Starting in the 2020–2021 school year LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) history will be part of the curriculum in Illinois public schools.

Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed the law Aug. 9 making Illinois the fourth state to mandate teaching LGBT history after California, New Jersey and Colorado. 

The law mandates that history classes in public schools “include a study of the roles and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the history of this country and this state.” 

Under the requirements of the new law any textbooks bought with state funding must be “non-discriminatory” and “include the roles and contributions of all people protected under the Illinois Human Rights Act.” (TAB)

      Bob Hastings, I believe your comment is inappropriate, focusing on one group in derogatory manner, in this case, is AntiSemetic. The same speech for which our two Muslim members of Congress are constantly criticized and corrected. Not working for them. I’m bringing it up because I just now became a member and yours is one of the first opinions I see.
      I’m just confused since I thought God’s special people are Jewish, and we are promised He will bless those who bless the Jews and curse those who curse the Jews.
