The William S. Hart Union High School District has failed to bring the F.A.I.R. (Fair, Accurate, Inclusive, Respectful) Education Act to our district even though it went into effect on January 1, 2012. We would like to see the board finally implement the F.A.I.R. Education Act into their teachings.
Why is this important?
The bill's purpose is to amend the education code to require schools to integrate age-appropriate, factual information about social movements, current events, and history about the roles and contributions of people with disabilities and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people into existing social studies and history lessons. It also prevents the State Board of Education from adopting instructional materials that discriminate. This is important to the students because it reflects that the district has an interest in all their students, and also does not discriminate against them.
