BLOGChristian Schools Must Be Ready to Stand Firm as Threats to Religious Liberty Increase

By Katie Heller Posted on: | May 06, 2016

I don’t know about you, but I am a little nervous about the state of our country, especially since we’ve, once again, put the safety of all our children at risk to placate powerful anti-liberty special interests.

In recent weeks we’ve seen the Department of Education (DOE) threaten to withdraw Title IX funding from numerous public school districts if they did not open their school restrooms and locker rooms to members of the opposite sex in violation of student privacy and safety. And, in a game of political chicken, the DOE continues to aggressively push to get what it wants—complete submission.

Although this push is happening primarily in public schools, who’s to say Christian schools won’t be next? We’ve already seen the backlash on Catholic schools for requiring their staff to follow the tenets of the Catholic faith.

That is why Christian school officials and leaders must be ready to take a stand whentheir schools are threatened and required to comply.

Scottsdale Christian Academy has partnered together with Alliance Defending Freedom, the Association of Christian Schools International, the Center for Arizona Policy to offer a conference to equip administrators, senior leaders, and board members of Christian schools for what lies ahead. The Religious Liberty Conference for Schools  is a one-day conference on June 13, 2016 in Scottsdale, AZ that will cover topics such as preventing and winning legal disputes, winning in legislatures and agencies, and a panel discussion with top experts in the legal, media, and public policy fields.

Find out more information on the conference by clicking here.  Early pricing registration ends May 15.
