Public Comments for: HB844 - High school interscholastic athletic competition; prevention of hate speech, etc.
I SUPPORT HB 844, 1023, 1026, and 1184. More comprehensive and accurate FLE curriculum is a positive development for the commonwealth. I SUPPORT HB 1184 both as a private citizen and 2nd generation immigrant as well as on behalf of my employer, Edu-Futuro, an organization that empowers immigrant families through education. Many, if not most, of the community Edu-Futuro serves speaks a language other than English, and HB 1184 would dramatically improve educational and career outcomes for the children of these communities. I OPPOSE HB 789 and 988. Transgender individual lives matter and again, FLE curriculum needs to be accurate and inclusive.
No on HB 844 - You left out hate speech etc. against persons with disabilities. Why has Virginia and especially our schools had such a war on kids with disabilities?
HB486 no more quotas. HB789 pro this. HB844, we already have procedures covering this. HB988 we have requirements on this already, so yes. Pro 1023, we need this especially in VB I know its happening so this might help kids to prevent it. Thank you.
