Tenn. law would require schools to out potentially gay kids to parents1/31/2013
A Tennessee lawmaker wants to get schools involved in outing students who are or might be gay. Republican Sen. Stacey Campfield proposed legislation that would require school officials to tell a student's parents about any homosexual activity or any "immediate and urgent safety issues" related to sexuality. Senate Bill 234, also known as the "Classroom Protection Act," bans teachers from discussing sexuality before high school. And while teachers at any grade level can answer questions about the topic, they would be required to inform parents if they do so. The bill mandates reporting of any "behavior injurious to the physical or mental health and wellbeing of the student or another person." Opponents say the bill discriminates against gay and lesbian students. [Source]
