LGBTQ Training For Middle And High School Teachers To Be Offered Under New Bill

Under a new law, California middle and high school teachers will be offered LGBTQ training. Governor Newsom signed a bill over the weekend requiring the California Department of Education to develop and update resources for in-service training to help teachers in grades seven through 12 better understand how to support LGBTQ students. The agency would also need to offer online training on the topic. The resources must be available by July 2021.
