Anoka-Hennepin school board

Hate group member appointed to school's anti-bullying task force

The Anoka-Hennepin School Board, whose district recently settled two lawsuits alleging that a former policy had contributed to a hostile environment toward LGBT students and those perceived as LGBT, has appointed a member of an anti-gay organization to join the district’s new Anti-Bullying, Anti-Harassment Task Force.
