MCPS Promotes Religious Literacy Through Pilot Program for Teachers (VIDEO & PHOTO)
When 37 Montgomery County Public School teachers return to their classrooms they will know much more about the religious beliefs and practices of people in our communities. They are taking part in a pilot program designed to promote religious literacy.
Walter Johnson High School teacher Christopher Murray organized the five-day program with Steven Adleberg, the Education Outreach Director for the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington.
