Model Policies Should Serve to Benefit All Students, While Accommodating Specific Concerns
Thank you for the opportunity to comment on this model policy.
The model policy is well-intentioned, but does not serve all of the students in any school. Policies need to address issues and provide solutions that treat others equally and do not cause harm.
The educational learning environment of a school is delicate and is disrupted when any one group is favored at the expense of others. The proposed solution which this policy hopes to fix causes disruption and harm to all of the other students.
A better model policy would ensure that the rights and beliefs of all persons are treated equally. This policy fails that test and should not be made a model policy.
