In Amarillo, Texas, Republican Texas State Senator Konni Burton has introduced a bill that will force teachers and any other school faculty to out LGBT students, even if the student asks to keep their gender or sexual identity a secret. According to Senate Bill 242, if teachers were to refuse to out LGBT students to their families, they will be penalized with suspension without pay, or even terminated.
