California School History Lessons To Include Gays, Lesbians

California School History Lessons To Include Gays, Lesbians

Yesterday a bill was signed in California requiring public schools to include the contributions of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans in history lessons. 

Proponents say not only will this be an accurate reflection of history for children, but it will also teach them to be accepting of gays and lesbians at a time when bullying in schools is regularly making headlines. The bill's author, Democratic State Senator Mark Leno of San Francisco, says: "We have different kinds of people, who are, under law, to be treated equally. Why would we not want to teach our children this?"

Some critics argue that it is a "gay agenda" rather than an anti-bullying measure, and that parents should remove their children from public schools in response.
