what is your opinion? Your child(ren)'s?
I recently came across some heated discussion on this issue and it seems to be a huge problem with some parents while my daughter and her school mates are for the program. I would like to hear your opinions.

I wasn't familiar with Safe Schools Coalition so I Googled it and found:
Safe Schools Coalition Australia is a national network of organisations working with schools to create safer and more inclusive environments for same sex attracted, intersex and gender diverse students, staff and families.
I then went to my son's school website to see if I could find any reference to it, but nothing came up.
I'm in favour of the initiative and would support it if it was introduced at my son's school. Isn't it a good thing to hear about a program to support and protect members of our schools community who have always been marginalised and have often been bullied, afraid, and excluded?
I think it's great your daughter and her friends support it. I'm going to email our school and see what their plans are. Thanks for mentioning it @readthemanual.

Here's the press release ReachOut put out about the Safe Schools project back in February: ReachOut supports Safe Schools Coalition to stop bullying and help young people feel safer at school
