(The Hill) A new Florida bill would expand the state’s ban on classroom instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in public schools.
The legislation, filed Tuesday by state Rep. Adam Anderson (R), would expand on the Parental Rights in Education law, which has been denounced by critics as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, in prohibiting instruction from pre-K through eighth grade. State law currently only bans it from kindergarten through third grade.
The bill would also expand the law to apply to charter schools.
It would further prevent employees, contractors and students of a public K-12 school from being required to refer to someone else by their pronouns if they do not match that of their sex assigned at birth.
“It shall be the policy of every public K-12 educational institution that is provided or authorized by the Constitution and laws of Florida that a person’s sex is an immutable biological trait and that it is false to ascribe to a person a pronoun that does not correspond to such person’s sex,” the bill states.
