Far too many in our country—from elected officials to school boards to teachers unions — answer that question with “yes!”
Radical gender ideology curricula and policies have been introduced into classrooms, including locally. According to a recent report, more than 4,000 schools across the country have implemented policies that divide caring parents and their confused, vulnerable children.
School Boards in Loudoun and Frederick County have been confronted with the fact that sexually inappropriate and racist books are in the schools right now.
Schools are seeing local walkouts today as some schools are teaching students to rebel against their parents and God's design for their bodies.
Many School districts across the nation are sidelining parents.
Let me be perfectly clear, I side with parents.
Policies based on gender ideology—some with secret “gender transition” plans—actively direct teachers and school staff to use a student’s requested name and pronouns during school hours, and then hide these efforts by using the student’s proper name and pronouns when speaking with parents.
You can hear both sides of this issue in this radio interview between me and Del. Marcus Simon (D-Falls Church) on WAMU.
Please help turn this around by supporting Governor Youngkin's revised policy that protects kids by keeping parents informed.
I need you to go here and voice support for the revised, parent-friendly policy.
Here is a link to a discussion where medical professionals apparently see mutilating the healthy bodies of children as a money making opportunity.
Back in May, I confronted the Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) superintendent and school board with a list of highly inappropriate books found in FCPS libraries. To the best of my knowledge, the books are still there and many parents are not aware. I want parents to be involved and informed, especially on delicate subjects.
The Virginia Department of Education's new draft policy is logical, orderly and respects parents rights through commonsense boundaries. The old policy, in contrast, divides families by allowing potentially serious, life-changing and irreversible decisions to be hidden from students’ families.
Yesterday, Democrat activists in Virginia encouraged students to walk out of classes, and apparently some schools were complicit in allowing kids' political activism against Gov. Youngkin and resistance to parental guidance to interfere with their education. As noted in this article, Governor Youngkin has spoken clearly on this recently:
"They [school officials] think that parents have no right to know what your child is discussing with their teacher or their counselor, particularly when some of the most important topics that a child may want to discuss are being determined. What's their name? What pronoun will they use? How are they going to express their gender? This is a decision that bureaucrats in Fairfax County believe that they should be able to make without telling parents.”
It is fair to ask these questions:
If schools are allowed to block parents from being involved, things could get out of control fast. How far will schools go? How far is too far when it comes to concealing one's biological identity?
Let's remember the true victims of the Gender Identity contagion.
