute to reflect, meditate, pray, or engage in any other silent activity.”
- Display a “durable poster or framed copy” of the Ten Commandments in each public school classroom.
- Require a “Western Civilization” course for graduation “to strengthen the heritage which was integral to the nation’s founding and its western culture, as well as to foster gratitude and informed citizenship.”
