The state of Florida is considering new laws which would prohibit discussing sexuality and gender in public school classrooms from kindergarten to middle school.
The bill reads: “A school district may not encourage classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity in primary grade levels or in a manner that is not age-appropriate for students.”
It also requires schools to “adopt procedures for notifying” parents if there is a change in their children’s welfare.
The bill’s sponsor, State Representative Joe Harding said it focuses on giving parents more protections on how they raise their children.
The American Family Association backs the proposed laws.
It told Charisma News they make it clear that parents, not schools, are in charge of when and how students learn about sensitive topics.
