GOP Candidate for Public Schools Asks About Promoting LGBTQ Website | Local News

PHOENIX — The Republican nominee for the state’s top education official is attacking incumbent Kathy Hoffman for her agency’s decision to promote an LGBTQ website and “question teens.”

“I think it’s very harmful,” QChat’s Tom Horne said during a debate Wednesday for the Superintendent of Public Instruction. He said the site, which can be accessed directly from the Arizona Department of Education’s webpage, is designed to undermine parents’ rights to know what their children are watching.
