Breaking: California Governor Signs Gay Studies into Law

by CitizenLink Team

The law mandates that all grade levels will positively portray homosexuality and transgenderism.

Other mandates and/or restrictions include:

  • (Sec. 2, 51500) A teacher shall not give instruction and a school district shall not sponsor any activity that promotes a discriminatory bias on the basis of … sexual orientation …
  • (Sec. 3, 51501) The state board and any governing board shall not adopt any textbooks or other instructional materials for use in the public schools that contain any matter reflecting adversely on persons on the basis of … sexual orientation…

Candi Cushman, education analyst with CitizenLink, said, “It’s unfortunate and sad that — at a time when many students are struggling just to graduate and read at grade level — California has allowed its history classes to be politicized by adult identity politics like this.

“We should be teaching our children that people are deserving of celebration in history books because of their outstanding, worthy accomplishments, regardless of how they identify sexually or otherwise,” she added. “After all, Benjamin Franklin is in history books because he demonstrated that lightening was electricity — not because of his sexual choices.”

Read SB48, the “Fair, Accurate, Inclusive and Respectful (FAIR) Education Act.”
