Could it happen here? A gender-less student body?

Could the insanity happening in NYC schools be foisted on students and parents of Richland 2 School District?

Read this article carefully.

Maybe this article is just a big joke. Maybe is just a branch of The Onion. And maybe it's not. Maybe this is true.

This is why, Parents, you must attend school board meetings and be involved! Don't just ship your kids off to school and think that the schools, teachers and administration will do what's best for your kids.

YOU decide what is best for them. YOU are the governors of the school district. YOU elect school board members, and YOU must watch them carefully.

The only way to know what is going on is to view the agenda before each meeting and to understand it. Read the proposed revisions to Board Policies. These are not just policies that apply to the board. Many of these are policies of the Board that will be applied to your children and to staff.

If you don't agree with something, you must speak out - effectively.

One way to do that is to gather your friends, family and neighbors and speak up at Board meetings. Don't fall for the "one speaker on a topic is enough". Every one of you should speak. If the Board calls "Time's up", tell them "No, the time is not up."
