Dr. Stan Wasbin, a Capistrano Unified School District parent, asked the board of trustees Monday, January 7, what their stance was regarding the Fair, Accurate, Inclusive and Respectful Education Act, a 2011 state law that requires public schools to incorporate gay and lesbian history into their social studies curriculums.
