Ohio state school board could vote on anti-LGBTQ resolution on Tuesday
The full Ohio State Board of Education could vote on a resolution on Tuesday that would push back on a Biden administration anti-discrimination policy.
The board’s executive committee voted a proposed resolution out of committee on Monday that could be voted on Tuesday. This is an amended version of an earlier proposed resolution that backs Ohio anti-trans bills considered by lawmakers and Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost’s lawsuit against the Biden Administration.
Honesty for Education’s Elaine Schleiffer said the revised version is just as bad and is unnecessary.
“They talk a lot about local control but this resolution in itself is government overreach,” Schleiffer said.
Backers of the proposal said it’s needed to give schools guidance. They fear the new federal rules to Title IX would require schools to investigate claims of discrimination or risk losing federal dollars for school lunch programs.
