Hello Answerlanders,

A student is looking for our help:

"Hi, I am a student at Veritas School, a small private school in Newberg, OR. My teacher, Mr. Linhart, has assigned a research project about whether public schools should teach sacred texts as literature. The minor premise is 'Teaching sacred texts as literature in public schools would educate future citizens with basic ethical foundations, with a deeper knowledge of the world and people around them, and with an appreciation for different religious traditions.' My questions are: Do sacred texts truly provide basic ethical foundations? Are there any professors of ethics that I can contact for expert advice? Are there any books at my library that can point me in the right direction?"

You can find this question in the Shared Followup list in QuestionPoint. (Question 11869720)
