The school board voted 7-0 April 10 to create a policy that would ban all “sexually oriented clubs, gay or straight or otherwise.” School system spokesperson Kathy Walters said the board could vote on adopting the policy at its April 24 work session or its May 8 board meeting, but a date hasn’t been decided yet.
“Sex-oriented clubs have no place in our school system, gay or straight,” said board member Jim Shuping, who proposed the action. “They are disrespectful and disruptive to our educational process…. We need to take a step back from this and take control of our schools.”
This ban would clearly apply to a “Gay To Straight” club. I’m sure Liberty Counsel will swoop in to fight for the legions of students who wanted to form an ex-gay club.
