Decatur Parents Debate Over Transgender School Policy

Nov 2, 2017

A debate is unfolding in City of Decatur schools about transgender rights. At a September school board meeting, a parents’ group criticized a policy protecting transgender students in Decatur. Those parents have launched a petition to rescind the policy, put in place by Superintendent David Dude last year. Vernadette Broyles is an attorney representing the parents in the petition. She brings us a commentary explaining their perspective. Then we hear from Linda Ellis, Executive Director of the Health Initiative, an LGBT advocacy group. She brings us a commentary on why those protections should stay in place.
