Summary
"Takes cameras into classrooms across the U.S. to look at one of today's most controversial issues: whether and how gay issues should be discussed in schools ... Makes the case that all children are affected by anti-gay prejudice and that adults have a responsibility to address it. Showcasing teachers leading non-judgmental discussions with students about gay and lesbian people, the film demonstrates that students are eager to have honest conversations and learn about differences and respect"--Container
