The Good News Club

The Christian Right's Stealth Assault on America's Children

In 2009, the Good News Club came to the public elementary school where journalist Katherine Stewart sent her children.

Astonished to discover that the Supreme Court had deemed this religious activity legal in public schools, Stewart began an investigative journey to dozens of cities across the nation to document the impact.

As Stewart makes chillingly clear, the rapidly expanding network of Good News Clubs represents just one of a range of initiatives intended to insert religious values into public schools.
