CAMP Rehoboth and the CAMP Rehoboth Council of Elders have been busy since November supporting the Delaware Department of Education's proposed Regulation 225, which would support nondiscrimination efforts in Delaware public and charter schools, including based on a student's gender identity or expression. The public comment period on the proposed regulation resulted in over 11,000 comments. Many of those comments are negative, and many simply do not accept as a basic premise that a person can be transgender. The Department of Education will reconvene a meeting of its anti-discrimination development team on January 31, from 6-8 p.m. at the Del-One Conference Center on Delaware Technical Community College’s Terry Campus, 100 Campus Drive, Dover, Delaware, to discuss the public comments and determine if changes should be made to the proposed regulation. The CAMP Rehoboth Council of Elders and CAMP Rehoboth volunteers are analyzing the public comments and engaging at the local Cape Henlopen School Board level to provide education on what it means to be transgender and to help protect students against discrimination in our schools.
