LGBTQ-Inclusive Curriculum Mandates: A Discussion

Mar 9, 2021

11:00am – 11:30am CT

Currently in the United States, only a handful of states have passed laws that mandate the contributions of the LGBTQ+ community to our society today be incorporated into all K-12 social studies and history curriculum. An opposing handful ban it. Join representatives from the It Gets Better Project and EducationCounsel as they discuss what existing mandates entail or restrict, the importance of inclusive curriculum for LGBTQ+ students, and what it might take to pass such laws in every state.
