Clinton Urges School Diversity Training
WASHINGTON, DC - All those who thought that the Federal Government was barred from deciding curriculum for the public schools should hear what Bill Clinton is saying. On Nov. 10, the Clinton Administration endorsed grade school "diversity" training to encourage students to be tolerant of minorities, homosexuals and the disabled, and announced that the Federal Government will be specifying the materials to be used.
"Children have to be taught hate," Clinton said at a White House conference on hate crimes. "We want to teach them a different way." Continuing, Clinton said: "The Education and the Justice Departments will distribute to every school district in the country a hate crimes resource guide. The guide will direct educators to the materials they can use to teach tolerance and mutual respect. And also the Justice Department is launching a web site where younger students can learn about prejudice and the harm it causes."
Several top Cabinet officers then endorsed plans for colleges and schools from kindergarten through 12th grade to implement diversity programs in order to provide tolerance education. "Find out what your schools are doing in diversity programs," Atty. Gen. Janet Reno said.
"Diversity" has become a code word for implementing the homosexual agenda in the schools. The National Education Association (NEA) passes a resolution every year endorsing "diversity" education, and the text of the resolution makes clear that it means "acceptance" of differences in sexual orientation.
