Kingsport School Board Grappling With Gender Identity Issue
Kingsport City School Board members want more information about a possible change concerning gender identification issues in Kingsport classrooms. A potential new police concerning that issue was pulled for discussion before a second reading was approved. Part of the text being considered states all curriculum and instructional programming implemented in the school district shall adhere to state and federal laws and shall not facilitate or engage in classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity. The board meets again later this month.
