An article in the Great Falls Tribune about the Great Falls Public School District cancelling something called ‘Rainbow Day’ during ‘Inclusion Week’ has made national news.
The article, posted on the Tribune’s Facebook page today, Monday 3/28/22, was written by the Tribune education reporter, Alisha Jordan and has subsequently appeared as a feature on the national MSN internet news feed.
Included in the piece by Jordan is the following:
‘According to flyers sent home with students, March 1 was designated as Rainbow Day to “celebrate diversity.” Kids were encouraged to wear “Rainbow Colored clothes and celebrate inclusion of everyone.”
According to sources familiar with the incident and representatives from the LGBTQ Center, GFPS dropped Rainbow Day because parents had complained that it “pushed the gay agenda.” ‘
It’s not clear in the article or from the GFPS web site whether this action was taken by the school board or by the administration.
