Speak: Part 2, Chapter 1 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
The Ecology Club has prevailed, and defeated the Tiger mascot. In an assembly about the mascot, the students use various politically correct arguments to tear down any and all mascot suggestions. They are finally left with four options: Bees, Icebergs, Hilltoppers, and Wombats.
The subplot of the school mascot continues, full of ridiculousness and miscommunication. The options from which the students can choose may be politically correct, but they are also absurd.
