While the passing of the FAIR Act was a remarkable step forward, the bill passed with no specific mandates or time frames to create updated curriculum and no funding to provide trainings for teachers on how to implement the new LGBT inclusive curriculum.
Due to the ongoing institutionalized homophobia in the public school system and the lack of ability at the state level, most districts across the state are simply ignoring the FAIR Act altogether. With no mandate coming from the top, local districts simply choose to opt out of providing any supplemental materials, sensitivity trainings or additional resources, leaving teachers to fend for themselves. There are thousands of California teachers who understand how crucial this curriculum is for their LGBT students and they are motivated and excited to implement it in their classrooms.
But with no district support, no adequate training, and no materials, these teachers cannot do anything but wait for resources to appear. Meanwhile, their students continue to be bullied, harassed, and beat up. They continue to drop out of school. This project makes it possible for LGBT youth to begin learning immediately that their history DOES matter, that it is ificant, and that they are part of an important and vital community of true civil rights heroes whose legacy deserves a place in the classroom.

Her appointment begins in , following the completion of her term at the University of Oslo. Jaggar published a pair of articles in Metaphilosophy , co-authored with former student Theresa W. In October, Dr. I Am Subject: Sharing our Truths to Reclaim Our Selves is a memoir that combines my own history with the words and experiences of other writers to examine the issues that perplex contemporary women.
Simply knowing that others have struggled can bring women out of isolated suffering to a deeper sense of awareness and understanding. I Am Subject provides a safe space for women to increase their awareness regarding where they have come from and where they are going as they move forward into the next stages of their lives. It is my hope that those who read these words will sit with them, give thought to how they might apply to their own lives and the lives of women they know, and begin their own conversations regarding how to best turn increased awareness into action.
