Stop LGBT Discrimination and Political Bias in Alabama Public School

This petition had 738 supporters

My name is Julia Coccaro. I'm 17 years old and a rising senior at Spanish Fort High School in Alabama.

Spanish Fort High School is:

  • Allowing politically biased assignments that indoctrinate students
  • Censoring the mention of "coming out" in a student's quote in the yearbook
  • Presenting religious and political ideologies during class time
  • Prohibiting discussion of LGBT-related issues during meetings of the Democrats Club

These blatant violations of policy and student rights have been systematic for years and have been constantly ignored.

I am calling for the investigation of these violations, closer monitoring of curriculum, and mandatory training in objectivity, student rights, sensitivity, and First Amendment rights for all teachers in the Baldwin County Public School System.

Please stand with us to demand immediate action!

The full complaint, as well as the proposed remedies, can be found here.

The biased reading assignment can be found here.
