WSU Student Government Supports Protecting Educators Regardless of Sexual Orientation
Dayton, OH – The Student Government of Wright State University has voted unanimously in favor of a resolution to officially endorse an amendment to Section 3301-35-05 (A) of the Ohio Administrative Code, proposed by Ohio Board of Education Member Stephanie Dodd. The amendment would add sexual orientation as a “protected” status, eliminating employment discrimination for teachers and others working in the field of education in Ohio.
The resolution echoes the endorsements of prominent staff members at Wright State University, which strives to promote diversity in education. President David R. Hopkins arduously supported the amendment, urging the Ohio Board of Education to help “eliminate prejudice and discrimination in schools, for both students and employees, on the basis of sexual orientation” by voting to pass the amendment. Charlotte M. Harris, Dean of the College of Education and Human Services at WSU, also showed her support. Citing national guidelines for the accreditation of teachers, Harris told BoE members that educators should reflect the increasing diversity of the student body.
Wright State University has an exceedingly diverse population of more than 18,000 students, and its Student Government represents their voices. With their resolution, Student Government affirms the views of WSU’s students, faculty, and staff that discrimination based on sexual orientation diminishes the educational experience, and the rights of everyone involved in education. With the passage of this amendment by the Board of Education, Ohio can add its voice to the growing national chorus calling for the protection of sexual orientation in civic life and civil society.
