This month’s book review is One Teacher In Ten. Kevin Jennings, who was the executive director of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Teacher’s Network, has complied stories from the community. These teachers have traditionally dwelt in the deepest of closets, but increasing numbers of young people are now served by teachers who are out and proud. Educators from all regions tell about their struggles and victories in their fight for justice.
Dates To Remember: April 10, National Youth HIV/AIDS Awareness Day; April 15, National Day of Silence, however, because USD 259 is out of school that day, Wichita will be celebrating on April 14 at A.
