Delaware Board Member Opposes Teaching Definition of Gay

A school board member in downstate Delaware is opposed to a new health curriculum that includes definitions for terms including gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender.

The Daily Times of Salisbury, Maryland (http://tinyurl.com/m329wk2 ), reports that Indian River School District Board of Education member Shaun Fink spoke at a meeting this week about his opposition to the curriculum. He says schools in the district should not be teaching "anything that discusses gender identity, homosexuality."

Fink says it's not the place of schools to teach whether being gay is "normal."

Some teachers pushed back against Fink's concerns, saying that some students aren't learning about transgender people or other topics related to sexual orientation at home. One teacher noted that there are transgender students in the district.
