State Board Urged To Reverse Changes To Non-Discrimination Rule, Add Protection For Sexual Orientation

The State Board of Education on Tuesday heard requests to add "sexual orientation" to school anti-discrimination rules affecting employees.

The testimony followed Monday's vote by the board's Operating Standards Committee to eliminate the delineated list of items - such as race, gender, religion - that an employer cannot use for hiring decisions. The panel instead opted to require schools to follow state and federal laws on discrimination.
