Effort To Repeal Gay History Law Fails

The group Stop SB48 has been working to repeal a new California law that requires public schools to teach social studies lessons on the contributions of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people, but yesterday it failed to collect the signatures necessary to put the issue on the ballot. That means the law will go into effect on January 1, but Stop SB48 is expected to keep working to repeal the measure in the November 2012 election. If there's one thing that's worth protesting in the U.S., it's kids spending 20 minutes learning about Harvey Milk.
