SB1146 Update

The bill I blogged about earlier this summer, that would have put massive restrictions on religious schools throughout California in terms of their ability to dictate codes of student conduct in line with their doctrinal stances, has been rescinded.

Instead, the bill’s author is pushing for California religious schools to have to report to the State when they expel a student specifically in regard to their sexual orientation or behavior.  I still don’t see why this should be required, if the schools do indeed have a valid exemption, and their codes of conduct are clearly stated and communicated to students via their website as well as pre-enrollment documentation.

This is a huge – albeit undoubtedly temporary – victory by those who value religious freedom in education and oppose efforts to impose state-endorsed ideologies.
