At Tuesdays Montezuma RE 1 School Board meeting, Parents concerns about transgender children in the bathrooms was only briefly talked about. Parents have contacted the school officials because of the concerns they have. Parents have had their children express being uncomfortable during school as transgender children use the school bathrooms.
Everywhere these days the rights and protection of transgenders, seems to speak over the rights of others. While we all agree that all children should be protected and kept safe the children who do not fit in the description of transgender/gay seem to be pushed under the rug. The focus should be on all children period.
Below is the video from the RE1 school board meeting Tuesday night October 19,2021. It is encouraged you listen to the entire board meeting. The time line for the discussion on the bathrooms and transgenders can be found at the 2hr 22 minute mark.
It should be noted that school board discussion on this, lasted approximately 5 minutes. In the discussion Ms. Richardson said, students who are not transgender, and who are....um I don't even know what to say.... should go to their councilors and create a safety plan.
