Paradise Valley High School wants signatures? Then FINE we will give them signatures!
Update, the preamble of the petition has been updated:
“I’d like to thank everyone for their support. I never imagined that the petition would gain so much attention. However, this whole situation has been a large misunderstanding between myself and the administration.
I never meant to shed Paradise Valley in a negative light. PV is an accepting community of diverse students and staff. I have met with my principal and this situation has been resolved.
The misunderstanding was completely on my end of things. Again, thank you all for your activism and support.”
So the requirement seems to be a case of miscommunication but, in the end the kids are getting their club, huzzah.
Paradise Valley High School thought they would be tricky. Even though its 100% illegal, the school sought to either block or delay the formation of a Secular Student’s Club by requiring a petition of support. Thankfully the school might just be dumb enough actually underestimate the internet. Silly mortals, Thou doth not know what this series of tubes can do.
Hopefully the school will get the hint. Release the kraken.
