The Right's Public-School Campaign 1992-1993
(From a report compiled by People for the American Way.)
- Two-thirds of the religious-right's 56 candidates won in San Diego in 1990. In 1992, that number was down to one-third, largely because of organized opposition.
- In Kirkwood, Mo., one candidate explained that homosexuals "can't produce children. They're like parasites."
- In New York City, the Christian Coalition campaigned for 288 seats on 32 boards. During the election, they denied fielding candidates but declared victory when 66 won.
- In Lake County, Fla., the new board proposed that American culture be taught as "superior to other foreign or historic cultures."
