Fla. Senate bill would outlaw school discussions of gender identity


The Florida Senate passed a bill that prohibits “classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identify” in the state’s primary schools. The Parental Rights in Education bill passed both the House and Senate along party lines. Opponents say the bill adds fuel to the American culture war that puts sexual orientation and gender identity on the line with book bans, Pride flag removals, and bills targeting LGBTQ youth. Supporters of the bill say it’s about allowing parents control of their children’s education.
