After weeks of outrage, the Principal at the SAUSD’s Willard Elementary, Dennis Cole, was directed to cancel the Bible/Prayer clubs he had been promoting at his school. Many teachers and other community activists were outraged by Cole’s actions with regard to those activities as he appeared to be mixing religion with the public school environment – far beyond what the law allows.
Cole canceled the clubs in question, but he apparently did not stop there. He canceled ALL the student clubs at his school!
Here is what one commenter, at the Orange Juice blog’s long-running SAUSD thread, had to say about this latest development:
Dennis Cole is a vindictive evil individual! Had no reason to cancel all clubs. He was directed to terminate his bible club, that was it. He took it upon himself to cancel and get rid of the other clubs on his own.
Cole is a person who can not and will not accept positive or constructive criticism. If it did not come from him, it is not a good idea and its not happening.
And here is more information about Cole’s actions, from another commenter:
