Anti-bullying legislation passes state Senate

Anti-bullying legislation passes state Senate | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it


The Michigan Senate passed legislation Wednesday that requires school districts to develop anti-bullying policies, but the father of the boy for whom the bill is named says he has strong objections to language inserted at the last minute.

One of the reforms will require school districts to have procedures in place to address bullying complaints. But the bill now also has language that says requirements don't "prohibit a statement of a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction of a school employee, school volunteer, pupil, or a pupil's parent or guardian."

Chelsea Rubio's curator insight, March 5, 7:48 AM

It is not proven that contact with a professional medical caregiver, or a caregiver of any kind, can make children gay. It is an insult to LGBT medical professionals everywhere for someone to even suggest that having contact with them can turn someone gay.
