‘Inclusive’ cheerleading policy sparks controversy


♪ ♪>>Martha: WHY DOES ONE PERSON HAVE TO RUIN IT FOR EVERYONE? EVERYONE SHOULD BE ALLOWED ON THE CHEERLEADING TEAM, CAN EVERYONE BE ON THE VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM? TRACE GALLAGHER EXPLAINS WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT FROM OUR WEST COAST NEWSROOM. HI, TRACE.>>HI, MARTHA. HANOVER HIGH SCHOOL IN EAST HANOVER NEW JERSEY HAS TRADITIONALLY SPLIT ITS CHEER SQUAD INTO THREE TEAMS, BLACK, WHITE AND GOLD, REPRESENTING THE TWO SCHOOLS COLORS. EVERY STUDENT WHO TRIES OUT IS PLACED ON ONE OF THOSE TEAMS AND GETS A VARSITY LETTER BUT AS FOR SKILL LEVEL, THE BLACK TEAM WAS THE HIGHEST. ONLY CHEERLEADERS WHO SCORED ABOVE 87 IN TUMBLING AND CHOREOGRAPHY WERE SELECTED. EXCEPT NOT ENOUGH STUDENTS SCORED 87 SO THE QUALIFYING SCORE WAS RANDOMLY DROPPED TO 78. THE SCHOOL SAYS “A MODIFICATION WAS MADE FOR QUALIFICATION TO THE BLACK SQUAD. THIS MODIFICATION INCREASE THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS WHO WOULD QUALIFY FOR BLACK SQUAD BASED ON THE SCORING DECISION” BUT BECAUSE SOME KIDS TOLD AND QUALIFY THE PRINCIPAL DECIDED TEAMS WOULD NO LONGER BE BASED JUNIORS AND SENIORS ON THE BLACK TEAM, FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORES ON THE WHITE AND THE GOLD THEME JUST GOES AWAY. BUT STUDENTS SAY THE CHANGE IS ONLY HAPPENING BECAUSE A PARENT WAS ANGRY THEIR DAUGHTER DIDN’T MAKE A HIGHER TEAM. SO LAST WEEK TEN CHEERLEADERS ADDRESSED THE SCHOOL BOARD. HERE’S ONE. WATCH.>>I TRIED MY HARDEST. AND EVERYTHING’S GOING AWAY, ALL BECAUSE OF ONE CHILD WHO DID NOT MAKE TEAM. AND THEIR PARENT COMPLAINT. SO NOW ALL MY HARD WORK HAS BEEN THROWN OUT THE WINDOW.>>THE BACKLASH ON SOCIAL MEDIA WAS QUICK WITH THE SCHOOL’S FACEBOOK PAGE FLOODED WITH COMMENTS LIKE I’M 52 AND LIVE IN GEORGIA, I WANT TO BE ON YOUR CHEER SQUAD AND I CAN STILL DO A CART WHEEL. WITHOUT A LOT OF BACK PAIN AND LIMPING AFTERWARDS. BUT THAT’S OKAY, RIGHT? AND “YOUR DAUGHTER DIDN’T MAKE IT BUT INSTEAD YOU HAVE RULES CHANGED TO INCLUDE HER? TELL YOUR DAUGHTER TO PRACTICE MORE” AND FINALLY, “WHY GO FOR EXCELLENCE WHEN YOU CAN JUST LITTLE LITTLE SNOWFLAKE WHINE AND CRY TO GET THE POSITION. THIS IS WHY THE COUNTRY IS GOING DOWN THE TUBES.” IF THE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION SAID THE MOVE SUPPORTS AND

  1. Another step in the direction of socialism Discouraging people from becoming their best! Have you seen the videos on how messed up these kids become later on in life as a result of this type of social indoctrination?

  2. That parent must be sleeping with someone on the school board or giving nice donations. Some schools in CA work that way, donors always get what they want.

  3. You dumb fucking school board!
    Competition produces quality!

    This school is obviously dumbfounded!

  4. there will come a day when trump is sent to prison and you trump supporters will be ridiculed to their faces wherever they go.

  5. That rule is pathetic! If one is not good enough, they are NOT GOOD ENOUGH. What is sorely wrong is the parent ENABLING her not-so-talented daughter. That parent is rearing a pitiful, whining daughter.

