Harvey Milk Day; AB 2567 states ..."On Harvey Milk Day, exercises remembering the life of Harvey Milk and recognizing his accomplishments as well as the contributions he made to this state" should be conducted; specifically, "all public schools and educational institutions are encouraged to observe ... and conduct suitable commemorative exercises."That's K-12 "and beyond" [Buzz Lightyear].
Notice that Milk was a San Francisco county supervisor with a "special interest" agenda: why should the entire state school system celebrate the life and work of a San Francisco pervert?
I can understand Cesar Chavez or William Mulholland, at least their lives and works affected the lives and works of all Californians, and those somewhat positively. But Milk's resume has had nothing but a deleterious affect on the people of California.
This kind of legislation is one of very many reasons we left California.
Soon teachers with a Judeo-Christian worldview will be nudged out of the profession and new teachers with a similar worldview will emigrate to other states (one of our daughters), or into private education, depriving the kids of California some of the best in the business.
Woe to California and Californians.
