Bright & Early: Don’t Say #$% Edition

Good morning, Nashville. The controversial “Don’t Say Gay” bill passed the Tennessee Senate this weekend with a few changes, despite recent protests by Nashville students. The bill restricts educators from including instruction about homosexuality in lesson plans before 9th grade, though an added amendment does allow them to respond to questions about homosexuality from students. The bill still has to go before the House, and is not likely to come up until the 2012 session.
