Schwarzenegger stands up to Controversial Education

Here is a follow-up of a story that originally appeared in the Bosun Locker on May 11th: SB 1437: Bill Barring 'mom' and 'dad from textbooks.

According to World Net Daily, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is standing up to controversial education measures. A spokesman for Schwarzenegger said that the governor will veto at least one of three controversial education measures related to sexual orientation.

The governor opposes SB 1437! This information also appeared on Campaign for Children and Families website and appears to be the governor's legitimate position. I was getting worried that California had gone completely soft. Maybe there is hope for California yet.

However, the governor has not commented on his stand on two other measures, AB 606 and AB 1056:

AB 606 would authorize the California Superintendent of Public Instruction to arbitrarily withhold state funds (around 2/3rds of a school district's budget) from any district that does not adequately promote transsexuality, bisexuality, or homosexuality in its school policies. AB 606 repeals the current state law prohibiting transsexual, bisexual, and homosexual curriculum from being forced upon local schools, and authorizes the state Superintendent to develop new curriculum that affirms transsexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality in all its forms. STATUS: June 21 hearing scheduled in the Senate Education Committee.

AB 1056 would spend $250,000 in taxpayer dollars to promote transsexual, bisexual, and homosexual lifestyles under the banner of “tolerance education." STATUS: On 'suspense' file in Senate Education Committee.
