According to the New York Times, six Calvary Chapel Christian School students, the school and the Association of Christian Schools International, which represents 4,000 religious schools, sued the University of California in the summer, accusing it of “viewpoint discrimination” and unfair admission standards that violate the free speech and religious rights of evangelical Christians. The suit says many of Calvary’s best students are at a disadvantage when they apply to the university because admissions officials have refused to certify several of the school’s courses on literature, history, social studies and science that use curriculums and textbooks with a Christian viewpoint. The suit is being closely watched by free-speech advocates, other public universities and Christian education leaders. All see it as a possible harbinger for admissions policies at state universities nationally.
