And I'm curious...who authorized the Gay/Straight Alliance to use the West Bend High Schools as part of their formal name?
Though the group insists they won't be paying their volunteers or ask for taxpayer funds, who's to say they won't in the future? And how will you be able to stop them? Too late!
They're making curricular ties with PSYCH and SOCIOLOGY? This is extremely weak, if not laughable. The mention is specifically of the institution of a "marriage" aspect for the Sociology class in which students "debate the impact a non-traditional marriage has on the different levels of commitment within a society." This comes after a long six-month endeavor to solidify the Human Growth and Development curriculum for our students that strictly adheres to the state law regarding marriage as legally recognized as between one man and one woman in the state of Wisconsin. What message would this send if the District would decide to approve such a club?
As for the legalities of approval versus denies, Fincke is just plain wrong. The District does not have to include a gay club as a co-curricular. For all intents and purposes, we could link just about any human behavior to Psych and Sociology, i.e., West Bend High School Sodomy Supporters. Yes, this is JUST THAT RIDICULOUS.
Write to your local school board members. Ask them to stop the madness.
