Bullying should be prohibited for any reason. Everyone has been made in the image of God and, therefore, violence, persecution, or harassment towards another person is never acceptable.
Unfortunately, the West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) capitalized upon a 100 word change by the state legislature to create over 70 pages of regulations – many of which were expressly rejected by the WV Legislature earlier this year! As a result, parental rights have been undermined and student religious liberty – at school and even at church – has been compromised.
Families in West Virginia have until November 8 to offer their public comments urging the West Virginia Board of Education to REJECT Proposed Policy 4373. You can use the form below (refresh browser if no form is visible) to register your comment or visit one of the websites for more information.
