LGBT activists urge Biden to crack down on accreditation standards for Christian universities
The Human Rights Campaign, a gay advocacy group, released a 24-page wish list for Joe Biden’s presidential administration, including reinterpreting a Department of Education regulation.
The “Blueprint for Positive Change 2020” asks the future Biden administration to issue clarification that changes the current understanding of an education law in relation to accreditation of universities.
The group said that the current interpretation of the Higher Education Opportunity Act “could be interpreted to require accrediting bodies to accredit religious institutions that discriminate or that do not meet science based curricula standards.”
It wants the Department of Education to “issue a regulation clarifying that this provision, which requires accreditation agencies to ‘respect the stated mission’ of religious institutions,” and make clear that it “does not require the accreditation of religious institutions that do not meet neutral accreditation standards including nondiscrimination policies and scientific curriculum requirements.”
This executive action would harm Christian universities, the president of one of these universities said.
