The State of California is sinking into a financial hole dug by decades of big spending. So the legislature . . . passes a gay history mandate:

A bill to require California public schools to teach the historical accomplishments of gay men and lesbians passed the state Legislature on Tuesday in what supporters call a first for the nation. . . .

California already requires public schools to teach the contributions made to society by women and by racial and ethnic groups that were historically discriminated against, such as blacks, Latinos and Native Americans.

Supporters of the latest bill said it would simply include gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender individuals in that existing requirement, making it part of the curriculum in history and other social studies classes.

Which begs the question – with all the requirements to set aside time to teach on all those oppressed “minorities,” do California public schools manage to teach adequately on dead straight white men . . . such as the Founding Fathers?

I think we know the answer to that question.
