AUSTIN - Schools would be encouraged to treat students' religious viewpoints in class assignments the same as those of secular expression under legislation tentatively approved Monday by the Texas House.

Under the legislation, religious beliefs expressed in homework, art work and other assignments would be judged by traditional academic standards. Students couldn't be penalized or rewarded because of the religious content of their work.

The House voted 210-33 in favor of the measure. The chamber is expected to give final approval Tuesday.
