The principal of a school banned a fifth-grader from reading his entry in a school-wide speech contest after he had won his class contest. Why? Because his speech supported same sex marriage.
This case received widespread publicity and his short speech has appeared on YouTube.
Too bad more adults are not as mature as this 10-year old.
The Chancellor of the New York city schools then stepped in and overrode the principal and ordered that the speech be allowed.
I suspect that the children in the school audience would have had no trouble at all with his speech. It is the adults who freak out, and the principal’s decision was likely prompted by fears that outraged bigoted parents would come down on his head for allowing their children’s ears to be sullied with such dangerous ideas.
