Does anyone have any sense as to how Ron Huberman's coming out (CEO of public schools in Chicago) has been received by people over there in Illinois?

I admit I was surprised to hear of this because of how strongly regulated schools in the U.S. are with regard to (gay) sexuality. How are students/parents/administrators/schools negotiating this? I tried to do a news search but couldn't find much. Any links or personal insights are most welcome!
