How would the MLS board vote on this issue?


In the aftermath of Lakota school officials announcing the creation of a new department to address transgender student rights, some concerned school parents told the school board Tuesday evening to not forget about the rights of the heterosexual majority.

More than a dozen residents attended Lakota school board’s first meeting of the new year, with about half speaking against last month’s defeated proposed board policy expansion of transgender students’ rights among the district’s 16,500 enrollment.

The rejected policy, which would have in part allowed sexually self-identifying students access to opposite sex bathrooms and locker rooms, was rejected by the board, 3-2.

It was rife with logistical, legal problems and offensive to much of the non-LGBT community, some speakers said.

“While we have compassion for the LGBT community,” Lakota parent Lori Daniel told the board. “the policy is far too broad and infringes on the rights on the majority of students to feel safe and have privacy.”

“It broadly oversteps the authority of the both the district and the board and tramples parents’ rights,” said Daniel.
