I am the parent of a 5th grader and my best friend happens to be gay. I still agree with polishkatie. It is not the place for any education professional to express personal strife. Whether the child was sent by the parent is irrelevant. Opinions, personal or political, should remain outside of the classroom. It is the job of the educators to encourage individual thinking. Their influence should come from questions that make children think, not from stress from topics they don’t understand. This is a subject most adults struggle to understand. How can anyone expect a child to be able to form opinions on it is just crazy. Sorry, but a simple “no” would have been sufficient.
