Personally I’m sick and tired of seeing Nazi German history repeat itself. Thank you Gavin Newsom.
Earlier this year, the Temecula Valley Unified School District rejected textbooks and curriculum materials for an elementary school program because it included references to slain gay-rights activist Harvey Milk. The school board president even referred to the LGBTQ icon as a “pedophile,” drawing outrage from Newsom and other leaders across the state as well as protests from teachers in the district.
“CA is stepping in,” Newsom declared on Thursday. “We’re going to purchase the book for these students – the same one that hundreds of thousands of kids are already using. If these extremist school board members won’t do their job, we will – and fine them for their incompetence.”
“If the school board won’t do its job by its next board meeting to ensure kids start the school year with basic materials, the state will deliver the book into the hands of children and their parents – and we’ll send the district the bill and fine them for violating state law.”
About time. Other Democrats can learn from him what it’s like to have a goddam backbone.
And remember: Reading is fundamental.
