    The history of gays in America has been taught for almost twenty years in American higher education.

    OP is fail.

    Social engineering of the schools is one of the reason so much money is dumped into education without the promise of getting students mastering the basic curricum scxhools are intended to teach.

    Not only will gay "history" be taught, but they will lie about it.

    Will they teach that Harvey Milk was killed because he was gay or because he was a corrupt poliltician?

    The problem is, that education was meant to represent the fundamentals of reading, writing, math science, etc. It was not meant to solve the ills of the population or cultures.

    Stop usurping the resources that education needs for the basics. Tolerance of minorities of any kind cannot be taught in schools but by society in general.

    Of course toleration of minorities can be taught in public school.

    But what is happening is the cost. New reading books and fad strategies keep coming up for the social engineering in schools. Instead of holding on to reading books 4-6 years, new reading series are bought every 2 years! That's an astronomical expense.

    The same things for all new strategies in schools. Some work and many don't, but they replace them like they are napkins regardless of the effectiveness. Let our citzens take responsibility for their culture, the schools should be in academia.

    Of course, that is just my impression, being an educator rather than a theorist on society.

    Textbook publication strategies are not dependent on minorities, only on making profit.

    You could have the "white generally" history books of the fifties mode today, and the companies would still be coming out with a new edition every 18 to 24 months.

    That is why so many history teachers are writing their own materials for the students.
