A California School Board Votes Out Curriculum on Anti-Gay Bullying

The school board in Alameda, Calif., has reversed its decision to support an elementary school curriculum on anti-gay bullying. It had adopted the curriculum in May but voted this week to phase it out, according to The Associated Press.

The board decided to instead supplement more generic anti-bullying lessons with children's books that address different kinds of discrimination, including bias against gays.

It sounds from the article that community members, both those that supported and opposed the curriculum on anti-gay bullying, are still uneasy about where the matter stands.
