The states determine what curriculum should be taught for each grade and what classes should be required for graduation. In California, you are all aware of the courses you've had and the general material in them. Well a bill in the California state assembly if passed would require public schools to include gay history. A similar bill was vetoed by the Governor in 2006 The reason for the bill is to create awareness for a minority group that has received bullying, hate crimes, and a higher suicide rate among teens.
Over the years, the history of African Americans, Native americans, women, and many other immigrant ethnic groups have been added to history requirements. How is this similar or different?
