School District Learns That Religious Discrimination In Sports Is Out-Of-Bounds

From the Liberty Counsel.

“On Monday, the North Oldham County School District in Buckner, Kentucky reversed a decision that discriminated against junior Kim Osborne because of her religion, after receiving a demand letter from Liberty Counsel.

Kim had attempted to get approval from Coach Brian Jones in January to miss practice, a full six months before a national church youth event. Coach Jones told the Kim that summer practice was absolutely mandatory but allowed two other players to miss a week of summer practice to attend the Governor’s Scholars Program.

After receiving the letter from Liberty Counsel, the school district agreed to allow Kim attend the Christian event without losing her place on the volleyball team.

Liberty Counsel needs your help so we can continue to provide help to students like Kim. “
