Two current school board members in the town just to the south of us got primaried, largely because they wouldn't say "no" to CRT.

The revolt is beginning!

Scottish Govt Guidance: Schools Can Assist Gender Changes from Age Four, Not Tell Parents

Scotland’s left-separatist Scottish National Party (SNP) government has issued official guidance to schools saying they can assist supposedly transgender pupils to change their gender identity from the age of four, without telling their parents.

In a 70-page document backed by controversial LGBTQ groups such as Stonewall, Scottish schools are advised by Scotland’s devolved administration — roughly equivalent to a state government in the United States — that children can “come out” as transgender “at any age”, and should be supported to change their gender identity even from the earliest year of primary school, where the youngest pupils are aged four or five.

“A transgender young person may not have told their family about their gender identity,” warns the guidance, as reported by The Telegraph.

“Inadvertent disclosure could cause needless stress for the young person or could put them at risk and breach legal requirements. Therefore, it is best to not share information with parents or carers without considering and respecting the young person’s views and rights,” it adds — essentially telling schools they should keep parents in the dark about helping their children “transition” unless the child in question says otherwise.

The guidance also suggests that supposedly transgendered pupils should be allowed to use the lavatory or changing room of their choice, despite potential safeguarding issues for biological females — particularly at high schools, where the youngest pupils would be pre-teens and the oldest over 18.

For Women Scotland campaign co-director Marion Calder described the guidance as “really, really worrying” and accused the Scottish Government of “pushing” a “dangerous ideology”.

“It shows a failure in safeguarding and a removal of parental rights. It used to be commonly understood that children should be able to play and experiment with gender roles, with clothing, their likes and dislikes,” she said in comments quoted by The Telegraph.

“Those children are now being encouraged on to a medical pathway, potentially for the rest of their lives. We should not be teaching children, and especially primary school children, that you can change sex, because you cannot change sex,” she warned.

Scotland’s Deputy First Minister, John Swinney, boasted last year that an SNP-led Scotland was becoming “the first country in the world to have LGBTI inclusive education embedded within the curriculum” for schools.

         “Anti-racism is the active dismantling of systems, privileges, and everyday practices that reinforce and normalize the contemporary dimensions of white dominance. This, of course, also involves a critical understanding of the history of whiteness in America.”

           Yep. That's what preschoolers need to be taught throughout the day all right.

Scholars Insist Preschoolers Must Be Taught 'Antiracism' 'Throughout the Day'

What kind of education do preschoolers need?

A scholarly quartet has ideas, and they recently revealed them online.

For the Summer 2021 edition of the National Association for the Education of Young Children's (NAEYC) journal, science was dutifully dropped.

First of all, what is “antiracism“?

UCLA law professor and Intersectionality Matters! podcast host Kimberlé Crenshaw helps out:

“Anti-racism is the active dismantling of systems, privileges, and everyday practices that reinforce and normalize the contemporary dimensions of white dominance. This, of course, also involves a critical understanding of the history of whiteness in America.”

“The focus on racial equity following the murder of George Floyd,” the NAEYC piece begins, “has resulted in conversations about racism that were unheard of less than a year ago.”

And now, the four figure, an antiracist approach must be enacted and sustained.

The essay asserts teachers need to “understand the racial history of early childhood programs and the racism in current early childhood programs.”

In the 60’s, society was sick:

An emphasis on “psychopathologic outcomes such as criminalization and teen pregnancy,” the crew contends, “contributed to [a] deficit lens of Black children and communities.”

A major error: Systemic racism was ignored.

           “We’re scrambling to keep up with this,” Littlejohn said, “and when you do an internet search, the bulk of what comes up is to affirm your kid or they will commit suicide. That’s their whole argument. Suicide is being weaponized to bully parents into affirming their children even if they know it’s the wrong choice for their child."

Social Media, Schools, and the Secret Rise of Transgender Children: The New ‘Social Contagion’ 

In the midst of the isolation that ensued due to COVID-19 quarantines and school lockdowns, some parents have described how a new “social contagion” has quietly crept into homes to infect and transform their children. It was given a name in a 2018 study: rapid-onset gender dysphoria.

