Teaching homosexuality is no longer forbidden in Utah

Written by 

 utah homosexuality school

 

Teachers and students in Utah will finally be able to address LGBT issues at school.

It's been a while since I had not talked about it because I had no news. The legal battle began more than a year ago. Equality Utah and three students, Katy Smith-Gish, Josh Greer, and Kaiden Turkel, had filed a complaint against the State Board of Education. The trial resulted in an agreement with the State Board of Education and the Attorney General's office.

Last spring, following the trial, the Utah legislature almost unanimously abrogated the ban which prevented the promotion of homosexuality.

The State Board of Education then sent a letter to schools asking them to make sure "each student in Utah public schools receives a high-quality education free from all manner of discrimination, which can take the form of bullying, based on religion, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and gender identity."

Utah succeeds California and becomes the second state to repeal the law against the promotion of homosexuality.
