An Alabama lawmaker has proposed lifting a ban on yoga in public schools. Democratic state Rep. Jeremy Gray wants to repeal a 1993 law that called yoga a “Hindu philosophy” and barred it. Yoga, Gray insists, is “a great way to work on your posture, flexibility, and balance and to strengthen your core.” To mollify opponents, his bill requires that yoga be taught with English terminology.
A Louisiana high school has backed off its demand that all prom dresses be approved in advance. Dr. Kim Pendleton, principal of Southwood High School in Shreveport, asked for photos of all proposed female prom attire, warning that only “wholesome” dresses that do not show “excess cleavage” would be permitted. The school district canceled the policy after public pushback.
