queer education for parents

Following recent legislative changes, concepts of gender identity and sexuality will be introduced in the classroom for the first time. For many parents, this can cause concern regarding the range of information covered and how this information may impact their children. This presentation guides parents through the new curriculum and offers an inside look at how this information will be communicated to students. Parents will learn about queer identities from a developmental perspective.
