After their first effort to ban the Education Act allowing a teaching of the gay history in the schools of California because they did not have enough signatures, opponents to this act launches a second effort.
This effort wants to repeal the law which will go into effect on January 1 but they think this time-here that they will succeed in having more than 500,000 signatures to get the issue on the November 2012 ballot.
"Regardless of these political maneuvers, we are already working with students, administrators, teachers and parents to ensure that California schools are prepared to follow the FAIR Education Act on January 1 and present a full, fair and accurate picture of history," Laura Valdez, interim executive director of Gay-Straight Alliance Network, said in a statement.
"Without honest and inclusive classrooms, we cannot expect schools to provide the safe learning environment that all students deserve."
I would like to know who fix the number of signatures which are necessary? Why a few months ago, they need 750.000 signatures and now this is 500.000?
