The book in question is "Becoming Visible: A reader in gay and lesbian history for high school and college students.
The questionnaire being given at many schools asks questions such as:
If you have never slept with someone of the same sex, how do you know you wouldn't prefer that? Is it possible you merely need a good gay experience?
Most child molesters are heterosexual. Do you consider it safe to expose your children to heterosexuals? Heterosexual teachers particularly?
How can you have a truly satisfying relationship with someone of the opposite sex, given the obvious physical and emotional differences?
Is it possible you are heterosexual because you fear the same sex?
What does this have to do with safety?
The book is available on Amazon.com if you would like to purchase and read it yourself.

The title of the book seems misleading if the book has any connection to the questionnaire. If the book were really about LGBT history, I'd be all for it. That questionnaire is just ridiculous though and has absolutely nothing to do with safety.
That isn't in the book. She said it is a separate questionnaire but gave no credible link

Please read the entire question. It is about a book! The questions ARE IN THE BOOK.
Here is a link to the Introduction. Jennings speaks about the need for educating high school students about gay history.
If you don't want to believe the story, call the Dept of Education.
