A student in a San Diego County school was told that her report on assassinated gay rights leader Harvey Milk was akin to "sexual education" and a "sensitive topic". The school placed restrictions on the student's report saying she first had to receive permission from her fellow classmates parents to present. Only after the principle sent letters to parents notifying them of the "sensitive" subject matter was the student allowed to present her presentation during a lunch recess. The ACLU reports that the 6th grade student's free speech rights have been violated and is demanding that the school apologize, clarify their sex education policy and allow the student to give her presentation in class.
