Tenn. bill would ban homosexuality talk in schools

A Tennessee state senator has proposed a bill that would ban middle and elementary school teachers from talking about homosexuality in schools.

Proposed by Sen. Stacey Campfield, the Classroom Protection Act would also require guidance counselors to report students' conversations about sexuality to parents.

Opponents of the bill said the bill would discourage gay youth from speaking with counselors about their sexual orientation and any bullying that might come from it.

But Campfield said schools should not shield parents from that information.
