AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) – Maine’s attorney general is being asked to look into what effect the state’s gay marriage law would have on the public schools’ curriculum.

Education Commissioner Susan Gendron asked for the analysis. Gendron has said the law will have no impact on curriculum decisions. But the campaign supporting repeal of the law in a Nov. 3 referendum says it could lead to gay marriage being taught in schools.

In her request to Attorney General Janet Mills, Gendron says questions about the impact of gay marriage on school teachings have persisted and are now being directed to superintendents.

Education Department spokesman David Connerty-Marin told the Bangor Daily News that Gendron is asking for the legal analysis so the issue can be put to rest.
