LGBTQI-inclusive Curriculum

Senate: S1929
Assembly: A808

This bill would bring classroom materials into alignment with Core Curriculum Content Standards by ensuring that students receive diverse instruction in history and the social sciences, which will cultivate respect towards minority groups, allow students to appreciate differences, and acquire the skills and knowledge needed to function effectively with people of various backgrounds.

LGBTQI inclusive curricula benefit students of all sexual orientations and gender identities in several key areas. Students gain an unbiased and more thorough understanding of the LGBTQI community while learning how to promote acceptance. Students receive validation of their experiences, sexual orientations and gender identities and find a safe space to express their opinions and values.
