    “What are they teaching our kids these days?â€

    The Morgan Hill Unified School District is now teaching our children the following:

    “The 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms does NOT include the right to keep and bear handguns.â€
    "There is no place in our society for handguns."
    “All small firearms should be banned by law.â€
    These are quotes from an English class assignment at Britton Middle School in Morgan Hill. They are part of the standard curriculum in use by several teachers at the school for years. A copy of the actual course material is shown below.

    When questioned about this political indoctrination of children, the response of the School District was:

    The English Department instructors at Britton have met to discuss this matter and conclude that these statements are “part of an effective supplementary writing kit – and not an attempt to advocate for gun control in any manner.â€

    The Executive Council of the Morgan Hill Federation of Teachers (the teachers’ union) fully supports the position of the Britton English teachers.

    The Morgan Hill Unified School District Board of Directors refuses to agendize this matter for discussion or to answer any questions about MHUSD policy on political indoctrination of children.

    The official response by the District Superintendent’s office is: “Here, fill out our standard complaint form.â€

    What can you do?

    Contact the Morgan Hill Unified School District Board, express your displeasure with this curriculum and inquire about district policy on political/controversial subject matter taught in their schools.

    Call the MHUSD District Superintendent, Dr. McKennan, and request a copy of the complaint form and the policy for the complaint process. Fill it in and submit it.

    Members of the School Board are elected to office. If they are not properly educating our students, consider running for their offices or supporting those who will better handle controversial, political subject matter in Morgan Hill Schools.

    Students are taught English writing skills by studying this example of a “good paragraphâ€:

    Let the Morgan Hill Unified School District know how you feel:
