Steering Committee For LifeWise Religious Program, Advocates For School Safety Officers, Address Oconee County Board Of Education

***Opponents Of LifeWise Also Spoke Up***

All six members of the local steering committee asking Oconee County Schools to set aside an hour in the school day for independent, off-campus religious instruction appeared before the Oconee County Board of Education on Monday.

They offered consistent but somewhat different arguments for putting the issue on the agenda for future discussion by the Board or simply for adopting the plan and Bible-based curriculum developed by LifeWise, an organization in Ohio.
