Outcome

Play produced in the evening only so parents had the opportunity to attend

Abstract

The Central School Board voted unanimously to allow a middle school production of "We're All in This Together", a series of monologues which highlight issues confronted by teens. Parents had objected to the play for being "vile, immoral, and distinctly decadent." The board required performances be held in the evening only, at the recommendation of Superintendent John Cracon, so parents might attend with their children. This story was reported originally in the February 9th edition of The Dallas Itemizer-Observer.
