I am absolutely opposed to the proposed policy changes! Children are not made "safer" by the schools throwing them into gender confusion that they are neither ready to handle developmentally nor even thinking about unless prompted by agenda-driven adults.
This proposed policy represents continued interference by government and school related officials with families who hold to deeply held religious values. It leaves schools in the position of being dishonest with parents and in a sense, so devaluing the role of parents, that they (the public schools) see themselves as the sole arbiter of what the student should or should not believe. This is not a position that has been granted by parents, or God Himself. Parents should not be bypassed for the sake of an agenda driven false notion of "safety." This policy presumes, in reality, that parents do not have their own children's safety at heart or that they are capable or able to direct their children to healthy decisions. This is a pompous assumption by our school administrators. This is something I would expect to see coming out of Soviet Russia, not the United States of America.
The public schools should spend more time focusing on adequately educating students in learning and how to learn as opposed to trying to reach into areas of social life with which they have no reason to participate. I am absolutely opposed to this! No! No! No!
