Dekalb County schools ban antigay harassment

Dekalb County schools ban antigay harassment

School board officials in Dekalb County, Ga., which includes Atlanta, voted Monday night to prohibit antigay harassment, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The vote came after controversy following a comment made by motivational speaker Danny Buggs during a presentation at Stone Mountain High School that "God made Adam and Eve and not Adam and Steve." Board member Bebe Joyner called the vote a "no-brainer.... I feel like we need to take a very strong stand, shout from the rooftops...that we will not tolerate, under any circumstances, the harassment of any student for any reason by anybody."
