LF Addington Middle School, Wise VA: Don't Foster Homophobia

To be delivered to Wise County Public Schools

Petition Statement

This petition is to ensure"Addie On The Inside" is kept in LF Addington Middle School library for all students to read if they like and not have the views of some dictate the education of all.
There are currently 376 signatures. NEW goal - We need 400 signatures!

Petition Background

As a Wise County resident, I was extremely upset that there is a petition to have this book removed from the school's library. This type of suppression of anything having to do with homosexuality does nothing but foster homophobia and bullying against LGBT students in our local schools. A parent or even group of parents should not be able to dictate what everyone's child has the opportunity to read now and in the future. They certainly don't get to decide what's "immoral". Please protect all of our students from this type of suppression because of the inability of some parents to maturely handle such matters.
