|What Could Be More High School-Gay Rugby? (by ukhomeoffice)|
The federal Equal Access Act requires all schools receiving federal funds to offer fair opportunities for students to form extracurricular groups, regardless of religious, political and philosophical leanings. The Flour Bluff district has argued that it does not have to follow this law. Flour Bluff High principal James Crenshaw asserts that the school has the discretion to approve (or ban) any club. Flour Bluff had approved a Christian Athletic organization, but not the GSA. In a valiant display of democratic values, it is now banning gay and Christian clubs equally.
The ACLU entered the fray the week, giving Flour Bluff until Wednesday to approve the GSA or face a lawsuit.
