Video: Bullied students sue over controversial policy

The Anoka-Hennepin school district in Minnesota does not allow teachers to discuss homosexuality in school. Gay, or perceived to be gay, students say the so-called “neutrality” policy creates a toxic environment for them in school. Four teens, who are suing the district to get the policy changed, recently spoke to Anderson Cooper about the horrors they face every single day. The district declined to speak to AC 360° about their allegations citing the ongoing litigation but in May, the district’s superintendent Dennis Carlson defended the policy to CNN saying, “All the students come with parents in this community and parents have a wide range of beliefs. We serve them all.”
