There is an interesting feud in San Francisco after first-grade students to the wedding of their Lesbian teacher’s wedding. Opponents of same-sex marriage object that this is a major religious and political controversy and that the event (where students threw rose petals on teacher Erin Carder and her now wife Kerri McCoy) was “indoctrination.”

Nevertheless, Liz Jaroslow, the Creative Arts Charter School’s interim director, insisted “It really is what we call a teachable moment. I think I’m well within the parameters.” I don’t see that way when the matter is part of the coming election and opposed by so many parents on religious and political grounds.
