Bedford parents say surveys given to students breached trust
Several parents voiced dissatisfaction with the board and administrators for how they handled two surveys that were given to students in March, primarily one given to Ross A. Lurgio middle-schoolers asking about sexual orientation, gender identifications and sexual activity.
“There’s been a breach of trust here. That’s what the citizens are telling you. You’re here to serve the citizens of this community, not some special-interest group or some data-mining company,” Villeneuve said.
“Given the concerns that that clearly raised, once we collected the surveys back I directed the administrators at the high school to take all those identifications off the pieces of paper,” he said. “It means we don’t know the demographic results from the high school survey. We don’t know grade levels, ethnicity or gender. Given the concerns and the need to make sure of the board’s and the community’s trust, it was important to get that done.”
