Caught in the Crossfire.Harrington-Lueker, Donna
Abstract: Merrimack (New Hampshire) is only one school system in the headlines over the twin issues of what schools should teach about homosexuality and what support they should offer gay and lesbian youth. Sidebars highlight school districts that have received media attention because of their policies on homosexuality and offer suggestions for boards dealing with controversial issues. (MLF)
