Alberta school boards association refuses to discuss transgender issues
Edmonton public and Catholic boards voted in favour of motion
The Alberta School Boards Association has rejected the Edmonton public school board's motion to put transgender policy on the agenda for debate.
The motion was rejected Monday at the ASBA's fall general meeting in Edmonton.; 66 per cent is required to pass a motion.
Edmonton's public and Catholic school boards voted in favour of putting the item on the agenda. Calgary's Catholic board voted against the motion. Neither board from Lloydminster cast a ballot.
It was not immediately clear why the motion was rejected.
