Brenda Haynes, the Sheridan School District Superintendent, once more commenting on the Taylor Ellis story — see my post HERE:
“We must make decisions that lead in the proper direction for all of our students and for our community. We must not make decisions based on demands by any special interest group. The seven profiles will not be published in the yearbook ... It is clear that the adults who have the responsibility for the operation of the district have the obligation to make decisions which are consistent with the mission of our school. We have done so."
I guess the “proper direction” is not gay.
I guess there was no “special interest group” that demanded the gay profile be excised from the yearbook.
The “adults” make the decision that no one, no one, should read a coming out story.
