this is my friend Sam and I, we go to a private boarding school in lake Tahoe, California. Sam is pan-sexual (liking anybody he has a deep connection with) and myself, well i am a bit confused of who i am at the moment. last night our school had a formal dinner, I asked Sam to be my date a week ago,he said yes! the night of the formal dinner Sam asked our assistant headmaster if he could wear a dress, he said no before he had even finished the question. when Sam and i showed up to the dinner we were holding hands and i was also holding the roses Sam had gave to me. Sam was wearing mascara and lipstick. our assistant headmaster freaked out and told Sam if he didn’t get the makeup off he would be in massive trouble. Sam and I went back to the room to get his makeup off and came back down. the whole night he was telling us how bizarre and weird we were. the night ended and the morning rose. we both have our first class of Friday with our assistant headmaster. he told the both of us if our relationship went any further he threatened he would take us behind the barn and beat us. he also told us if we were in public school we would have our dicks chopped off by other kids. after this period of being teased, Sam and i got together and thought we needed to do something about this. so here i am, Julien Nicol,15 years old, asking for your help to spread this around and have it know that California allows private schools to discriminate against people with certain sexual preferences.
california cant control private schools that much, they are kind of like churches that way. If you complained to any government official they would simply tell you that going to a private school is a choice and if you face problems there, you can always go somewhere else, or to a public school. Governments have much more control over public schools, since they control their funding. And students generally dont have a choice with public schools, its based on where you live. There are still lots of private schools who allow the educators and administrators to hit the students. If the states cant stop kids from being beat in private schools, what could they do about verbal abuse? I agree that this is wrong on many levels but I dont agree with the suggestion to blame california for what happens at a private school. What could they do? They cant pass a law saying dont verbally abuse people. They cant cut off funding because private school fund themselves. They cant take away their status as a school because I’m pretty sure education credentials are national, not decided by state. I suggest protesting whoever supplies the funding. Cash is king in education, if the people funding the school dont like the policy, they will pull funding, and the school will change to keep funding.
