What are you talking about? Do you know what a curriculum is? It's mandated by the state of the federal government, it says everything that teachers NEED to teach, anything that is not in there, is left up to choice or not taught at all.
Something like this is not mandorty as it's the schools and teachers choice to participate.
I do work in gay rights my friend and these sorts of campaigns are excellent for children. You are using a legitimate problem, which is bullying and factoring in tolerence for people who are different then themselves.
The program is literally about anti-bullying,

Mmm, there's no "side" or "true colors" to accepting another human being for who they are and not needing to aggress them for it. Others might see it as a political issue, I however do not.

if you choose to look at an anti-bullying program as purely ONE sided, then that is your problem.
Just because the group advocating the program is a gay rights group doesn't mean they are attempting to exclude any other forms of bullying.
If we would stop shoving all of our differences in eachother's faces, I believe we would get along alot better as bigotry and racial discrimination would be drastically reduced.
