What’s the Worst that can Happen?

One of the Alberta Principal Quality Standards is, “Understanding and Responding to the Larger Societal Context”. It would seem to me that the onus is on every principal in Alberta whether in a Public or Catholic school, to spend time considering the impact of GSAs in our schools. I have been following the debate since the beginning have been baffled by some of the dialogue (but usually monologue) that has been happening.

What do people think would be the outcome of a HS or middle school establishing a GSA? The only negative impact from that could be some constituents complaining? What else is there to fear? Really?

Are we afraid of students having a voice? Of them feeling supported? What?

I would really like someone to respond to this and inform me, so I can Understand the Larger Societal Context and respond appropriately.

Thanks
