CA Educ Code Section 51755

The Legislature finds and declares as follows:


The discovery of nuclear power has profound implications for our lives and society.


Current research has demonstrated that many of our children today fear the prospect of nuclear war, and it is now recognized that their frequent lack of motivation, particularly in school, is substantially influenced by further fears that there will be no future for themselves, their families, their communities, and their nation.


Some polls have shown that the majority of high school students believe that nuclear war in the next decade is inevitable.


If left unchecked, this lack of motivation and the feelings of helplessness could prove to be as devastating to American society as war itself.


It is the inherent right of our children to pursue their educational objectives free from the immobilizing threat of nuclear war and their own annihilation.
