    Edd Burleson says his Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools should have never let the Beren Academy join them last year.

    The director of a Texas private school association that came under fire for refusing to reschedule a game that conflicted with the Sabbath says an Orthodox Jewish school should have never been a member in the first place.

    Edd Burleson said his Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools should have never let the Beren Academy join them last year.

    TAPPS ultimately rescheduled the Beren playoff basketball game in March under the pressure of a lawsuit and public backlash.

    Burleson told The Dallas Morning News that he doesn't have the time for "politically correct gobbledygook." He said TAPPS would have ultimately prevailed if there had been more time to fight in court.

    TAPPS represents more than 200 private schools with almost 40,000 students statewide.
