The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Vertiginously Ugly!
The Good! *Broward County Public Schools* The Broward County, Florida School Board voted yesterday to officially recognize October as LGBT History month - becoming the first public school district in the country to do so. The ruling allows teachers to create a curriculum based on LGBT history - which may have otherwise been overlooked. At the ruling, school board member Robin Bartleman said that, "Every child deserves to feel safe, not just in their school, but in their own skin." This ruling in Florida is a huge step in promoting LGBT equality - and stopping the bullying and hazing that so many LGBT students face at schools all across America every day. Hopefully more school districts across the nation will follow in Broward County's steps.
