Anti-gay-bashing Curriculum Gets Scrapped

December 11, 2009
For about five seconds, the San Francisco Bay area, epicenter of all things progressive and good in the world, had a pretty cool 45-minute gay-friendly lesson plan on the curriculum. It was to be taught to students of every grade from kindergarten up, in elementary schools, in an effort to curtail anti-gay bullying and harassment while kids are still young enough to learn not to be bigots. Well, shocker-it's been nixed. Because parents sued the Alameda school board, and won.It's being replaced by a more broad anti-discrimination class.Image via
