this is a paper i wrote in seventh grade
We Are Human Too
I went to the Human Rights Campaign website the other day, and I looked up the current state laws on issues concerning sexual orientation and gender identity. I noticed one about how the state deals with these types of issues in schools---or, rather, doesn’t deal with them. It stated, “Illinois law does not address school issues relating to sexual orientation or gender identity. Illinois has a general school safety provision that provides that "each student … is respected" and not "subjected to violence, threats, harassment, intimidation or otherwise confrontational or inappropriate behaviors that disrupt the educational atmosphere."
