Windy City Times Mentions Adler Support for Inclusive Curriculum Bill

An Illinois Senate-approved bill that calls for LGBTQ teachings in classrooms across the state is making headlines this week; and so are the supporters who helped it reach legislators.

The Inclusive Curriculum Bill would require educators to include LGBTQ-related historical events and contributions in their lesson plans. The Illinois Senate gave it the go-ahead on May 2 with a 34-18 vote, forwarding it to the state House for consideration. Adler University and fellow advocates of the legislation hope to see a vote before the conclusion of the current session at the end of May.

“The bill is an initiative of Equality Illinois, the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance, and the Legacy Project and is supported by the Illinois State Board of Education and a broad coalition of statewide and local educational, civil rights, health, and civic organizations …” said a Windy City Times report, which also lists Adler among the organizations lobbying for the bill.
