JOHNSTOWN — State law now factors into school activities

A quick thought on the Richland High School senior Kasey Caron article: It seems the school cited he cannot be named on a male ballot since his driver’s license relates he is, in fact, a female, according to state law.

How does such a law have relevance to a school election? If the law does, shouldn’t all aspects apply? In reality, those under 18, are not registered to vote in the state and should not be permitted to be listed on any ballot within the commonwealth.

I find it absolutely absurd that we have such ignorance. And that a school promotes its anti-bullying campaigns would, in lack of better wording, bully themselves to avoid conflict of a few who may disagree. And manipulate a law and its interpretation to suit their needs. Though in reality, such law, cannot even apply.