Now, parents are sounding the alarm.

In September 2020, January Littlejohn of Tallahassee, Florida, was shocked when her 13-year-old daughter inadvertently revealed a secret. School officials wanted to know which bathroom she preferred to use “as a result of her requested name change.” More shocking was her discovery of a plan devised during a private meeting between her daughter and school officials without her knowledge or consent.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“In many ways, this has become a new source of teenage rebellion, but the long-term consequences are much more severe.”

Littlejohn, who is a licensed mental health counselor, says that adopted school policies regarding transgender students reinforces the confusion they may be experiencing and affirms in their adolescent brain that they were born the wrong gender.” 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When asked about “expectations regarding rooming for any overnight trips” with the school, the minor child was allowed to decide she would “be comfortable rooming w/either sex.” This opened the door to having the Littlejohn’s daughter rooming with teenage boys on overnight school trips without the parents’ knowledge.

“The purpose of this document is to create a shared understanding about the ways in which a student’s authentic gender will be accounted for and supported at school,” Part B of the form states.

“We’re scrambling to keep up with this,” Littlejohn said, “and when you do an internet search, the bulk of what comes up is to affirm your kid or they will commit suicide. That’s their whole argument. Suicide is being weaponized to bully parents into affirming their children even if they know it’s the wrong choice for their child.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s a social contagion like anorexia, affecting vulnerable teens. But it’s being celebrated and it’s spreading like wildfire.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“I began researching feverishly, trying to figure out what happened to my daughter,” the Portland mother said. “I found the diagnosis of ‘rapid-onset gender dysphoria’ and began reading relentlessly. What became abundantly clear was that my daughter had been indoctrinated somehow.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“I then find out they are actually teaching this rhetoric at her public school,” the Portland mom said.

         "Who normalizes sex acts between fourth graders? I’ll tell you who. Pedofiles...They canceled Dr. Seuss but this is good for children."

"We Sucked Eachother's D***s" - Mother Reads Sexually Explicit School Book To Board Members

“We Sucked Eachother’s D***s” – Mother Reads Sexually Explicit School Book To Board Members

A concerned mother brought a school book to her school board to address the sexual harassment and vulgar language that is being pushed on her children.

This specific book references 10-year old fourth-graders engaging in homosexual actions and using language like “his little salamander between my fourth-grade fingers rapidly engorging with blood”.

It also used the word “f**k” 44 times and “sh*t” 41 times before page 66, according to the mom.

This is my son, Cameron. He attends Leander High School and I’m going to explain to you the book that he received but Mr. McKay, I pray you are a man of your word. Last week I asked my children if I could check the books that they’ve picked up from the school. My son picked up this brand new book from the shelves in class, “Lawn Boy”. He was under the impression it was about a kid that ends up with a gig mowing the grass at Disneyland. I’d like to share a few quotes with you.

On page 19, “Not that it really matters, in fourth grade at a church youth group meeting out in the bushes, I touched Doug Goebbels d*ck, and he touched mine. In fact, there was even some mouths involved.” Next one, page 91, “What if I told you I touched another guy’s d*ck? What if I told you I sucked it? I was 10 years old, but it’s true. I put Doug Goebbels’ d*ck in my mouth. I was in fourth grade, it was no big deal. He sucked mine too. And you know what, it wasn’t terrible.” Page 174,

~~~~~~~~~~~~

What sort of diversity are you intending to teach my child with material like this? In addition, I’ll share with you the exceptional quality of vocabulary, I stopped counting on page 66 After 44 f**ks, and 41 sh*ts. The depravity of the content on the shelves in our schools cannot be mitigated with policy.

~~~~~~~~~~

What sort of educational environment do you think the plethora of sexually graphic books selections create for my children or for any child for that matter? 

I won’t go into my fourth-grade daughter but we don’t, this is not a thing for fourth graders. Who normalizes sex acts between fourth graders? I’ll tell you who. Pedofiles. So it’s fortuitous that you invited the Leander police department to visit tonight so that we can talk about…

They canceled Dr. Seuss but this is good for children.

