BURLINGTON - Two seniors decided to give the HCDSB an earful about the new sex education curriculum in a letter dated March 27th 2025.
The letter was received by the Directors office April 2, 2015 and appears to be in response to a questionaire sent out by trustees. It is poorly written and clearly homophobic, disrespectful, insulting and politicaly motivated. Nonetheless, Chair Jane Michael, ever the extremist Catholic and the one who is responsible for the Board's agenda and minutes decided it was a good idea to include the letter below on the last page of the full report of the April 7th, 2015 Board meeting. The letter writer and fellow extremist, Linda Jachymek, seems to have a history of complaining about teachers participating in gay pride parades, abortion funding and the chemical abortion pill which she thinks is tied to Nazi death camps.
Most people would agree that letters like this should not be published due to there homophobic comments. For the Chair to decide to publicly include this in the full meeting report is telling and reflects poorly on her and the other trustees. Perhaps Jane is unaware there are gay students and that fellow trustee Paul Marai is gay.

Jane, next time ask for advice from the Board's numerous communications people before doing something so obviously wrong and insulting.
