Do you think it should be a parent’s choice if their child can join a GSA? or a student’s choice?

October 15, 2021

I support the policies which the Lethbridge school division currently has on this question  (policies 502.1 and 502.2 in particular). These policies strive to provide “a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment that respects diversity and fosters a sense of belonging” within “an atmosphere of mutual respect and appreciation for individual differences” for all students and families. These policies allow for the creation of GSAs with appropriate adult/teacher supervision and respect the confidentiality of the student. I hope and encourage all parents to be involved and supportive of their children and their school activities.
