Georgia legislators introduced a bill this week that would prohibit discussions about gender identity and sexual orientation in some private school classrooms. The Common Humanity in Private Education Act, which is co-sponsored by 10 Republican state senators, states that “no private or nonpublic school or program … shall promote, compel, or encourage classroom discussion of sexual orientation or gender identity in primary grade levels or in a manner that is not appropriate for the age and developmental stage of the student.” The Atlanta Journal-Constitution quoted a Republican sponsor, Burt Jones, as saying, “No teacher should be promoting gender identity discussions with small children in a classroom setting — which is exactly what this bill says and why I support it.”
