    I don't think we need to discuss how the world is to a grade school student. The bad news will come soon enough.

    Still I understand where you coming from..I do. Theres alot of things today that are more complicated, its not the schools place to teach religion, morality or indoctrinate kids on what some want them to be...school should be what it was for when i went to school...to teach the 4rs so you could function and make your own choices.

    We were debating gay rights. The teacher was a complete twit on how debates should work, but it still was a class discussion. And I could also see it coming up in a class discussion on current events or even something like talking about what they did on a summer vacation. What if someone's family went to a gay rights event or their mothers or fathers got married or the family went to a same sex wedding? Those might have been the only things that happened to the kid over the summer and the other kids all got to discuss what they did with the class. It wouldn't be fair to exclude a kid or, worse, make them find something else to talk about just because some people want to stick their fingers in their ears and continuously chant "la la la, gays don't exist, la la la, just don't talk about them and they'll go away, la la la".

    Completely ridiculous law.
    How do you see this debate happening ina 4th grade class? Do you think a 10 year old mind can handle the subject matter on a serious basis?

    I don't have a problem with k-5 not allowing discussion. I do think if a child has homosexual parents and bring it up then there is room for discussion.I have a problem with banning it in middle school

    It has no place in school...just like religion and morality. School is for academics

    I first became aware of aids in 1968 ...we arrested a kid in his 20s for robbery, he was sick very sick. We brought him to the hospital. We kept 24 hour watch on him..his organs were failing and the poor kid was a mess and finally died.

    There is no way in '68 you could have known it was HIV or AIDS. The anagram AIDS wasn't used till the 80's and HIV wasn't isolated till the 80's.

    You keep saying that, but the real world says other wise. When 100s of kids off themselves a year due to intolerance, it becomes an issue.

    Political correctness is for the US.

    Obama is known in Mexico as El Negro. Can you imagine referring to him like that in the US?
