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.
