How Should We Teach in Schools about Sexual Orientation? A rejoinder to Petrovic

Journal of Moral Education 28 (2):211-214 (1999)
Abstract
Petrovic (1999) argues that teachers need to portray homosexuality positively and must not express their beliefs against it. This rejoinder argues against this position, maintaining instead that teachers need to teach about heterosexuality and homosexuality in a balanced manner. I argue against Petrovic's position both on the grounds that it has internal weaknesses and on the grounds that its consequences would be undesirable
