"The Covenant School exists to glorify God by equipping students with the tools necessary to pursue a lifetime of learning so that they may discern, reason, and defend truth in service to our Lord, Jesus Christ. . ."
It's got itself some bad publicity - not for it's science teaching -
"Various supplementary articles will be provided throughout the year to provide information about current findings in science and to support a Biblical worldview of origin topics."
- but for it's girls basketball team.
As the Likelihood of Success blog reports it:
A Texas high school girls basketball team has apologized for winning big. The Covenant School, a private Christian high school in Dallas, defeated Dallas Academy last week in a blowout: 100-0. . . .
During the lopsided Jan. 13 game, spectators said the Covenant School ran up the score, playing aggressive offense, even with their 59-0 lead at halftime. The girls kept on the pressure until they scored the 100th point.
The Dallas Academy, a small private school with 20 girls, is for students with learning disabilities.
But the coach didn't agree with the apology , and has now quit.
I'm a definite believer in competitive sport at school. But it's interesting to see a case where competitiveness is pushed too far....
There's a whole load of stuff about this on the ESPN website here. With some heated audio debate here.
