Recently a new policy was introduced by the district stating that all schools will only have one color for graduation. This policy was put in for the sole fact that there are transgender students in the system. The district wants all students to feel and comfortable at school so this is their way of helping us.

In my opinion I think the whole thing is stupid. The district claims that they want to support us but they won’t let us choose the color gown we want. I think that it makes more sense to let us choose the color we want. If there is someone who wants a specific color because of their gender they should let them choose to get that color. It feels more like they are pushing away the students and hiding them away rather than “supporting” them.

The problem with our district is they don’t deal with controversial things. They push it away because they don’t agree and hide it away so they don’t have to deal with it. Another thing that could have helped was if they asked the students opinion on it. If it was half and half then I could understand where they are coming from but this was a decision made on their behalf.

Most seniors have talked about this topic in class and the majority believe that we should be able to choose what color gown we get. I agree with them because not only will it give people their freedom of choice but we’re paying for the gown. With them doing this, they aren’t supporting us. They are just hiding the issue and making it harder for students to feel more comfortable about themselves. But aside everything, this is just one opinion out of many.
