I came across a news item today that needs to be talked about. The city school board in Dothan, AL, just passed a few measures regarding cheerleading tryouts in the district’s schools. In this list of regulations is the prohibition of stunts and tumbling.
These measures were taken, according to the Dothan Eagle, “because of concerns about fair access and minority representation. The law prohibits the Dothan City School Board from setting racial quotas for its cheerleading squads, so the board has taken action in the past to broaden the potential pool of applicants for spots on its cheering squads.”
Diversity is important, but would a school board prohibit football players from tackling or volleyball players from spiking the ball? Read the list of regulations HERE, then let us know what you think. COMMENT BELOW!
