Um, what? Tennessee considering Don't Say Gay bill for K-8 schools

 
Lawmakers in Tennessee are reconsidering a piece of legislation from last year that has been nicknamed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. If passed, it would prohibit teachers from discussing any sexuality other than heterosexuality with students with kindergarten through eighth grade.

 

 

More worrisome than this quasi gag order is a new provision, which would require school officials to contact parents if their child is gay. Students would still be able to discuss sexuality with counselors, nurses and principals, but these authorities would need to notify parents as soon as they thought the circumstances required “intervention.”

 

While the wording offers some leeway, we think the entire situation is troubling. What do you think?
