Edmond Heatley who is a finalist for the vacant post of superintendent of Berkeley’s schools wrote a memo in 2008 urging Chino Valley’s Board of Education to approve a resolution in support of Proposition 8--he wrote a memo stating:
“If Proposition 8 is not successful, then school districts throughout California will inevitably be required to adjust their policies and curriculum to align with the Court’s recent redefinition of marriage.
“This resolution also recognizes that the ideal learning environment for children is within a nurturing home governed jointly by a mother and a father as primary educators of their children.”
This man does not represent Berkeley and should not be considered for role of Superintendent. This petition seeks to advise the Berkeley Unified School Board to reconsider him.
