A Utah school whose policy says girls can’t contend no to boys when asked to dance during school events is confronting backlash.
Mother Natalie Richard says the policy sends the wrong summary to the students, including her sixth-grade daughter. She even complained to the Kanesville Elementary School principal about it.
“He fundamentally just pronounced they’ve had this dance set up this way for a prolonged time and they’ve never had any concerns before,” Richard told KSTU-TV.
The Weber School District says the dance manners are opposite for any school and the district doesn’t oversee them. The dance order was meant to bring communication between students and inclusion into schools, the district said.

Many of the district’s facile schools horde Valentine’s Day dances and “participation is intentional but encouraged,” pronounced Lane Findlay, the district’s village family specialist, in a statement.
Before the dance, students accept instructions on what’s approaching of them if they wish to participate. Students have to fill out cards with the names of people they wish to dance with, and students can’t dance with the same person twice, the matter says.
“In the best seductiveness of the students, we are re-examining the procedures surrounding these dances and will make any required changes to promote a certain sourroundings where all students feel enclosed and empowered in their choices,” the matter reads.
