Former Dallastown school board member Carroll Tignall is trying to rally concerned residents to attend because he believes the district is being “covert” in promoting homosexuality, something he said is not what the majority of the community supports.
“They aren’t supposed to be interfering with parental authority,” Tignall said of the district showing a movie discussing homosexuality to students.
Tignall has been in touch with dozens of residents about the meeting, including Dallastown taxpayer Chuck Warner. Warner said homosexuality is a “choice” and is something parents should talk to children about on their own, not school officials on school property.
The editorial team at the York Dispatch recognizes a bully when they see one. Intimidating high school students showing a movie is not cool conduct for a grown man. Go argue with other adults at the School Board meeting.
Tignall ought to stay home tonight and think of a better way of expressing his opinion.
But if he’s dead set on attending the club’s screening, we hope he takes a seat and pays attention.
