Conservatives to Calif. parents: Leave K-12 public schools Staff   ( Friday, January 18, 2008
A California pro-family leader and his organization are making the blunt pronouncement that because of two new laws signed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger last month, it's time for parents and their children in the Golden State to exit the public school system. "It's time to exit the public schools because your children will be sexually indoctrinated if you leave them there," warns Randy Thomasson of Campaign for Children and Families (CCF). The pro-family leader says that that indoctrination will include kindergarten-age children because of the new laws scheduled to go into effect at the beginning of January 2008. SB 777 requires all school instruction and activities to include positive promotion of homosexuality and cross-genders; and AB 394 enforces the positive attitudes through anti-harassment training for students, teachers, and parents. Karen England, executive director of pro-family lobby Capitol Resource Institute, agrees that it might be time to go, despite her group's current last-minute efforts to gather petition signatures for placing the matter on a state ballot referendum. "Yes," she admits. "I would be very frightened if my kids were in public school in California after the passage of SB 777." Thomasson warns parents must sacrifice to protect their children from the schools, and that private and home schools will be their only sanctuary -- so they must believe they can overcome obstacles to do either one. "If you love your children, and [if] you have a will -- and God gave everybody a strong will -- you can home school ... and you can learn along the way," he counsels. "There are books and curriculum to help you. And you can afford private school if you sacrifice other 'wants' and replace the 'wants' with 'needs,' and [if] you financially adjust." CCF is assisting parents from its website with links to information on how to find funds to pay for private schools or home-schooling material. According to Thomasson, there is no "opt-out" for families or school districts to any of the homosexual "anti-harassment" laws that will go into effect in all public K-12 schools next year.
