Equal Access Means Equal.
Dowling-Sendor, Benjamin
American School Board Journal, v187 n7 p22-23,60 Jul 2000
Pressured by religious conservatives, Congress passed the Equal Access Act (1984), allowing secondary school students the right to form on-campus extracurricular religious and other clubs. Recently, a Gay-Straight Alliance Club at a southern California high school was granted court protection under this statute, despite the community's objections. (MLH)
