US Jesuit high school sues to get into public schools' league
    A Jesuit high school in Dallas wants to change the landscape of Texas high school athletics by suing the state's public league over its ban on private school membership.
    CNS reports that Dallas Jesuit College Preparatory School and Charles Gonzalez, the father of a student at the school, has filed a suit against the University Interscholastic League in US District Court in Dallas.
    47 states allow public and private schools to play in the same league. Of the 47 Jesuit high schools in the United States, only Dallas Jesuit and Houston Strake Jesuit are denied the opportunity to play in a public school league.
