metta8 saidNYC 5th-grader to read gay marriage essay
"NEW YORK, June 16 (UPI) -- A New York City fifth-grader can read his contest-winning essay on gay marriage at a school assembly but parents can pull out their children, an official says
This really shows how shitty news has become. And this is what happens when you fire all your reporters and work with minimum staff. I've read numerous variations of this story from different so-called-news sources. The story is reported variously as this essay having nothing to do with the contest or that this essay was the subject of the contest. This is beyond stupid already.
Meanwhile, also beyond stupid, will the school board be issuing future fair warnings to parents to pull children out of classrooms when heterosexual marriage will be discussed?
