New Mexico high school proposes blanket ban on school clubs in response to gay/straight alliance
Clovis High School (Clovis, N.M.) tonight will vote on a blanket ban on student organizations in order to be able to ban the gay/straight alliance without facing discrimination lawsuit. The Albuquerque Journal (click on the "free trial" link in the paywall to view the full article) reports (via Washington Independent):

The chess and key clubs, Future Farmers of America, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and other student clubs at Clovis High School likely would be dissolved under a proposed policy that some say is really targeted at a student gay-straight alliance.

The Clovis school board is scheduled to vote Tuesday on the policy, which would eliminate all noncurricular clubs and activities at Clovis High.

The American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico contends the change is under consideration as a way to prevent the alliance from forming.


If their goal is to uphold homophobia, then this kind of desperation will backfire.

2. Deliberate Morons!
They know this will bring down even more extensive bullying and ostracism on their GLBT students. Why do people act so stupidly.
