If the “Leon County School Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Support Guide ” (Guide) is approved as currently written, teachers will be encouraged to make their classrooms “more LGBTQ+ friendly.”
The Guide provides seven examples (listed below) of how to make the classroom more friendly for LGBTQ+ students.
These examples include posting pride flags in the classroom, using proper pronouns, integrating positive portrayals of LGBTQ+ people in the curriculum, and implementing “culturally responsive teaching” strategies in the classroom.
It appears that individual teachers will decide what LGBTQ+ friendly actions to take in their classroom.
The Guide is currently being reviewed by the Leon County School Board.
Tallahassee Reports has previously written about how the Guide addresses gender identity.
