School Considers Gays for Sex Ed


Eighth graders in western Michigan may learn more about human sexuality than the classmates who came before them.

The Sexual Education Advisory Committee at Saugatuck Middle School may ask all students to watch a video to understand what it's like to come out as gay. The video, Coming Out: What Every Teen (Gay or Straight) Needs to Know, addresses bullying, tolerance, and confronting ones own sexuality.

Superintendent Rolfe Timmerman told WZZM News that the video is well made, and worth any waves made by parents and citizens around the video. A copy of the video will be available to any students interested in watching it.

The school board will vote on whether to include the video as part of curriculum on May 16.
