The debate over whether Loudoun students should be prohibited from acting in or producing plays that explore homosexual issues took center stage again at the School Board meeting.
More than a dozen people gave their opinion Tuesday night, with the majority siding with First Amendment rights.
The School Board’s Legislative/Policy Committee plans to meet at 6:30 p.m., March 16, in the board conference room to draft a policy on dramatic productions. Committee chairman Mark Nuzzaco said Tuesday night that he would be considering the boundaries set by law. “We can’t change the law of Virginia or the United States,” he said. “We’re not a legislative body. Nor are we judges. We are an administrative body.”