  6. This is the "Everybody Gets a Trophy" Generation . And Mediocrity will quickly become the New Norm .

  7. Who sucks most the crapy parents that insist on changing the rules or the little snowflakes melting away. Man watching this crap makes me ashamed of my fellow Americans. Grow a frekin' spine people.

  8. 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️Stop this Madness🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️
    People with higher skill should be placed on better team.

  9. If first you don't succeed cry cry again? That doesn't sound right.
    This woman just sent her daughter down a long and lonely path. She is gonna be bullied…forever! She gonna have to change schools.

  10. Right, because our definition of initiative and leadership is having a crybabies piss and moan until he or she gets what she wants. The school had an adequate system of meritocracy in which the best of the best get the best spots. You cannot cry your failure away, you put your time in on a lower team then you EARN your way to the top. I played football in high school. It was a long haul to get to Varsity, and it took hard work to not only make the team, but be a starter. You are not teaching kids to push theme to be the best at what they do by saying you can cry your way onto a team. As an 18 year old, my generation need to grow the hell up.

  11. So we blur the lines between good better and best? And now the worst are the best but what happens to the rest?

  12. When i was in school you could not be a cheerleader without top grades no matter how skilled or cute you were it's grades STUPID

  13. So african American are 10 stronger and more athletic then the rest of us. No secret there! Thank god the are Americans or else 0 gold medals.

  14. If kids are taught that mediocrity is ok in the face of laziness, then we are in trouble when they become whining crying adults who think that everybody should get that raise regardless of skill or effort.

  15. Lmao its cheerleader not cryleader
    In other words get good kid! Practice on the routine and not crying in the mirror

  16. hey trump wanna make america great again ? start kicking some of these parents asses thats whats wrong with this next generation. i say "financial penalties" for parents of millenials everytime…aaah nevermind this cuntree is fubar just ignore the shit and enjoy whats left of the 4th quarter hahahaha frickin national controversy over cheerleading ? seriously ? damn we suck again
    we always kicked ass in away games because we were not distracted by a bunch of spoiled yuppy bimbos

  17. The People of America have officially lost the Freaking plot and I say,… people, because, Y'all are allowing this to happen, in fact, everything the left cries about,… Its time to stand up for what you all believe in, otherwise, you're going to watch as your country falls off the edge and into a world none of you will recognise any longer.

  18. Well thats what happens when u give every one trophys …. Im going to complain to my boss today.. I dont think its fair his above me..we should be in the same level.. Wish me luck people 😭😭😭😭😭😭

  19. These people have no spines. This is why their brain function is so messed up. There's no way for the brain to communicate with the rest of the body so it just recirculates all those signals and spits out effed up thoughts all day long. They really can't help it. ❄❄❄

  20. Yeah right , try tossing a 260 lb. 5‘-8" obese 16 yr. old into the air at a football game rally … I guarantee even if you can get her into air , you won't catching her on the way back down … but hey , long as she knows what's up , hell yeah let her on the squad …

  21. In the 50s both young men and women where cheerleaders. Men wore pants and bowtie in color of the school. They had horns they cheered with.

  22. If being fit and exercising isn't a requirement for cheerleading then is a sport? Should we even have cheerleaders? Bunch of mean popular girls anyways. They don't do anything but sexualize themselves. Food.riddance. Flag line next

  23. Simple solution. Everyone should quit, and let the girl be on the squad by herself, or alienate themselves from the girl. Which is the opposite effect of what the school is trying to do. The whiny bitch, and her mommy, will be far more upset than her not making the team when nobody on the squad talks to her or makes fun of her.

  24. Wait its based off of grades? Does this mean you now have to have a 4.0 to be in the NFL, welcome to SJW Sports can't wait for the T.V. channel I can see it now Snowflakes all over the field

  25. Tucker Carlson nailed it: ok then, why exclude people from being airline pilots because they're not very good at it….

    I bet every one of those board members wouldn't go see a doctor who got his medical licence under the same pretext…….

  26. Damn raise your kids right i don’t have kids but that’s not good parenting how about “work hard this year and practice and maybe you’ll get on next year” or see if there’s anything else interesting that they want to do or let them cry it out and take them to get ice cream at some point kids have to know they can’t always have their way sometimes we’re going to get rejected and not get our way and this inclusive policy is just so dumb and setting a bad example
