Ah, yes. The demise of woke hegemony.

pb's three-headed monster fighting woke insanity is at it again. This time it's po's "fascistic and disgusting" "MAGA Republican" "Christian theocrats" who are just mommies and daddies and nannas and pappaps who merely want to raise their kids without government intrusion.

And, they are the object of discrimination at the hands of the woke education mafia.

The district, which serves nearly 7,000 students and is located near Penn State University, provides numerous extracurricular activities for enrolled students, including athletics, “student government, special interest and service clubs, dramatic performances, [and] literary publications.” Despite the district’s obvious disdain for charter schools and its onerous requirements for homeschool students, Pennsylvania law requires school districts to make extracurricular activities available to charter school or homeschool students who reside within them.

In defiance of the law, however, children within the district who attend the approximately 10 private religious schools in the area have been subjected to a “longstanding practice” of exclusion from extracurricular activities. The plaintiffs made multiple informal attempts to ensure their children could access extracurricular activities, but the district repeatedly denied them. Parochial school parents within the district created the Religious Rights Foundation to address this instance of religious discrimination, but its founders hope it can be a resource in future cases as well.

This exclusion “goes way beyond athletics,” Breth said, and it prevents students from parochial schools, which are smaller and have fewer extracurricular activities, from taking advantage of the numerous opportunities that the district proudly advertises on its website.

The Supreme Court has held that this type of discrimination based on religion is subject to strict scrutiny, which means the district must prove it has a “compelling interest” in preventing parochial school students from participating, and that its unofficial policy of exclusion is “narrowly tailored” to further that compelling interest. “Excess participation” by district students seems unlikely to be a compelling interest, especially since it’s likely that allowing parochial school students to participate would only increase numbers by a few hundred, not thousands of students.


I can't imagine that this will make its way to the Supreme Court but, if it does? POW!
