Charter school countersues over ACLU religion claims
An Inver Grove Heights charter school accused of crossing the line between religion and public education is fighting back against the American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota.
Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy (TiZA) says the ACLU, which sued the academy in January, defamed the school and hurt its ability to hire qualified teachers, according to counterclaims filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis.
In its suit, the ACLU alleged that the public school promotes the Muslim religion, violating the Constitution's First Amendment.
