Charleston County School District

Remove Chick-fil-A from the lunch room

Wando students are the future. We are incredibly diverse and talented, we all have dreams and want to go places, and we have the ability to do so. We need a school that supports us, that encourages us to do the things in our life that we are destined to do. Offering Chick-fil-A in our lunch room does the opposite of support, it hold us back. Chick-fil-A spends millions of it's dollars to keep non-heterosexual students from reaching that future. By keeping Chick-fil-A in our school, Wando is sending the wrong kind of message to it's students, it is saying that it supports and encourages Chick-fil-A's actions. We need Chick-fil-A out of our school, so that a constant reminder of hate is not hanging above the heads of the Wando student body. We need a positive school, a progressive school, a school that supports only those that make us better.

      This is a new article posted on the Huffington Post that points on why this is not an issue of free speech or the first amendment. It has a lot of great information for those still on the fence on the issue.

      I believe in equality for all. I wouldn't want to go to, support, or affiliate myself with a school that does not support and believe in every single one of their students.

      I am a gay man who went to Wando High School decades ago. These students are going through similar struggles that I went through in high school. My only hope is that they are able to learn and grow in an environment that gives them the respect and dignity they deserve.

      I do not approve of the money that chick-fil-a is funding their cause.

      High school is hard enough, isn't it? Why should we alienate students from both others and themselves by publicly supporting a corporation with discriminatory values?

      My grandchildren attend this school district and I want them to grow up with acceptance of all types of people.
