MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The highly debated Anoka-Hennepin sexual orientation policy will come to a vote Monday night.

The school board will take a vote on the “Respectful Learning Environment-Curriculum Policy” during its meeting at 6:30 p.m.

The proposed policy states it is not the school district’s role to take positions on political, religious, social or economic issues.

“Teachers and educational support staff shall not attempt in the course of their professional duties to persuade students to adopt or reject any particular viewpoint with respect to these issues,” the policy states.

In discussion of those issues, the policy states, “district staff shall affirm the dignity and selfworth of all students, regardless of their race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex/gender, marital status, disability, status with regard to public assistance, sexual orientation, age, family care leave status or veteran status.”

The school board will vote on the issue Monday.

    Oh Kevin. You can not be serious! The school board knows best! Now you just go back to sleep! They make the rules that guide your children, why would you want to have parents involved?

    I just read that the morons at the Forest Lake school district now have a Spanish Immulsion school.

    1. Revert says:

    Kathy, why are you so dense? My daughter is a kindergartner who is fluent at 5 due to that program and doing great, better than her cousins who are in regular school. Stop being close minded.

  6. Paul says:

    I also hope the school district finally end the madness that has been happening the last 3 years in the AH SD. To many horrible stories of kids being beat up and called names openly in the halls.

  7. Paul says:

    Bill, The best part about america Is I get to choose where my daughter is educated. Spanish immersion kids are doing better than their counterparts. Most countries that are now beating us in education teach kids 3-4 languages. I know you’re against change and afraid of what you dont understand. Just remember this will open up Jobs for my kid that you’re child will not have.

    1. John says:

      Thats the type of intelligence I could expect from a kid who is close minded.

    The gay agenda is alive and thriving.

    Your children WILL be encouraged to be gay.

    1. Timmy! says:

      Lions and tigers and bears…oh my! Get a grip Jimmy and lay off the dope my paranoid friend.

    2. aeiou says:

      Jimmy, would you please send me a copy of the “gay agenda”? As a gay man, I seem to have lost mine in the mail. Or maybe my recruiter just forgot. Then again, how did you get yours?

  9. Be Dover says:

    Face it folks, You cant fix stupid

  10. Christine says:

    Wow, As a mother of 4 children this discussion scares me. To those of you who can’t see past yourself I suggest you start. All children in our schools regardless of their sexual orientation, race or religion deserve the support of their teachers and peers.
