MPR News reporter Elizabeth Dunbar adds this to her reporting this morning on the Anoka-Hennepin district's plan to replace its "neutrality" policy on student sexual orientation.
School Board Chairman Tom Heidemann described the proposed changes as "a little bit of cleanup" to address concerns about confusion. He echoed Johnson's contention that the changes came about through feedback from teachers who said they were confused about the implications of the sexual orientation curriculum policy.
"It's something we've been thinking about for some time," he said. "It's really our goal for there to be no confusion."
The changes to the harassment policy are modeled after one recommended by the Minnesota School Boards Association, Heidemann said.
