    I am being serious. I don't understand the logic of denying a book about internment camps because it doesn't present "both sides".

    I would love to understand the rational for this. Please!

    Bit picky, but I believe what they feel is missing is why the Government interned Japanese Americans, although wrong, it is understandable given the paranoia of the day. Mistake is that it is an English class, introduced for the literary value, and as personal narrative, the whole history is studied in the History class

    Teachers are being requested to remove family pictures as the "don't say gay" law goes into effect in Florida.

    It is seriously wrong!

    It's not the first time a controversial term downplaying slavery has appeared in view of Texas schools' curriculum. In 2015, a textbook publisher in Texas came under fire over one of its geography textbooks, which referred to slaves in America as "workers."

    Can we PLEASE give our kids a break from sexual perversion until the 4th grade? And it's not the "don't say gay" law. It doesn't say that anywhere in the law. And did you know that these teachers are allowed to answer questions about that shit? I don't think it's much to ask Mr. Smith the art teacher to stick the wedding photos of him and his husband in the desk drawer until the end of the school day. Stuff like that provokes questions.

    the left never truly says what it means.
    indoctrinating kids into this weird crap of identity choice and which pronouns do you use
    is somehow supposed to liberate kids

    It confuses them, and preys on their young minds before they have a chance to think for themselves

    If you are gay, you will figure it out by yourself, if you think you are born the 'wrong gender" you will as well
    But let the kids make their own choice before you even present it as such,and let them do it as their own speed

    "hey! teacher! leave them kids alone"

    Why in the fuck would anyone need hide pictures of their family while teaching in a public school?

    That is the dumbest, anti-American BS I have ever heard.

    The ignorance and fear is astounding. Plus, discriminate much? Does the heterosexual teacher need to hide their family photos?

    If not, a trump lawyer could win that case without intimidating witnesses.

    Alright, I see the perverts are going to avoid the OP and focus on family pictures as the debate.

    Can someone please come out of the closet and explain how the topic in the OP makes sense?

    For those afraid (or incapable) of reading the entire article i will summarize...

    A book is being denied for 10th graders because it doesn't offer an American perspective of Japanese Internment Camps.

    If it were not for heterosexuals no gay people would exist. And they certainly can not naturally carry on any family lineage. That should be taught.

    that's not part of the law. the law is specific about what is TAUGHT to KIDS CURRICULA , not personal effects

    Because it doesn't. The book is an "historical novel" based loosely on the author's family experiences in an internment camp. It is on the order of The 1619 Project. That's the problem with it. Now, if it were added as a fictional book to a school library, I see no problem with it. Adding it as historical narrative or some historically accurate account should be reason to reject it same as with the The 1619 Project.
