Sarasota Schools to Provide Benefits to Children of Domestic Partners

In Sarasota, FL, School Board employees will now be able to secure health coverage for the children of their domestic partners. This pro-family approach seems to be coming at a time when the economy is putting more stress on traditional as well as non-traditional families to provide health coverage for all its members. This benefit was previously available in 2005, however the rates were prohibitively high and not one employee took advantage of the offer. The rates have recently been adjusted to make them more affordable and accessable to everyone, in an effort to have every child covered under a health plan. Many other cities in Florida provide the same type of plan to its public employees. Do you think that the remaining Florida cities will get on the bandwagon, or will certain prejudices prevent other children from getting this needed coverage?
