    Hart District Student Questions FAIR Education Act Instruction In SCV

    A Canyon High School senior is asking Hart district officials to speed up their process for including the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans into Santa Clarita Valley junior high and high school social studies classes. Andrew Taban, 17, is involved with several advocacy groups, and spoke at several Hart district board meetings after the topic was brought up among several student groups, he said. “When you see someone like you in history, you feel like there’s a chance for you,” Taban said. “It also gives a normality to who you are.” The William S. Hart Union High School District is in compliance with the FAIR Education Act, said Vicki Engbrecht, Hart district assistant superintendent for educational services. The Hart district oversees about 22,000 public junior high and high school students in the Santa Clarita Valley.
