This Fresno school’s ‘modern families’ want Ashjian out after LGBT comments

SEPTEMBER 06, 2017 11:37 AM


Alana Franklin stood up at Dailey Elementary Charter School with a message for Fresno Unified School Board President Brooke Ashjian: She’s not going away. 

Franklin, who identifies as queer, has a kindergartner at Dailey and is pregnant with a child who will also likely enroll in the school district. 

“(Ashjian) has the freedom of speech to say whatever he wants but believe me  I will definitely be using my freedom of speech, too,” she said. “And it’s going to be a long 20 years.”

Franklin joined other LGBT families and allies of the Fresno charter school on Tuesday to call for Ashjian to be removed from the school’s board of directors – and the district altogether. The International Baccalaureate school prides itself on inclusion and diversity, something that Dailey’s so-called “modern families” say Ashjian does not value.
