GLBT Protection from Bullying in Schools

| No Comments

Dispute over a Sexual Orientation Curriculum Policy and anti-bullying has taken priority in the Anoka-Hennepin district.

Six students have filed suit against Minnesota's largest school system and charging for "failing to address the persistence and widespread harassment of GLBT students," Lacrosse Tribune said.

The Sexual Orientation Curriculum policy allows teachers to discuss issues involving sexual orientation but requires of them to stay neutral and does not "shield" gay and lesbian students from being bullied by their sexuality, Star Tribune said.

Schools in other states like California have implemented a new law that includes teaching about GLBT Americans in social studies whereas in Tennessee, a law dubbed "don't say gay" bill is being considered for teachers to not discuss homosexuality with middle school and elementary students, Lacrosse Tribune also said.
