[The Huffington Post]

New York Fifth Grader

A New York City-based fifth grader’s pro-gay marriage speech will never be heard by his classmates after his school’s principal deemed it inappropriate.

NY1 reports that Kameron Slade, a student at PS 195 in Queens, had planned to deliver the speech for a schoolwide competition. After winning a class competition, Kameron reportedly worked on the speech with his mother and teacher.

Update on June 15 at 5:05pm: Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott says Kameron Slade will be allowed to give his speech during a special assembly of 5th graders taking place on Monday. The principal in question will reach to the parents of the fifth grader’s classmates to inform them of the content of the speech.
