School should stick to basics

If SOGI is allowed in classrooms, so should Christianity

I have been watching what shows up in the newspaper and TV over this SOGI issue that is supposed to be introduced into our school teaching procedures and policies.

I am a parent, and grandparent with elementary school grandkids with a homosexual cousin in my family of origin. Him and I were close friends and collectively worked on family history genology for many years. My point is; I have no negative attitudes toward gay people on any level whatsoever.

Now onto my attitude about SOGI being introduced into the school system. I believe the school is to be focused on the basic foundation of reading, writing, arithmetic, and physical development. I believe the school trustees have absolutely no authority, on any level, to bring any outside social issue of any description into the classroom.

If you are in disagreement with my attitude, then the school board should bring Christianity back into the classroom and start the day with the Lords prayer. If the outside social issue of Christianity is banned from the classroom, so should SOGI be banned out of the classroom. If SOGI comes in and Christianity is kept out, this school board will be, in my opinion, be taking on the position of a two-sided hypocrite.
