The trip “would not be aligned” with the school's “beliefs and values,”

There is a key phrase identifying what is really wrong with this picture. See if you can determine what is wrong at the Highland Park High School in Illinois.

Illinois School Nixes Basketball Team's Trip to Arizona Over Immigration Law

Parents in Illinois are outraged over a move by a local high school to scrap its girls basketball team's trip to Arizona over the Grand Canyon State’s new immigration law.

The Highland Park High School varsity basketball team has been selling cookies for months to raise money for a tournament in Arizona..

Now, after winning their first conference title in 26 years, the girls are being denied the opportunity to play in the tournament over safety concerns and because the trip “would not be aligned” with the school's “beliefs and values,” Assistant Superintendent Suzan Hebson told the Chicago Tribune.

And now the news today? The female principle of the high school is no new comer to controversy. Seems she has a homosexual agenda that she has been promoting in the school system for several years.
