ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Following months of heated debate, the Alameda Board of Education has voted to phase out the elementary school curriculum it adopted in May to prevent anti-gay bullying.

The five member school board voted 4-1 to replace the controversial curriculum with more generic lessons that promote tolerance.

In a related move, however, the board went on to accept Superintendent Kirsten Vital's recommendation to supplement the broader anti-bullying program with children's books that explicitly address six specific forms of bias, including against gays.

The recommendation was meant to counter complaints from parents opposed to the original lessons that it was wrong to highlight only one type of bullying.
