Committee targets furries in schools

A bill passing through the Indiana Senate would reiterate that schools are authorized to enforce dress codes and curb disruptive behavior to address concerns about students identifying as furries.

This follows a nationwide wave of claims — none proven — that students dress and act like animals in classrooms.

Indiana Sen. Jeff Raatz, R-Richmond, is the author of Senate Bill 380. The “Miscellaneous Education Matters” bill makes changes to how the state calculates high school graduation rates and also includes this line: “A school corporation may adopt a policy regarding students dress code or disruptive behavior. When introducing the bill to the Senate Education Committee, chaired by Raatz, he said it was to address concerns about students who “might imitate or act furry.”

“Essentially what this signals to school corporations is that through the dress code, you have the ability to determine how students dress,” he said.
