Florida School District Recognizes LGBT History Month
Good news from the Sunshine state. South Florida's Broward County School District has decided to recognize October's LGBT History Month, making it the first school district in the nation to do so. The decision is part of an effort to reduce bullying on campus. Broward teachers will also be encouraged to profile exemplary LGBT role models.
"It helps if we teach our students the meaningful contributions of a variety of people and that way those people aren't other people, they're all of us," school board member Maureen Dinnen told the Sun-Sentinel.
