This is from the Capitol Resource Institute (CRI)…this state is ridiculous!!
SB 1437 (Kuehl, D-Los Angeles) will be heard in the Senate Education Committe on Wednesday, May 3, 2006.
“SB 1437 would require that young children be taught history lessons on “the contributions of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender to the economic, political, and social development of California and the United States of America.”
SB 1437 is the most extreme effort thus far to transform our public schools into institutions that disregard all notions of the traditional family unit.
SB 1437 seeks to eliminate all “stereotypes” of the traditional family so that young children are brainwashed into believing that families with moms and dads are irrelevant.
If passed, SB 1437 could potentially require gender-neutral bathrooms in our schools and all references to “husband” and “wife” or “mom and dad” removed from school textbooks as the norm.
SB 1437 not only affects textbooks and instructional materials for kindergarten and grades 1-12, it also affects all school-sponsored activities! School-sponsored activities include everything from cheerleading and sports activities to the prom. Under SB 1437 school districts would likely be prohibited from having a “prom king and queen” because that would show bias based on gender and sexual orientation.
Please contact the Senate Education Committee and urge them to oppose SB 1437.”
