The recent events at Alta High school which have affected my son, the parents, faculty and students are unfortunate. What is more unfortunate is the discovery of new allegations which raise new questions. One of which is, how extensive are the issues of discrimination in all forms?
I realize some students and parents feel that the situation was blown out of proportion. Personally, I don’t feel that this is the case. A line on appropriate and inappropriate behavior needs to be drawn. I believe that Canyons School Districts investigation will determine what needs to happen. We should allow them the time to deal with the situation and make any actions they deem suitable. I give them my support and a vote of confidence.
While many people are angered that we have spoken out on this issue, many more have expressed gratitude for providing a platform where Hispanic, Jewish, African American, Caucasian, Asian, Pacific Islanders, people of different religious beliefs and sexual orientation(s), where their stories can be shared and have their voices heard.
I HOPE THAT PARENTS WILL TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO EDUCATE THEIR STUDENTS/CHILDREN TO RESPECT EVERONE REGARDLESS THEIR DIFFERENCES!!!
