"Perhaps you can quote or show that “state charter”? The school has a state charter and the foundation by law has it’s bylaws but what is the charter of the Center that prohibits “non-secular” activities?"

Either you are sloppy or intentionally misrepresenting my statement;

1) There is no "state charter". There is the CA constitution and CA state law. You can find it all at

2) The California Science Center is NOT a school.

Your comment, my caps.

“The California Science Center relies on California General Fund support. By California state law the CHARTER of the CSC prohibits nonsecular activities and programming. This mandates “viewpoint discrimination”. AND

“1) There is no “state charter. There is the CA constitution and CA state law.” 2) The California Science Center is NOT a school.”

That's good since I didn't say it was a school.

“You can find it all at";
I'm not going to wade through the entire California legal code to find what you say is there but cannot produce.

However a 30 second search of google produced:

“Science Center School
Learn about the elementary school located on our campus.....

Imagine an elementary school with all of the resources a teacher or parent could ever want. It’s located near world-class museums, a major university and a state-of-the-art teacher professional development center. The school features an integrated curriculum emphasizing science, mathematics and the use of technology. Its teachers are fully credentialed with a demonstrated ability to make science and math engaging and accessible to their students. And it’s not a magnet school but, rather, a neighborhood school for underserved groups of children and their parents. While such a school seems like a dream, it is a dream that has become reality in South Los Angeles, the result of more than a decade of collaborative work between the California Science Center and the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD).”

PS...IT'S A CHARTER SCHOOL! On the grounds!

I don't think it's me that is sloppy or misrepresenting.
