A source of division at school

To the editor:

Regarding the Public Forum letter, “Acceptance not division”— failing to support this statement is why the lawsuit was filed against Marshall Public Schools and the Middle School principal.

Students who accepted God’s definition of marriage, as the union of man and woman, were not included among the flags hung in the Middle School Cafeteria. Requests by students to remove the non-inclusive LGBTQ flag were denied, as were the addition of Christian flags on students’ lockers.

In the classrooms of our public schools, personal beliefs of all students are often not accepted or allowed to be heard.

Should lifestyle or religious beliefs be promoted over others in a public school environment?

This type of activity is a source of division, unlike the teaching of regular school subjects, and is best left in the hands of the family.
