Battling (still) for equal access on campus

teacher reading to kindergarten bigAn Oklahoma school district has revoked the license of a Christian club for students and is discouraging the club from promoting itself anywhere else.

 

 

 

The Owasso Public Schools revoked the ability of the Kids for Christ club to promote its events. At the same time, other groups and businesses were allowed to distribute flyers, signs, and announcements. Matt Sharp, litigation staff counsel for Alliance Defense Fund, is helping defend the Christian club.

“All of the court cases on this have dealt with specifically this type of discrimination,” Sharp explains, “where all of the other community groups are allowed in, but a Christian religious group is specifically targeted and excluded because of its religious nature.” (Battling (still) for equal access on campus )
