'Lewd Gestures' Banned at School Performances

November 08, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

The Chatham County school board in Savannah voted unanimously to ban "lewd gestures" and "vulgar movements" from school performances in response to complaints that some cheerleading and dance routines had become too sexy.

Board members said the policy, approved without discussion or debate, strikes a balance by answering offended parents without setting strict standards that put the board in the role of morality police.

The new policy applies to all student groups, from glee clubs to wrestling teams, in prohibiting "lewd gestures, inappropriate comments, foul language and suggestive or vulgar movements" at school functions.
