Re "Transgender student bill signed" (Capitol & California, Aug. 13): Our Democratic leadership has chosen to sacrifice the innocence and safety of the majority of our children for the selfish desires of a small group.
Common sense and basic decency are mocked. I currently have four children in public schools, with one more to go. My children have contributed positively to their schools and have enjoyed a good education.
But I am increasingly worn down with what our state Democratic politicians mandate for public education in terms of promoting and celebrating immoral values and shunning basic respectful behavior. First, because it is wrong and, second, because it dilutes resources that should be used for core education.
Bills like this will have a combined negative impact on the future and success of California as they erase foundational moral values from our schools, eat up school resources, and drive good families from public education and ultimately our state.
