Elementary teachers are calling on the Education Ministry to include lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and transsexual issues in school curriculum.

The Elementary Teachers’ Federation recently sent a letter to Education Minister Kathleen Wynne asking that the curriculum reflect family diversity.

“We want children to have a positive worth of themselves, and if there are circumstances at home where they have two moms or two dads, that’s fine,” said local union president Ron Rivait.
