ACLU: San Diego-Area School Censors Student's Harvey Milk Report

A San Diego-area sixth-grader's report on slain gay rights leader Harvey Milk was not welcomed by the school's principal, the L.A. Times reports:

Milk

Said Jones' mother: “This whole thing is unbelievable – first my daughter got called into the principal’s office as if she were in some kind of trouble, and then they treated her presentation like it was something icky. Harvey Milk was an elected official in this state and an important person in history. To say my daughter’s presentation is ‘sex education’ because Harvey Milk happened to be gay is completely wrong.”

One thought on “on got no milk …

  1. I saw this last night on the news. WTH? Seriously, the girl's report was just a report on Harvey Milk but those people took it there because Harvey Milk is gay. I can believe it though because SD is very conservative. I can't believe students had to get permission to hear her report on him..and supposedly it was during a lunch break. Things are screwy.
