>Missouri Students Cram School Board Meeting to Advocate for Adding Sexual Orientation to Non-Discrimination Policy
>When hundreds of high school students show up to attend an evening school board meeting, they have something on their minds. For students at Kirkwood High School in Kirkwood, Mo., it was the widely visible mistreatment of their peers that packed them into their school gymnasium Monday night with 940 student signatures in support of adding sexual orientation to the district’s non-discrimination policy.
While the school board won’t vote on this policy change until May, Andy Gaglio, co-president of his GSA, believes the irrefutable display of student support speaks for itself.
You can’t end discrimination with two words, but you can really show we will not stand for this.
