I do not believe that the public schools are free to not accept the enrollment.

Any and all issues regarding the school.  Yes.  They have been given no
legal authority outside of that scope.

you are saying otherwise.

Are you actually saying that a public school can dismiss a student because
of the Church he or she attends?
