The LGBT Education Bill Has Been Signed

Written by 


The Governor of California, Jerry Brown, signed the law allowing the teaching of history LGBT in schools.

"It’s such a sound argument — this is history," said Leno, a Democrat from San Francisco, "How can you deny, pretend, or censor this history? It’s fact. You may not like it, but that’s not the point."

However, that will take time before being effective, because a statewide committee has to draft a framework for the new program of studies first and will request a public comment then. After this, the State Board of Education with the local school districts will check if the books include our history.

"Only during the regular process of the editing of our textbooks will this change occur," Leno says. "It’s a very long process that will take four to five years."
