Discussion on proposed LGBTQ policy at 50:46

On February 23, 2016, the Michigan State Board of Education (“SBE”) presented its Statement and Guidance on Safe and Supportive learning Environments for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) Students.  SBE purports this was prepared out of its commitment to reducing the impact of high-risk factors and providing equitable resources and access to quality educational opportunities to meet the needs of all students.

To this end, SBE states students should be treated equally, fairly, and be protected from discrimination based on their real or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.  Public comment on this Statement and Guidance is open for only six weeks, opportunity to comment ends April 11, 2016.  SBE expects to approve this on May 10, 2016.

    David Eggan Alberta minister of education says it’s ridiculous to think trans will endanger girls/women in washrooms. All systems go for any male who ‘feels’ like a woman. http://edmontonjournal.com/news/politics/new-resource-will-help-alberta-schools-create-healthy-environment-for-lgbtq-community

      Are you an #LGBTQ or gender non conforming person age 14-24? If so take the “what’s your issue?” survey: http://www.WhatsYourIssue.org

      Some Lesbians need to respond.
