Skip to comments.CA Public School District Will Force All 1st Graders Curriculum That Normalizes Same-Sex Unions

The Alameda, Calif., public schools are adopting a curriculum that will require first graders to read literature that equates same-sex unions with a family made up of a mother, father and child.
Parents will not be allowed to opt their first graders out of the curriculum.
Members of the Alameda United School District (AUSD) school board voted 3 to 2 last week to implement the Safe Schools curriculum, which supporters say is aimed at stopping anti-homosexual bullying in schools.
The program includes a between one and four lessons each year between grades 1 and 5 to introduce students to LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transsexual) issues.
As part of the curriculum, second graders will be exposed to books like And Tango Makes Three--a story book about two male penguins who hatch an egg and raise a chick together in New Yorks Central Park Zoo--and first graders will see Whos in a Family? which exposes students to a variety of different family structures.
(EDITOR'S NOTE: An earlier version of this story incorrectly indicated that first graders would be exposed to "And Tango Makes Three.")
The discussion plan for Whos In a Family? includes asking students to identify a type of family they see in the book.

Here’s a prime candidate for cutting govt funding. Public schools are an oxymoron anyway.
Another day, another reason to “home school”
Wow. From a military town to a liberal laboratory in less than 15 years.
Did anyone vote for this? No?
Get your kids out of public schools. Grandparents may need to help, but get your kids out of public schools.
Inculcating abnormality ping
Sure is good to hear that California has nothing more important to worry about.
no longer are we a society where laws are made up per the will of the majority...we are a society where a few write the laws and the majority are bond to them....it is only our own faults and it will not change until we stand up and change it....
Destroying the family - that’s the goal.
They can have anti-bullying curriculum without it being pro-gay.
As someone else said, you can teach kids not to bully the fat kid without ‘celebrating obesity’.
California parents - Sacrifice the two incomes, the expensive home, the two car payments and do something for your children - homeschool them.
How do they know Tango makes three? It’s not like they can add.
Private schools are the answer. They could also save millions by having families feed their own kids.
I remember when “3 is a magic number” was drilled into my brain by PBS. I’ll never get that tune out of my head.
With this, I fear for our civilization.
I’ts just too creepy.
PS. When additional female penguins were added to the zoo. They went back to women. You see, it wasn’t about sex at all. In fact single male penguins have been known to sit on a rock as if it were an egg.
