First-grade field trip in San Francisco

To those who falsely claim that same-sex marriage will not change anything in the schools, here’s the latest abomination proving otherwise:

Class surprises lesbian teacher on her wedding day:

A group of San Francisco first-graders took an unusual field trip to City Hall on Friday to toss rose petals on their just-married lesbian teacher – putting the public school children at the center of a fierce election battle over the fate of same-sex marriage.

The 18 Creative Arts Charter School students took a Muni bus and walked a block at noon to toss rose petals and blow bubbles on their just-married teacher Erin Carder and her wife Kerri McCoy, giggling and squealing as they mobbed their teacher with hugs.

Mayor Gavin Newsom, a friend of a friend, officiated.

A parent came up with the idea for the field trip – a surprise for the teacher on her wedding day.

“She’s such a dedicated teacher,” said the school’s interim director Liz Jaroflow.

But there was a question of justifying the field trip academically. Jaroflow decided she could.

“It really is what we call a teachable moment,” Jaroflow said, noting the historic significance of same-sex marriage and related civil rights issues. “I think I’m well within the parameters.”

  1. One more reason to weep for the utter collapse of the Parochial school system that has retreated to the boutique status of suburban safehavens from public school systems for people who can afford it.

  2. I really oughtta post about this. NOthing “private” is ever private, is it? Or perhaps that’s an exaggeration. How many cups of coffee I have in the privacy of my kitchen probably really is private, but lots of things that people say are just “private” really aren’t.

  3. All parents are required to approve class field trips, whether they go to the Post Office or to an art exhibit.

    If you don’t want your kid to go, don’t sign the permission slip.

    Why don’t we just have the teacher make a “kick me” sign, tape it to the kid’s back and get it over with.

  6. This event is utterly disgusting to put it mildly. Subjecting young children to what God describes as an abomination. Two women nor two men can produce any offspring (wow, did we not realize that), it is nothing more than public sin in the worst sort. The teacher and those responsible for the field trip should be eliminated from the school system.
