Catholic School Opens No-Cursing Pledge To Boys
A New Jersey Catholic high school criticized as sexist when it asked only its female students to take a pledge to stop cursing has let boys join in.
The coed Queen of Peace High School in North Arlington gave the clean-language oath to some boys on Monday.
The school made news last week when many of its female students swore they would not swear. But the school-sponsored campaign left out boys.
The Record reports that school officials won’t say how many boys agreed to clean up their language.
Unlike the girls’ ceremony, the swearing-in for boys was closed to the media.
