Maine AG: Marriage Won't Effect Schools


Though Maine attorney general Janet Mills says that allowing same-sex marriage throughout the state will not affect curricula in schools, marriage equality opponents are arguing otherwise.

Mills, in a study released on Sunday, wrote, "I have scoured Maine laws relating to the education of its children for any references to marriage in the public school curricula. I have found none." She added, "The state's definition of marriage has no bearing on curricula of public schools. It's apples and oranges."

However, Stand for Marriage Maine, the organization leading the charge to reverse the marriage equality law that was passed by the legislature and approved by the governor in the spring, says that it's "irrefutable that there is nothing" in the law to prevent children being taught about gay marriage in schools.
