Proposal to ban homosexual references from TN schools

Knoxville (WVLT) -- Any homosexual references could be banned from Tennessee schools if one local state representative has his way.

Volunteer TV's Kim Bedford has the details of the proposal.

Representative Stacey Campfield wants to ban anything that exposes students to homosexuality in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.

Campfield says, "Really just saying, hey, we're not going to talk about this. We're going to leave it up to the families to talk about and decide when it's appropriate for their children about this kind of information. That's not an area our schools should be concentrating on."

Campfield hopes to present the bill to the legislature in the next couple of weeks.

If passed, it would go into effect in July.
