A settlement has been reached in court between the State of Florida and parents, teachers, students and advocacy groups that challenged what has been called by opponents the “Don’t Say Gay” law. After being in place for two years, the measure, formally named “Parental Rights in Education,” has been revised to clarify what discussions are permitted in Florida classrooms. The settlement was signed by Florida’s Chief Deputy Solicitor General Daniel W. Bell on March 11. It affirms that classroom discussions of sexual orientation and gender identity are permissible so long as they are not part of classroom instruction or lessons. “Parental Rights in Eduction” was passed in March 2022 to a national uproar. It was coined “Don’t Say Gay” for its prohibition of classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity kindergarten through the third grade.
