    SACRAMENTO, Calif (Reuters) - A bill to require public schools in California to teach about the historical accomplishments of gay men and lesbians passed the state legislature on Tuesday in what supporters call a U.S. first.

    Governor Jerry Brown, a Democrat, has not said publicly whether he supports the bill, which he has 12 days to sign or veto once it reaches his desk later this month. If he takes no action, the measure would become law automatically.

    The bill gained final passage from the state Assembly on a vote of 49-25, without a single Republican supporting it. The measure cleared the state Senate in April.

    I don’t see the problem, schools already teach about Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Christopher Marlowe, and Herman Melville – the law merely allows these and other important figures of history to come out of the closet.

    but why the hell does a state legislature have to get involved in the curriculum of schools? I am against this sort of crap no matter the topic. If schools are run locally, the local boards decide what is taught, to the basic standards set by the state, not specific "Teach X because we are PC asshats" topics.

    How would some people feel if a legislature required every student to get training in a springfield .30-06. rifle as part of thier curriculum?

    Private school.... if you don't like public school you don't have to attend or send your children. It makes me laugh when people complain about something that comes for free.

    and THAT is the crux of the problem we have when it comes to government services. its not free. you pay for it. You may not notice it because its included in your pay deductions, or part of your mortgage or rent, but you are paying for public education.

    So I assume you agree that If i dont want to use the service, I can get re-imbursed for sending my kid somewhere else?
