Can I discuss topics or teach concepts in my classroom that may make people feel uncomfortable?
Yes. The law does not prevent discussion of topics that may be controversial or make some students feel uncomfortable. However, you may not tell students they should or must feel guilty because they belong to a particular race, color, national origin, or sex. And you should not tell students how to feel or that they need to admit to feeling a certain way about these topics. The Florida Legislature’s stated purpose in adopting this law was to prohibit coercing students and employees to hold particular beliefs.
