California group seeks referendum on gay history curriculum

A coalition of pro-family organizations have launched an effort, StopSB48.com, to repeal the law recently approved by the legislature and signed by Gov. Jerry Brown mandating that public school classes include instruction on the contributions of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals in history.

Pacific Justice Institute is spearheading the effort. They have submitted paperwork with the California Attorney General’s Office to allow the voters the chance to directly repeal SB 48. Once the Attorney General finalizes a title and summary, supporters will have less than 90 days to gather approximately 500,000 valid signatures to place the referendum on the ballot. Until the signature drive is completed, SB 48 is automatically suspended.

One of the biggest concerns nationwide about the possibility of this law staying on the books is its effect on the textbook industry. With California being home to 15 percent of the nation’s K-12 public-school students, manufacturers of textbooks used throughout the country will likely tailor them to California’s requirements. And the new law goes even further, banning “any textbooks…that contain any matter reflecting adversely upon persons on the basis of race and ethnicity, gender, religion, disability, nationality [or] sexual orientation.”
