The stickers are out, but new stickers are in......

During a meeting of the Seminole County School Board Tuesday evening, board members voted unanimously to place “disclaimer stickers” on the yearbook page in question clarifying that the walkout was not sanctioned by the school. Images of the page posted online show students holding rainbow LGBTQ+ pride flags. In one photo, a student holds a sign with the words “Love is Love” above her head.

“This is the most ridiculous thing,” school board Vice Chair Abby Sanchez said Tuesday during the meeting. “These are our children – we need to do what’s best for them.”

A motion made by school board Chair Amy Pennock to purchase disclaimer stickers rather than stickers to cover the entirety of the yearbook page was met with unanimous approval.

“As students, I’m proud of you for bringing it to our attention,” Sanchez said following the vote, addressing Lyman High School students who attended the meeting. “It’s important to know that every day we learn from you guys – there’s not a day that we don’t. So don’t ever lose your voice.”

These school districts need to grow a pair and stand up to that autocrat. I hope Zander Moricz just says fuck em and gives the speech he wants. If they threaten his diploma, there are a gaggle of lawyers who would take his case pro-bono

Gay high schooler says he's 'being silenced' by Florida's LGBTQ law (msn.com)
His principal — Stephen Covert of Pine View School in Osprey, Florida, roughly 70 miles south of Tampa — warned Moricz that if his graduation speech referenced his LGBTQ activism, school officials would cut off his microphone, end his speech and halt the ceremony, Moricz alleged.

“He said that he just ‘wanted families to have a good day’ and that if I was to discuss who I am and the fight to be who I am, that would ‘sour the celebration,’” Moricz, 18, recalled. “It was incredibly dehumanizing.”

Megaphones aren't expensive and would fit fine under a graduation robe. Assuming of course the school doesn't have armed infantry that will shoot him for 'displaying a weapon'.

Damn didn't know the faux woke outrage happening here in Canada. But only far right idiots are falling for this fake story

I suggest you don’t take their infiltration lightly. Their idiocy will spread like a cancer throughout your whole country and by the time it becomes serious it’ll be too late. Your country will be divided and your government will barely function.

I think our first amendment may be flawed and should have been a little more specific and instead said that we have the right to criticize our government free from retaliation. Having it more specific like that would allow us to tackle misinformation and propaganda.


Good luck!

Looks like the class Prez was clever enough to bypass all those knuckle dragging conservatives.

It is very strange. In fact, the issue of school curricula is quite complex. When I was in school, I was very worried because there were so many written assignments that I had to do. On the site https://edubirdie.com/mba-essay-writing-service I found help in writing an MBA essay and it helped me at least a little free time.
I absolutely agree with you.
