College Credit for Creationism is the tagline of a renewed assault on education standards in the United States.

A group of Christian schools (Association of Christian Schools International—ACSI) and others, are suing the University of California—ACSI v. Stearns. The cause of their complaint is the refusal of the University to give credit for the creationism taught by the ACSI schools in place of biology and specifically evolution.

At issue in particular is the non-recognition of the Bob Jones University produced "science" textbooks which are short on science and long on pseudoscience and ideology. The issue is not a separation of church and state matter, but rather the surprising claim that in denying them credit for learning pseudoscience, the University is discriminating against students of the ACSI schools on the basis of religion.

[edit] Update

The court has ruled in favor of the University of California.[1] The case went to appeal, but the Supreme Court declined to review, thus bringing the case to an end.[2]
