You're article says nothing of the sort. While I disagree with leaving out homosexuality in the coarse, there is nothing barring a teacher from adding their own supplementary content. Even if the material doesn't count towards a grade, they can still include it so long as it doesn't interfere with the required material.

I think the Governor is perhaps a little to close, personally, to the issue. While such a law may have merit, I'm sure there's a better venue to consider it.
