Student Banned From Making His Valedictorian Speech Got to Deliver It on National TV

Evan Young of Longmont, Colorado was banned from making his valedictorian speech at his own graduation from Twin Peaks Charter Academy High School. He submitted a draft of the speech to administrators and then provided them a revised speech where he made all the changes they asked for but one. He had planned to come out as gay during the speech but the school would not permit him to include any references to his sexual orientation. The principal then called Young's parents about the issue, outing him without his consent in the process.

Ultimately, Young was not allowed to speak at his graduation. He did get the chance to deliver his speech after all at a fundraising event for Out Boulder, a Colorado LGBT advocacy group and on national television on The Nightly Show.

School Teacher Brought Kids to an Adult Toy Store for a Field Trip

Minneapolis teacher, Starri Hedges, is now dealing with upset parents after taking kids from middle to high school age on a field trip to a local adults-only emporium named Smitten Kitten. The store itself offers educational workshops which the students took part in from a library section of the store that was separate, but apparently in view of, the products they offer. Angry parents were not aware of the trip before it took place but since the school in question is a K-12 private school, it is unclear whether any laws were broken.

Hedges herself admitted to the Star Tribune that she "unfortunately didn't’ communicate well enough with parents ahead of time”." While that was unquestionably poor judgment, the rest of the issues surrounding the trip remain in a grey area. Investigation is ongoing to the conditions of the shop and context of the trip to determine if Hedges or the store violated any laws by bringing the students there.
