School 'forces LGBT+ students to read the bible' as punishment

A school in rural Oregon has come under intense criticism after it reportedly forced an LGBT+ student to read the Bible because of their sexuality.

The actions of the school, which resides in The North Bend School District, was first reported by The Coos Bay World and then later picked up by The Oregonian.

The accusations came from a letter issued in March to Bill Yester, the school superintendent for the district, which claimed that 'discrimination on the basis of sex and sexual orientation' had occurred.
--------
Yet the letter issued to Bill Yester said the evidence of discrimination against LGBT+ students was 'substantial.'

Student 3 had little choice but to comply with the building administratorís established form of punishment.

There is substantial evidence to support the allegation that the district subjected LGBT+ students to separate or different rules of behaviour, sanctions, or other treatment.
