I assume this school is teaching sex ed by sixth grade. If that's the case, I'm sure those same kids already know what "gay" means. So what's with THIS?
"Theresa Grace, principal of Mt. Woodsen Elementary School, which Natalie attends, decided that before Natalie's fellow sixth graders could learn about Harvey Milk's life and death, they'd need permission from their parents."
Nobody asked MY permission when our school district forced my children to watch the freaking OJ trial! Please. Because if I'd known about it ahead of time, no way would I have allowed it.
I'd have let them stay home those days and read a few banned books.
