But how committed are we, really, to the idea that every child should have a chance at college? And is it enough just to get kids to college?

Guest: Shapri LoMaglio, Vice President for Government and External Relations, Council for Christian Colleges & Universities, Washington, D.C. A week ago, Canada’s Supreme Court issued a major ruling that is expected to having rippling effects across North America. The case involves a private Christian university in Vancouver called Trinity Western, which planned to open a law school, but has been stymied by the regional law society’s refusal to give accreditation. The reason is that the law society objects to Trinity Western’s mandatory code of conduct for students and employees which prohibits extramarital sex and does not recognize gay marriage. The law society says that discriminates against LGBT people. Canada’s Supreme Court agreed. Faith-based institutions across the US and Canada were watching this case closely.
