It is a sad state we have come to when school policy derives solely from ideology and not from practical need.
Here the writer notes:
- “Virginia already had laws and policies to address [bullying, including transgender bullying].”
- “Neither we nor the state nor those who sponsored and voted for the 2020 Virginia law knows how often transgender kids were bullied, but we know it was seldom.”
- The sponsors of the new law “felt we needed it anyway.”
That’s no way to run a commonwealth. Surely the legislature has better things to do, such as preventing the increase in electrical bills to be caused by Dominion Power’s wind turbine project.
