Bullying policy puts us at risk

We, as parents and taxpayers, have been made aware of the hastily passed Surrey School District regulation 9410.2: “Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity.”

Under the guise of bullying, this is a misuse of public schools to propagandize a particular viewpoint without regard for wishes of parents.

Parental rights are being violated. The UN Declaration of Human Rights states: “Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.”

“Safe and Caring Schools” will hardly be safe, as children from homes with traditional values may then be subjected to bullying as a result of this one-sided policy.

Google “Center for Disease Control” to see the high risks of an unhealthy lifestyle being promoted by this curriculum.

Why are the medical side-effects not being taught as well?

This is “safe and caring”?
