The Conway College Board and its superintendent have been at it once more. The board had a coaching session scheduled for Oct. 26 however canceled it. I’ve requested the college district why the session was canceled, however haven’t but heard again.
In response to an April 8 article in the Dallas Morning News, Eichelbaum, an lawyer for the Irving, Texas college district, staunchly defended the pressured removing of rainbow stickers from a instructor’s classroom door. In March, the Irving college board upheld the ban on rainbow stickers.
“These stickers are a part of a private agenda,” Eichelbaum stated on the assembly, in line with the Morning Information. “They’re giving the improper impression — they could be endangering college students.”
Additional, the instructor who was pressured to take away rainbow stickers supporting homosexual and transgender rights stated the district was terminating her contract, the paper reported.
LGBQT college students stated they’ve since been referred to as homophobic slurs and bullied with college workers members failing to intervene, the newspaper stated, citing a report on NBC Nationwide Information.
Eichelbaum’s web site lists “Transgender: A Quick Evolving Authorized Drama” amongst his shows and publications. I’ve not been in a position discover its content material on-line, although.
Will the Conway College Board take its classes from a Texas lawyer who didn’t appear fearful about trans college students being endangered? I hope not, nevertheless it already has an anti-trans agenda.
First, the board permitted a coverage saying college students and adults had to make use of the restroom assigned to the gender on their start certificates or request entry to a single-use restroom. In fact, the college doesn’t have single-use restrooms in some buildings. The board additionally permitted an identical coverage coping with in a single day lodging throughout college journeys. And it ordered two books about transgender youths eliminated the college’s library cabinets.
With lawsuits potential, I can see why the Conway College Board and its enabling superintendent, Jeff Collum, would possibly need some authorized — and political — recommendation from somebody like Eichelbaum.
