New Jersey Becomes Second State in U.S. to Mandate Education for Students on LGBTQ Achievements, Diverse Histories

TRENTON – New Jersey will be the second state to mandate middle and high school students to learn about LGBTQ contributions.

Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy signed into law Senate bill 1569, which requires schools to adopt a curriculum that “accurately portray political, economic, and social contributions of persons with disabilities and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.”

“The Governor believes that ensuring students learn about diverse histories will help build more tolerant communities and strengthen educational outcomes,”  Murphy spokesperson Christine Lee said in a statement, the Huffington Post reported Thursday.

The policies go into effect for the 2020-2021 school year, according to HuffPost.

“In the era of Donald Trump, Phil will not give an inch on the equal treatment of our LGBTQ neighbors,” Murphy’s governor campaign website said.
