According to Angelique Clark, administrators at Las Vegas’ West Career and Technical Academy have a double standard when it comes to permitting the formation of new student organization.
She explained that her request to form a pro-life group – with more than two dozen students interested in joining – was rejected, despite the operation of other potentially controversial clubs on campus. Clark explained:
The school actually already has a Gay-Straight Alliance and a Bible club and multiple other clubs, so I would have the right to have a pro-life club.
Officials cited the club’s potential divisiveness and the fact that Clark had not secured a faculty adviser as reasons for denying her request. She told Fox News, however, that the latter allegation is false:
I’ve had a faculty adviser since I submitted the application in December of 2014, and I still have a faculty adviser.
The Thomas More Society is representing Clark in a lawsuit against the school and district.
