October 2016 – LGBT-friendly instruction is being brought to increasingly younger students. In California, a 2011 law required that LGBT content be included in social studies and history curriculum. The new material is being introduced to students as young as second graders this fall. In Washington state, students beginning in kindergarten will be taught about “the many ways to express gender” starting in fall of 2017.
“Small states don’t have the option of customizing their textbooks; they have to choose what the big states choose, ” said Brad Dacus of Pacific Justice Institute. “So this will impact school districts in other states around the country.”
Meanwhile, where gender studies are not mandated in the classroom, a web series called “Queer Kids Stuff” is intended to reach preschool audiences.
