Glee Spreads Across the Globe

The FOX hit TV series Glee showcases the plight of the glee club. The fictional students at William McKinley High have endured budget cuts and fierce competition with other clubs.

But now, they're sparking a new desire for such clubs. In the U.K., York High School students have banded together to make a community-based afterschool Glee Club. The leader will be Steven McLean, a community youth coach. He said: "It is a great opportunity for the children to be involved in something they are interested in, as well as it being a way to make new friends and stage a performance at the end of the eight weeks."
