Never say LA Unified doesn’t look out for the kids.
This press release arrived from the district yesterday, so everyone can relax:
L.A. UNIFIED’S STATEMENT ON GRAPHIC IMAGES OF COWS DISTRIBUTED TO STUDENTS DURING ANIMAL ACTIVIST PROTEST
A cow and a calf, part of a mobile classroom provided by the Dairy Council of California, were bought on the campus of Calabash Charter Academy in Woodland Hills last week. This instructional presentation is approved by L.A. Unified, and has been presented previously at the elementary school without incident.
No one at the school, or the District knew that animal activists would give children a comic book containing graphic images inserted of cows with a sore; an infection; chained and covered with fecal matter. The pictures are inappropriate for elementary students.
Principal Esther Gillis would never have authorized the distribution of those pictures or the message that milk is unhealthy. L.A. Unified is committed to providing a safe and respectful environment at our schools.”
