Proposition 6

I saw Milk for the first time last week and I found out that I am embarrassed at my lack of knowledge.  I had absolutely no idea that California was close to passing a proposition banning gays and lesbians (and possibly anyone who supported gay rights) from being public school teachers. 

I had no idea. I knew that Harvey Milk did something good for gay rights but I didn't know any specifics.

I just want to say again, in case there are any questions, that I have worked with many gay and lesbian teachers and not a one of them had a "gay agenda" or tried to convince the children of anything inappropriate.  Not one.

And it bothers me that this came up in 1978 and that I heard people saying the same types of things in recent years.  This needs to stop.

Three years ago: No More Sanctions!

Four years ago: Communication
