This mess is the legacy of the Boyd Applegarth years, where Boyd's Mormon religion was the basis for how the district has been run.
Much revered by conservative, homophobic "nuclear families," Boyd managed to spout all of the correct platitudes about diversity and inclusiveness while catering to the white, religious families in the district.
It's an attitude that still prevails to this day. The composition of the district's patrons has changed, yet it still acts as though Ward, June, Wally, and The Beav are its primary (and preferred) customers.
It would be wonderful to hear from the likes of Tom Ptacek and Gretta Grimala, gay and lesbian administrators in the district. Or should we interpret their complicit silence to be an act of enablement?
