Currently, under No Child Left Behind, all public schools are required to lend their facilities to, among other associations, the Boy Scouts of America.
The Boy Scouts discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation and religion and should not be permitted to use publicly funded facilities.
Tell President Obama and your representatives that discrimination in public schools in unacceptable!
I'm writing you to ask that you work to remove section 9525 of No Child Left Behind. This section requires public schools to allow discriminatory associations like the Boy Scouts of America to use their facilities. Not only is this a blatant violation of the equal protection and due process clauses of the 14th amendment, but it's blatantly outrageous. The Boy Scouts of America discriminate on the basis of religion and sexual orientation, and do not belong in a place of equal opportunity, like public schools.
I ask that you work with your colleagues to remove section 9525 from The No Child Left Behind Act.
