A West Virginia high school student is filing an injunction against her principal, who she claims is threatening to punish her for speaking out against a factually inaccurate abstinence assembly at her school.
George Washington High School recently hosted a conservative speaker, Pam Stenzelwho travels around the country to advocate an abstinence-only approach to teen sexuality. Stenzel has a long history of using inflammatory rhetoric to convince young people that they will face dire consequences for becoming sexually active.
The high school senior alleges that Aulenbacher threatened to call Wellesley College, where Campbell has been accepted to study in the fall, after she spoke to the press about her objections to the assembly. Despite being threatened, Campbell is not backing down.
With the policy at GW, under George Aulenbacher, information about birth control and sex education has been suppressed. Predictably, the states that lack adequate sex ed requirements are also the states that have the highest rates of teen pregnancy and STDs.
They plan to take up the issue at a local board of education meeting, which is scheduled for Thursday evening.
Katelyn Campbell, Wellesley is excited to welcome you this fall. Supporters across the country have rallied around Campbell after reading her story. .
