A gender identity information session is sparking controversy in the Cambridge School District.
According to the Post-Star, a school health teacher has been suspended with pay, and a presentation on gender issues by a staff member from the Pride Center of the Capital Region has been called off.
Some parents say the handouts were too in-depth and inappropriate for younger children. On the other hand, the Pride Center says the information contained in the packet is vital, lifesaving knowledge, and has been taught in other Capital Region schools.
CEO Martha Harvey is quoted as saying that if a parent has a problem with the presentation, that's the parent's problem.
