To Bar A Gay-Straight Alliance, New Mexico School Board Nixes All Extra-Curricular Clubs

Via News Last night, the Clovis, New Mexico school board voted unanimously to ban all extra-curricular clubs during school hours on campus. Students at Clovis High School attended the school board meeting in support of starting a local Gay-Straight Alliance on campus.
Clovis High School student Steven De Los Santos spoke at the Clovis School Board Meeting last night about why a Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) was needed, saying that the club is important for the community.
The ban now removes all non-extracurricular clubs during the school day and limits some clubs if approved by school administrators to meet only before or after school if space is available. This ban will affect clubs such as the Chess Club, Boy Scouts, DECA, Band and other groups that currently meet on campus.
