Question of the Day: Should LGBT be taught in K-12?

A.J. Circhirillo

Do you believe that the state should make it mandatory to have LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) taught within the Los Angeles Unified School District? Is this an infringement on the innocence of youngsters, or a giant leap for unbiased education? What do you think?

LGBT history classes will be integrated into the LAUSD curriculum. Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill back in July called the Fair, Accurate, Inclusive, and Respectful (FAIR) Education Act, solidifying the requirement. The LAUSD has 60 days to integrate classes and information into their classes. Teachers will also be held accountable for any anti-gay bullying that might go on within their school. Students will be taught prominent individuals throughout history who were queer.
