There is a Better Way
We believe there is a better way then the one presented to the State of Michigan Board of Education that is summarized in the Board’s memo on February 23, 2016 and will be voted on May 10, 2016. The issues facing our nation and our country are serious ones. For those in the LGBTQ community, these issues are greater and need better solutions than those presented in the memo. We believe the direction laid out in this plan in it’s entirety, has not proven in other states to meet the goals of the State Board of Education (SBE) nor the Michigan Department of Education (MDE). We believe there is a better way. The first step is to have this proposal stopped and the concerns of the LGBTQ community viewed with objectivity versus just putting things in place and hoping for the best.
