Kent Schools must provide space, but not funding, to exclusive church group
The Supreme Court denied certiorari yesterday to both the Kent School District and the Truth Bible Club. The club sought accreditation as a sponsored school club. However, they limited admission to students who took a pledge to God. This is a no-no in school clubs dealing with religion, as they have to allow any and all into the club in order to not violate separation of Church and State. The group will still be allowed to meet on school grounds, they just won't have the sanction of the student body, or the funding that comes with it. The 9th Circuit opinion will stand.
