Stan Wasbin, a California father of four children says he does not want the schools of his local Capistrano Unified School District to become “re-education camps” pushing an LGBT agenda. To make his sentiments known, this concerned parent wrote a letter three pages in length to the district officials arguing that the classroom should not be politicized. An excerpt of the letter reads:
“In our public schools, we want our children to learn math, music, science, English, art, American history and a foreign language or two. That’s a lot, and that’s enough. Let’s not further burden our teachers by forcing them to teach LGBT material, a subject that so readily lends itself to propaganda and which can engender sexual confusion.”
Upon reception and review of Wasbin’s letter, the school board agreed to grant his request to speak to the board. The latter is taking place today. It is believed that Wasbin’s letter and request are the result of a recent California law that was signed into action last year by Governor Jerry Brown. The new law requires that all schools in the state of California include historical achievements of homosexuals in the curriculum. To make his stance explicitly clear, Wasbin also included in his letter that it is not the teaching of significant historical accomplishments that he takes issues with. It is informing students of accomplishments with — what he perceives to be — the purpose or endorsing the homosexual agenda. More specifically he states, “If someone has made an important contribution – and that person happens to be classified as LGBT – then by all means, let’s teach our children about that person – but not because of that person’s sexual identity group.”
