An EAGnews.org producer who attended the events interviewed Dean of Students Grace Moody, asking how such activities prepare students for higher education.

Moody explained that Social Justice Week came about after a botched “Gender Bender Day,” held during Spirit Week in the fall. On that day, boys could dress like girls and vice versa, with the goal being to make the school more inclusive for students who struggle with their gender identity.

It backfired, resulting in the identity-questioning students feeling ridiculed. School leaders decided a full-blown Social Justice Week was warranted. Moody thought the school could handle it because Jones College Prep is “pretty hip and pretty progressive and pretty open-minded.”
