SR: CSD Should OK LGBT Protections

The city of Coeur d’Alene passed an ordinance that protects lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered residents from discrimination, and now a citizen is asking the Coeur d’Alene School District to do the same. Susan Moss, an attorney and parent, is concerned that because the district is a division of state government, the city’s anti-discrimination ordinance may not apply to students and employees. The school board has asked its legal staff to look into the matter, and it’s possible that the district may end up tackling this issue. If it does, there will be plenty of time for public input. The district should pass an equality policy regardless of the legal finding because the city’s ordinance could always be overturned/Spokesman-Review Editorial Board. More here.
