The pledge cards were produced by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education
Network, or GLSEN, and featured oaths that students would not use "anti-lesbian,
gay, bisexual and transgender language or slurs," that students would intervene
on behalf of homosexual students when possible, and that they would actively
support safer schools efforts. Tara Miller is a kindergarten teacher at
Faith Ringgold School of Arts and Science in Hayward, California. She passed out
the pledge cards to her students, which she then asked them to sign. Peter
LaBarbera, the president of Americans for Truth about
Homosexuality, is outraged at Miller's actions.
In the same report on FoxNews.com, a spokesperson for the school agreed
that the pledge was inappropriate for the kindergarten students and said that
the pledges were meant for middle school and high school students.
