Gov. Beshear vetoed SB 150, which in part, keeps public school children from being sexualized through curriculum normalizing LGBT identity. The Kentucky Department of Education is also opposed. Both have conflated affirming the humanity of kids and disagreeing with sexual identity politics inappropriate for minors in public school classrooms. State Sen. Mike Wilson (R-Bowling Green) pushed back and said in a press release that school is supposed to be a place kids should focus on academics, and not a place where children go to learn about sex or sexual practices. “These topics should be taught within the home where a family value system is the foundation of those conversations,” Wilson said. “But, as we have seen in recent years, many topics meant to be taught within the home have been pushed into the public sphere of the education system.”
