Louisiana’s version of Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” legislation to bar classroom discussion of sexual orientation or gender identity, was killed DEAD n the House Education Committee Tuesday.
Louisiana House Bill 837 by Republican Haughton Rep. Dodie Horton would prohibit discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through eighth grades or teachers discussing their own sexual identity through the 12th grade. “Unfortunately, some teachers are interjecting their own lifestyle choices into the classroom,” Horton said. “(The bill) defines the line that has recently been blurred by some teachers to share their personal sexual identity and gender preferences with our children.”
Members of the House Education Committee voted 7-4 to keep the bill from advancing.
