Alaska school district developing LGBTQ literature course

    FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — An Alaska school district committee is continuing to update a proposed literature course that includes LGBTQ issues.

    KTVF-TV reported the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District is still developing the course as part of its curriculum development process.

    The district's Curriculum Advisory Committee hopes to provide a greater diversity of choices to students by offering the course called Social Themes in Literature. 

    Residents have offered support and opposition during January and February school board meetings.

    The committee used the community feedback to make several changes to the course studying LGBTQ themes, which will also use material combined from other classes.
