 When I was in elementary school, my teacher had a speaker come in to tell us that it is okay to be a homosexual.  Naturally, parents complained (including my own).

20 years later, I am wondering how many of you would be upset if a teacher informed your elementary school-aged children that homosexuality is ok.

I'm fine with it because I'm the parent. I would monitor the situation much much more closely to see what I had to do as a parent if a teacher was telling my child homosexuality isn't ok and using curriculum that marginalizes homosexuality.

It would not bother me personally because I don't believe there IS anything wrong with being gay.

I would be okay with it, as I think homosexuality IS OKAY.

They are already aware it's ok...but no I wouldn't care. Teachers are supposed to teach acceptance as well.

I wouldn't care. However, I would be upset if a teacher told my child that homosexuality was wrong. It would be one thing for them to give their opinion, but for them to put it out as fact would be inappropriate.

They already know homosexuality is okay, so the teacher wouldn't be saying anything they haven't heard already.

I would not be upset. You should make a poll.

I'd be upset only because it's not the schools place to parent my children or teach such controversial things.
