A Virginia school district got more than it bargained for when it placed one student on academic probation because her required community service hours were performed at a church. Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology backed down hours after the student filed a federal law suit accusing the school of religious discrimination. The lawsuit has not been dropped. Alliance Defense Fund attorney Matt Sharp said he will “work with [the school district] to change the unconstitutional policy” that states that faith-based activities “must have a secular purpose.”
