As two students (Bethany Provan Kettle Moraine High School For Arts and Performance and Brit Farrar High School Of Health Sciences) that attend Kettle Moraine High school, we are outraged at this new policy. We are both a part of the LGBTQIA+ community. When walking into a classroom where we see a pride flag hanging up, we have a sense of comfort and acceptance. 

We already walk through the halls with fear. We both have experienced very hateful and homophobic comments in the halls of our high school. 

A pride flag is not a political thing, loving someone is not political. Think of all the students/kids who are scared to go home because they don't have the support of their families, but when they walk into to school and their teacher has a pride flag hanging on the wall, they finally feel safe and supported. 

Taking away this flag may seem simple to you, but it is NOT for the students. 

Pro-nouns are a part of English class. Maybe instead of banning teachers by simply saying their pro-nouns in email signs off, we actually teach students what they are. Because like it or not everyone has a pro-noun. she/her he/him are pro-nouns. You use them in everyday life. So is it a crime for our teachers to say what they would like to be referred by?

Please help out our school and the students in it. Sign this petition to make a change.
