Christian Course Credit Denied by University of California

Students Who Used Christian Textbooks Denied Course Credit

Updated February 4, 2020

According to this Fox News Story, a federal judge in California ruled that students who used Christian textbooks such as  BJU Press Biology for courses in a private Christian school can be denied course credit by the University of California. It is “because those texts failed to teach critical thinking and omitted important science and history topics.”

The lawyers for ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International), the two schools, and several students who filed the initial lawsuit will appeal the case. Go team! Let’s pray for them.

Apparently, BJU Press Chemistry was OK with U.S. District Judge James Otero of Los Angeles.

You can  Read Full Story at the San Francisco Chronicle website.

Isn’t he the same judge who ruled that homeschooling is not legal in California unless you have a valid teaching credential?

Wake up, America!

Thanks to my lovely homeschooled daughter who gave me this news. Using her “critical thinking skills” she deduced that I would be concerned about this “important science and history” topic. I give credit to her study of The Fallacy Detective and Thinking Toolbox.
