The San Diego Cooperative Charter School, a K-8 school, is participating in that city's annual parade of homosexual depravity. Despite pleas from a group of parents, as well as the fact that a lot of immoral behavior is displayed in the parade that kids ought not to see, the school has refused to reconsider its position, and the San Diego school board has refused to intervene.

More and more schools are going beyond just promoting "tolerance" of students who are different, and are becoming advocates for the homosexual agenda. And they are refusing parents the right to opt their kids out of such indoctrination. The only option for concerned parents is homeschooling or private school, though even private schools are also starting to be forced to promote the homosexual lifestyle (see Iowa's "Bully Bill", signed into law by Governor Culver on March 5, 2007).
It would seem that, with the educational system in the shambles it is, they would focus on what is supposed to be the purpose of public education in the first place--to teach our kids academic subjects--not to promote an agenda that the majority of Americans have a problem with. When did the educational system decide it was going to be an agent for social change? Oh, yeah, maybe when it was taken over by the NEA (National Education Association).
An excellent commentary (mp3 audio) on the homosexual agenda can be found on Jan Mickelson's show of this past Monday, March 5, 2007. The commentary starts about 32 minutes into the program. "Mickelson in the Morning" is broadcast on WHO Radio - 1040 on your AM dial , out of Des Moines, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. local time.
