LAUSD Schools Get Ready to Add Gay History

Hosted by

What is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History? That's the question raised by a new law requiring all schools in California to teach a subject teachers and administrators say they can't define. LA Unified enacted rules against slurs about gender identity in 1988. In 2005, it adopted a health textbook saying sexual orientation is not a choice. But LGBT History?  Should parents have the right to opt out when classes begin come January? Also, Detroit is the poorest city in the United States. What's number two?  San Bernardino. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, are unmanned drones changing the nature of warfare?