Majority of Hispanic and Black parents support removing CRT from schools

The survey showed a bipartisan consensus surrounding the removal of race-based theories being presented to students. In a recent survey conducted by the Manhattan Institute, a majority of Hispanic and Black parents oppose critical race theory being taught in public schools.

The institute, alongside Echelon Insights, surveyed adults from 20 metropolitan cities, spanning from Washington, D.C. to Las Vegas. The survey asked a series of wide-ranging questions concerning policy issues that impact their communities, one of them being CRT being taught in public school systems.

According to the data presented in the survey, there appears to be a bipartisan consensus surrounding the removal of race-based theories being presented to students. Approximately 66% of parents oppose teaching CRT, as compared to the overall population, which stands at 54%.

When breaking down the respondents' answers based by race, there appears to be a more concise picture, with 54% of black parents supporting the removal of CRT-based curriculum. The support for its removal only rises when among Hispanics (61%) and white parents (73%).

         "The school board’s reaction was ironic: It silenced her, citing that there were children in the room...Multiple attendees told The Daily Wire the claim that there were children in the late night board meeting was false."

https://www.dailywire.com/news/watch-mom-reads-graphic-gay-porn-found-in-school-library-to-school-board

A Virginia mom found that books graphically depicting pedophilia were in her child’s school as part of its commitment to diversity and inclusion — so she read from them, verbatim, to the school board.

 
The school board’s reaction was ironic: It silenced her, citing that there were children in the room.

“After seeing a September 9th school board meeting in Texas on pornography in schools, I decided to check the titles at my child’s high school, Fairfax High School. The books were available, and we checked them out. Both of these books include pedophilia, sex between men and boys,” Stacy Langton said, holding two books. “The illustrations include fellatio, sex toys, masturbation, and violent nudity.”

“I can’t wait to have your c*** in my mouth. I am going to give you the blowjob of your life, and then I want you inside me.”

“What if I told you I touched another guy’s d***? What if I told you I sucked it? I was ten years old, but it’s true. I sucked Doug Goble’s d***, the real estate guy, and he sucked mine too.”

“This is not an oversight at Fairfax High School—” she said, when one school member made a motion indicating that her mic should be cut, and another board member cut her off.

“I’m sorry, there are children in the audience here,” the board member said.

The mother did not back down. “Do not interrupt my time! I will stand here until my time is restored and my time is finished. These books are in stock and available in the libraries …”

The school board interrupted her again, saying “For high school students, ma’am!”

Virtually the entire crowd erupted in jeers at the school board’s efforts to silencing a parent. Multiple attendees told The Daily Wire the claim that there were children in the late night board meeting was false.

Before the buzzer counting down Langton’s allotted two minutes even buzzed, the school board began talking over her, saying “Our next speaker is …”

A plainclothes security guard then approached the microphone and tried to get her to move by lying that he was the next speaker, according to video filmed by Asra Nomani. “It’s my turn to speak and I was next,” he said.

After her mic was cut off, Langton spoke loudly, reading the name of a law that she said the school board was violating. It says “It shall be unlawful for any person knowingly to… circulate… any notice or advertisement of any obscene item,” as Nomani, a parental advocacy expert with Parents Defending Education, wrote on her Substack.

All of the members except Karl Frisch, Laura Jane Cohen (whose child is transgender and who frequently redirects educational issues to gay issues), and Abrar Omeish, who opposed a resolution honoring the victims of 9/11, fled the stage, as the audience chanted “Go to jail!”

        "Their analysis shows that 1.45 million children left traditional public schools. Charter schools gained 237,000 students in the same period. The difference is made up by families choosing private schools or homeschooling...Others became aware, thanks to the proliferation of remote classes, that curriculum taught in public schools did not match their values."

Voting With Their Feet: Parents Taking Their Kids Out of Traditional Public Schools in Astounding Numbers

A new report from the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools shows what a great advertisement American Federation of Teachers (AFT) President Randi Weingarten and her more radical members provided for school choice. After more than a year of school closures, Zoom classes, and battles over critical race theory, parents are increasingly taking their children out of public schools. The study looked at enrollment shifts between the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years.

