Excerpt: A Florida school district is clarifying its rules around discussion of same-sex relationships as teachers are grappling with a new state law championed by Gov. Ron DeSantis which limits how teachers can talk about sexual orientation and gender identity in their classrooms. Orange County Public Schools released a memo on Monday with guidance for teachers around topics like sexual orientation.

The memo said the law prohibits "instruction" on those topics from kindergarten through third grade, but doesn't ban teachers from talking about their partners.
