Gay Marriage Law Has No Impact on Public School Curricula, AG Concludes

Gay Marriage Law Has No Impact on Public School Curricula, AG Concludes:
"Maine Attorney General Janet Mills says the state's gay marriage law enacted by the Legislature last spring has no impact on public school teaching. Mills' review came at the request of education officials, after same-sex marriage opponents claimed that the law would result in children being taught about gay marriage in public schools.

Maine Attorney General Janet Mills researched Maine's gay marriage law and then compared it with similar legislation in Massachusetts. Then she asked her staff to review her findings just to see if there was any way that either law could require public school students to be instructed on same sex marriage.

'Our answer frankly is 'no,' there is no impact on the curricula of Maine's public schools,' Mills says."
