SACRAMENTO—State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson released the following statement, urging teachers and students to take a moment today to observe Harvey Milk Day:
“One of California’s greatest strengths is—and always has been—our diversity. We are fortunate to live in a state where there is such great potential for the contributions of all to be acknowledged and appreciated.
“Harvey Milk helped blaze this path while he was alive, and it’s a path we continue to walk now more than three decades after his death. It leads us all the way from California’s classrooms to our nation’s White House.
