Florida Passes "Don't Say Gay" Law Limiting Teachers in Elementary Schools from Instructing on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Topics

The text of the Florida so-called "Don't Say Gay" law is here.

Classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.

 

It authorizes a parent to: "Bring an action against the school district to obtain a declaratory judgment that the school district procedure or practice violates this paragraph and seek injunctive relief. A court may award damages and shall award reasonable attorney fees and court costs to a parent who receives declaratory or injunctive relief."
