The Illinois Family Institute (IFI) recently encouraged parents to demand their children be removed from classes taught by teachers who voice support for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community.
IFI suggests that liberal teachers are vocal about their politics and, because of this, are easily identifiable. According to the group, “Students usually know who the liberal, activist teachers are. Liberal teachers develop reputations, often as the ‘cool’ teachers.” Everyone would like to consider themselves a “cool” teacher, but are you “cool” in the way the Illinois Family Institute suggests? Are you vocal in your tolerance of the LGBT community and your support of LGBT students? Take the cool teacher quiz to find out if IFI would consider you cool.
