Our public schools do not have the right to “help” a student explore their gender/sexual identity. These guidelines present a gender ideology that will promote a totally false view of sexuality to young children. In addition, it discriminates against all “normal” children. If there are special needs they need to be handled on a case by case basis as a special need. It does not make sense to change the policy for the majority to accommodate the needs of a small minority. These special needs should and can be adequately cared for on a case by case basis and still support their acceptance within the framework of the public school system.
