Florida Students Fight Back Over Don’t Say Gay Bill and Yearbook Censorship

It’s encouraging to see this happen in Florida. There is this superintendent of schools in Florida who decided to allegedly censor the school yearbook (she doesn’t believe it was censorship).

Apparently, they included photos of a school walkout in protest of the don’t say gay bill. In the photos, they were waving rainbow flags and signs that read, “love is love.” But this superintendent of schools ordered stickers to cover up the protest photos and not everyone agreed with her. 

Seminole County School Board members rejected that plan Tuesday night, voting 5-0 to order smaller stickers that don’t cover up the page’s words and pictures while explaining that the March protest over the Florida Parental Rights in Education bill outside Lyman High School was unauthorized.

Here’s more. It goes on to discuss more about the issue and it mentions the hashtag #stopthestickers on social media. These brave students spoke up and they changed something. My own dad was a superintendent of schools for many, many years and one of the issues he cared about was free speech and censorship. As far as I know, he never interfered with the content in student yearbooks. 

Here’s a link to the hashtag on Twitter where you can see the pages they didn’t want you to see.
