HB1332 by Rep. John Ragan is the House companion bill to Sen. Stacey Campfield's Don't Say Gay bill, which he has renamed the Classroom Protection Act.  This bill would harm students by breaking trust and confidentiality.

Letter to
State Representative Rep. John Ragan
Please, withdraw House Bill 1332. This bill is a solution in search of a problem and it actually creates problems by making counselors and school personnel break confidentiality. The bill intrudes into the confidentiality and trust that should exist between students and counselors and other school personnel. It is not endorsed by any educational or counseling organization. Students need a safe, confidential space in which to discuss matters important to them.

Please, reconsider your sponsorship of this bill.
