NEA Drafting Gay Resolution

NEA Drafting Gay Resolution The NEA is working on a new resolution supporting the development of curricula designed to meet the needs of gay youth. A draft of the resolution made public by CNS News.com on March 20 states: "The NEA recognizes that the complex and diverse needs of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning students; and gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender families and their children require the development of programs that promote a safe and inclusive environment."

The draft includes statements supporting curriculum, programs and activities; the involvement of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender educators in the development of these materials; the dissemination of programs supporting gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning students; recognition of the importance of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender education employees as role models; inclusion of the historical contributions of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people; and, coordination with organizations and concerned agencies that promote the contributions, heritage, culture, history, health and care of gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgender people.

A final version of the resolution is expected to be adopted at the union's annual convention in Los Angeles in July.
