The Miami-Dade School Board voted 7-1 last year to designate October as LGBTQ History Month, a symbolic period celebrating the marginalized group with no curricular changes.
The board will revisit that decision Wednesday and weigh whether to add Supreme Court rulings recognizing same-sex marriage and LGBTQ employment protections to 12th-grade social studies lessons.
Such recognitions require yearly board OKs.
In light of Florida’s new law restricting classroom instruction on gender identity and sexual preference, which critics call “Don’t Say Gay,” and the Aug. 23 election of two allies of Gov. Ron DeSantis to the board, approval for both is uncertain.
