Revision to Model Policy

The VDOE Must revise their model policy requirements to specifically state that this policy should not be used for the exclusive purpose of preventing access to materials or removal of materials solely based off of LGBTQ themes, characters or content.  We can’t allow school boards to Weaponize this model guidance to engage in homophobia.
