Special Feature December 13th, 2007

On SB 777
By Senator Mark Wyland

“This is another example of something that distracts us from the real issues involved in education, such as the high rate of drop out or falling math and science test scores. It’s too bad that instead of focusing on improving education, the Democrats are more interested in advancing issues that are tangential at best to education. Worse yet, they attack the traditional family in the process of addressing the real issues in education.” – Senator Mark Wyland

Senator Wyland voted no on the bill during the two times it as called for vote on the senate floor.
•••••
Background: SB777, signed into law by Governor Schwarzenegger, will, according to some critics of the bill, result in reverse discrimination against religious students and students with traditional family values.

Chief amongst these critics’ complaints is their argument that their children will be subjected to sexual indoctrination that may run counter to their own family values. They argue that on January 2, 2008, SB777 becomes law and will require all public school instruction and activities to positively portray transsexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality to children as young as kindergarten. Supporters of the bill argue that all the bill does is prevent discrimination against students, or others, who are gay, bisexual, or transgender.

Opponents have organized and are leading a drive calling for parents to boycott schools by withdrawing their children from public schools (thereby denying public schools of education funds) and home schooling. In addition, a petition drive is underway for a referendum to be held in the hope that the people will be able to overturn the law. Petitions are available at:

Calvary Chapel Hidden Valley
2449 S Centre City Parkway
Escondido, CA 92025
Tuesday through Friday 9-5 and Sunday from 8-12
