Her graduation speech called for equality. Administrators said it was too controversial.  (Wausau Daily Herald, 6/14/2018)
Administrators reviewed a written version of her speech, Christenson said, and then told her she could not talk specifically about topics such as discrimination, gender inequality and school shootings. They prevented the discussion of those topics out of fear that they would provoke disagreement and judgment, and that others might feel attacked, according to Christenson.
