I don't see it as a political statement. Their argument is faulty. If their argument was that sexual orientation discussions don't belong in the classroom, that has more of a precedent. Catholic parents of the students I went to school with fought hard for us to not learn sex ed. They failed because the school board knew that sex ed would help to teach us safety. She should fight but do so on the grounds that she has to educate the LGBTQ students about the things they will experience and create a welcoming environment. I hope she wins her fight but it really will depend on what happens in the Supreme Court for the long run. It should transcend politics but in this crazy world, being Black or LGBTQ is seen an inherently political.
