The Belleville News-Democrat has an editorial today juxtaposing the unique educational approach at Ellis school in Round Lake, and the fight for the freedom to marry for same-sex couples in Illinois. Ellis school started forming younger and older students, along with teachers, to form "families" that can support each other throughout the school year. The editorial goes on to pose the question: "who gets to define 'family?'"
Should the state require fertility tests or ask people to drop their drawers before issuing marriage licenses? Should the state define a family?
If so, maybe there's a cease and desist order in Ellis Elementary's future.
