H/T Voice of OC
The evangelical Christian school Vanguard University withdrew a reduced tuition deal with the County of Orange last week after an employee filed a complaint alleging the partnership violates the county’s nondiscrimination policy.
Voice of OC first reported on the controversy earlier this month. Supervisors asked their county counsel to research the issue after press inquiries.
The University cancelled the partnership “due to concerns voiced by a few county citizens,” according to an Oct. 21 letter from Lettie Cowie, Vanguard’s Vice President for Business Operations.
The employee voicing those concerns was our Publisher, Chris Prevatt.
In a Facebook recommendation/comment on the Voice of OC story this morning Prevatt wrote: “Looks like that Vanguard figured that their relationship with the county wasn’t a good fit.”
From the article:
“I’m pleased that the county’s relationship with Vanguard will soon end. I hope that the county takes this opportunity to revisit its policy, and add a requirement for their tuition partners to abide by state nondiscrimination laws in the delivery of their services,” Prevatt said.
