The article discusses the legal perspective of the impact of governmental recognition of same-sex marriage on public schools. The prevailing issues that affect same-sex marriage and public schools include whether the recognition of same-sex marriage would require a curricular change in public schools, whether parents have the authority to challenge curricular changes relating to same-sex marriage, and whether the denial of same-sex couples of the right to marry has an affect on parenting rights.
