Lawsuit filed against approval of Oklahoma’s first religious charter school
A religious group in Oklahoma received approval by the Oklahoma Statewide Charter School Board to operate a charter school. This is being challenged in the Oklahoma County District Court. The spokesman for the defendants indicated that denial of the right to operate would constitute discrimination based on religion.
