Under the category of Education legislation there are 8 headings, each with numerous sub categories. CRLC has been watching the sub-categories of Workforce Development, Charter Schools, School-based Health Clinics and Nutrition.

Here is a little run-down on the total activity for Education bills for the two year term, 2010-2012. The final, final count isn’t in yet. The term ended August 31.

  • Total Education bills:   792
  • Chaptered (to date):   170
  • Amended:   620
  • Failed during session:   191
  • Still pending:   40

Of that total there were:

  • Workforce Development:   77. 56 bills authored by Dems, 14 of those chaptered, 4 by Reps. chaptered.
  • Charter Schools:   99, 67 by Dems, 25 enrolled, 22 pending, and 17 failed.

There were also 14 bills submitted by either the Senate or Assembly education Committees themselves, 11 of which were enrolled of which 7 were vetoed.

Here is a listing of those bills that have gone to the governor (enrolled) for his signature, veto or return to author without a signature. He has until the end of September or 30 days from the date of receiving the bill, to act.
Here is a listing of the Education type bills on the Governor’s desk about which CRLC is most concerned.
SB 1140, Mark Leno, (D-SF) Marriage. Would declare that marriage is a personal relation arising out of a civil, and not a religious, contract.

SB 1476, Mark Leno, (D-SF) Parentage. Authorizes a court to designate that a child has a right to more than two parents, if it is in the best interest of the child. The bill relies upon information and date supplied by the U. of San Diego School of Law’s Children’s Advocacy Institute and the National Center for Lesbian Rights along with 11 other stakeholders.

SB 803, Mark DeSaulnier, (D-Concord) Youth Leadership Project. Establishes the Youth Leadership Project under the state Dept of Education. Promotes youth civic engagement through a program called GradNation sponsored by Colin Powell. It is little more than using the state, taxes and the schools, esp. in after school programs to create new community organizers.

SB 993, Kevin DeLeon, (D-LA) School Curriculum: Social Sciences: Bracero Program. This one is already Chaptered. Mandates inclusion of instruction on the Bracero Program in Social Studies and to include information drawn from “personal testimony.”

SCR 18, Carol Liu, (D-Glendale), Public Schools: Pupil, Teacher, and Parent Surveys.
Also chaptered. An SCR means Senate Concurrent Resolution. This is not legislation, but a way to state the will of the legislature. Seeks to protect a source of federal funding for the Ca. School Climate, Health, and Learning Survey (CAL-SCHLS). This is the money that the Dept. of Ed. uses to fund their data reporting to the feds.

AB 1872, Luis Alejo, (D-Salinas) Child Care Facilities: Nutrition. Amended 8 times. Focuses using the state Dept. of Social Services to force family centered day care homes to provide meals and snacks that meet state and federal standards as a licensing condition. This dept. will also be required to develop training and nutrition standards according to federal standards and see that the day care homes are supplied with this information and that the homes are meeting the requirements. This will add to the costs of family day care employees and owners as well as the state, keeping the state busy with additional work.

The California Food Policy Advocates, listed as the source for information and data, a community interest group located on 14th St. in Oakland, Ca. has a board filled with health care employees, law school , environmental, agriculture, obesity prevention type people. Their website brags about all their accomplishments in setting food policies for the state residents and includes having sponsored AB 6 which changed the name of food stamps to CalFresh (federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and of lobbying for federal agriculture and farm bills.

AB 1594, Mike Eng, (D-El Monte), Charter Schools: Pupil Nutrition. Requires Charter Schools to provide one nutritious meal to each needy pupil. Currently Charter Schools are exempt from the laws governing school districts, for the most part, this bill would move Charter Schools under the same requirements as regular public schools regarding nutrition mandates. This places an added burden, expense and inconvenience on charter-schools. As more charter schools open and more students flee the regular public school, Charter Schools fall more and more under the eye of the state and feds.

AB 1856, Tom Ammiano, (D-SF) Foster Care Services: Cultural Competency.
The required initial 12 hours of training to become Foster parents also includes an additional 8 hours of post-placement training annually. This training will now include cultural competency and sensitivity training to the needs of LGBT foster children. The bill went through 8 hearings and was amended only once.

AB 823, Roger Dickinson, (D-Sacto), State Children’s Coordinating Council. Amended 7 times. Under the existing California Early Intervention Services Act, 1987, part of the Federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), designed to provide services and support to families with young infants and toddlers with disabilities or developmental delay now moves forward to assume the right to plan and advise and set policy for every child in the state.

AB 2109, Richard Pan, (D-Sacto) Communicable Disease: Immunization Exemption.
This bill continues to receive great criticism and resistance from parents who are planning a demonstration at the capitol in the next few days. To learn more visit the National Vaccine Information Center.

AB1967, John Perez, (D-LA), Health and Science Education: Organ and Tissue Donation. Mandates inclusion within the curriculum framework on Health and science that courses on the subject of organ procurement and tissue donation be included for senior high students.

Please choose anyone or several of these bills and contact the Governor’s office to urge a NO vote, 916-445-2841, fax 916-558-3160. The Governor claims that he will not be attending the Democrat Convention this week in order to stay home and work on the bills before him.

Take away God, all respect for civil laws, all regard for even the most necessary institutions disappears; justice is scouted; the very liberty that belongs to the law of nature is trodden underfoot; and men go so far as to destroy the very structure of the family, which is the first and firmest foundation of the social structure.
- St. Pius X, Jucunda Sane, March 12, 1904
