Not curricular

The U.S. Court of Appeals has, for the second time, ruled against Osseo (MN) Area Schools, which does not want to recognize the student group SAGE (Straights and Gays for Equality) at Maple Grove High School.

According to the article, Osseo and MGHS do not want to provide the group with the same privileges as other student groups because it is not "curricular", unlike the synchronized swimming team, and the pep squad. To be clear, those "privileges" include use of the PA system and permission to poster the school--no funding is at stake here.

The Court ruled correctly again. Time to wake up.