Their analysis shows that 1.45 million children left traditional public schools. Charter schools gained 237,000 students in the same period. The difference is made up by families choosing private schools or homeschooling. The researchers noted that public school enrollment declines began years ago in many cities and states. Some of the loss was due to demographic changes and population decline. However, the pandemic appears to have accelerated the switch to public school alternatives.

~~~~~~~~~~~

The 7% growth experienced in charter schools was the largest seen since 2014. In the states they analyzed, the children moving to charter schools came from every racial and socioeconomic background. Arizona became the first state to have 20% of public school children enrolled in charter schools. Previously, only Washington, D.C., had reached that milestone. In California, public schools saw declines in nearly every racial subgroup, with substantial increases in Asian, Filipino, and Hispanic students transferring to charters.

The researchers say the pandemic was the reason for many of the changes. Some parents they spoke with were looking for an educational setting that fits their family’s pandemic experience. Gem Innovation Schools in Idaho expanded learning options and grade levels to meet the shifting restrictions. As parents shifted between the office and remote work, Gem allowed parents to select online or in-person schooling once a quarter.

Others became aware, thanks to the proliferation of remote classes, that curriculum taught in public schools did not match their values. In Florida, a father of five, Matt Mohler, observed his school-age children struggling with remote work and worried the curriculum would not meet their needs. The new Tallahassee Charter School opened in 2020, and after meeting with school staff, he moved his children there. Mohler shared, “Within the first week, my [then] first grader came home reciting the preamble of the Constitution. And I was blown away at the progress he was making in such a short amount of time.”

The involvement of parents in their children’s education may be the most positive outcome from the pandemic. Parents across the nation are demanding a say in the curriculum taught in their public schools. They are no longer content to leave it to so-called “experts” who seem intent on creating activists instead of skilled workers, innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders.

SICKENING: California Governor Newsom Signs Bills That Enable Children to Hide Sex Operations and Abortions From Their Parents

On Wednesday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed two bills into law that would help children be able to get certain medical procedures – such as sex operations and abortions – without their parent’s knowledge or consent.

One of the bills – AB-1184 – prohibits health insurers from requiring authorization from a child’s parents before they are able to get a procedure. The bill also makes it illegal for any communications, information, or receipts to be shared with the parents unless the child authorizes it to be disclosed. 

The sickening new law is set to take effect in July of next year.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Once again, it is simply another example of a leftist, Orwellian made-up term that is meant to twist the language – It means child.

 “Protected individual” means any adult insured covered under a health insurance policy or a minor who can consent to a health care service without the consent of a parent or legal guardian, pursuant to state or federal law.

The bill doesn’t just make these life-altering procedures more available to children who have no faculty to make the decision to get them, it also mandates that insurance providers notify their policyholders that they can request a “confidential communication.”

“This bill would require a health care service plan to notify subscribers and enrollees and a health insurer to notify insureds that they may request a confidential communication in a specified format and how to make the request, and would require a health care service plan and health insurer to provide the information in a specified manner, including on the internet website of the health care service plan or health insurer.”

The other bill – AB-1356 – makes it a crime for anyone to post personal information, including photos, of any provider, patient, employee, or volunteer of a reproductive healthcare facility in the state. People who are found guilty will face up to a year behind bars and a fine of up to $10,000.

This other legislation also makes it a crime for people to “videotape, film, photograph, or record by electronic means” any person associated with a reproductive health facility inside their property or within 100 feet of the entrance.

This bill would also make it a crime, within 100 feet of the entrance to or within a reproductive health services facility, to intentionally videotape, film, photograph, or record by electronic means a reproductive health services patient, provider, or assistant, as defined, with the specific intent to intimidate a person from becoming or remaining a reproductive health services patient, provider, or assistant.

Newsom signing the pair of bills comes at a questionable time. The text of the law had been in place since February of this year, which means he could have easily signed it at any point before now – It’s no surprise that he waited until after pulling a fast one in the recently rigged California recall election to sign this radical law.
