SAFE?! I don’t think so when I read the following!
‘Springfield police are investigating a report from Kenwood Elementary School that allegedly involved several students and a racial incident.
Officers were called to the school around 10 a.m. Monday about an incident that happened Friday during recess on the playground, according to the police report, which states assault and menacing as the potential offenses.
The school principal told officers that a group of Black students gathered several white students on a spot of the playground “and forced them to state, ‘Black Lives Matter,’ against their will,” the report stated.
The principal said a few of the students who tried to avoid the situation were “chased down and escorted, dragged or carried” back to the spot on the playground, and one student was punched in the head by one of the suspects, according to the report.
The group of students also reportedly recorded the students who were forced to make the statement.
There is so much going on in higher (or should it be called lower) education I hope the following helps you to navigate what is happening on university and college campuses from THE COLLEGE FIX https://www.thecollegefix.com/.
‘Sources tell us that Tennessee school teachers are being trained to use the preferred pronouns of students and that they must keep that knowledge hidden from parents in some cases.
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 states that “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
For 50 years the definition of sex meant biological sex. But the Biden Administration is proposing changes to Title IX that would make the definition of sex include sexual orientation and gender identity.
These changes will:
– Allow biological males to participate in girls-only sports and school activities.
– Make bathrooms, locker rooms, and overnight field trip housing available based solely on “gender identity,” not on someone’s biological sex.
– Apply sexual harassment rules to students and teachers who “misgender” another student or teacher. This means that if someone refers to someone by their biological sex (instead of their gender identity) or doesn’t use the person’s “preferred pronouns,” they will be punished for sexual harassment.
– Encourage schools to hide a student’s gender transition from their parents.
These proposed Title IX rules threaten free speech rights. By rewriting federal regulations, the Biden Education Department will punish teachers and students for exercising their right to free speech on campus.
Using the “wrong” pronoun to refer to another student could land a child or teacher in hot water, facing a possible Title IX investigation and punishment. Sources confirm to us that at least one student in a Tennessee school last year has been on the receiving end of school discipline for not using a student’s preferred pronouns.
The Defense of Freedom Institute has a portal where concerned parents and citizens can write to the Federal Department of Education about the proposed changes to Title IX.
Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS) has a policy that states it is a violation of personal rights for any student, teacher, administrator or other school district employee to violate the personal rights of others which includes “intimidation, harassment/hazing, physical force or threat of physical force against all persons… motivated either in whole or in part by hostility to their real or perceived race, ethnic background, religious belief, gender (including gender identity), age, disability or sexual orientation…”
The Metro Nashville Board of Education passed a resolution last spring “affirming the physical, mental, emotional support of all students, staff, parents and stakeholders regardless of gender identity, gender expression or sexual orientation.”
MNPS also teaches about gender identity in their Lifetime Wellness Course which includes Sexual Health Education.
When school boards promote filth what may one then expect from the students? Garbage in; Garbage out!
‘Waukee Northwest High School has another book containing sexually explicit messaging. The district previously decided to pull “Gender Queer” from the school library due to its vulgar content, which Google calls adult sexual content and Facebook says violates its community standards for sexual activity.
These people are unsaved and totally NUTS! ‘A Virginia school district will suspend students from fourth grade on up for using the wrong pronouns to designate transgender peers, igniting a fierce backlash from parents during a Thursday school board meeting.
The Fairfax County School Board voted eight to four to approve guidelines that will discipline students who engage in “malicious misgendering,” “malicious deadnaming,” or use a slur based on a classmate’s “gender identity,” “gender expression,” or “sexual orientation.” The board approved the rules as part of next year’s school handbook. Four board members who objected did so for reasons unrelated to the suspension provision, preferring to debate a run-of-the-mill cell phone policy for an hour after fielding heated questions from parents.
The meeting showcased the power liberal school boards wield in America, as the members approved the rules over strenuous objections from parents on constitutional grounds and potentially under threat of lawsuits. While one board member acknowledged the concerns, another board member, Karl Frisch, evaded questions, saying the changes had already been implemented last year, though parents pointed out the school district quietly implemented them during the pandemic. A third, Abrar Omeish, floated the idea of nixing the public question period at the next meeting.
It equally showed parents’ frustration over their lack of influence, and their willingness to pull their children out of public schools due to their ideological drift. In a charged session that stretched late into the evening, many mothers questioned the legality of the new handbook rules as well as their necessity, citing learning loss for their children during the pandemic. One father told the Washington Free Beacon he would withdraw his kids from Fairfax County Public Schools if the “misgendering” rules passed. He mentioned two other parents he knew who had said the same.
Barbara Eckman is a mother of four boys, two of whom are gay. She told the school board she will homeschool her children now to avoid “activist policies” and redress learning gaps, saying she is having to do “the job that Fairfax County couldn’t.”
“I am both a loving mother and an ally to the Pride community,” Eckman said. “The fact that I do not support overwhelming, overreaching activist policies that violate First Amendment rights has nothing to do with how I feel about the gay and transgender community. … I have liberal and conservative friends, and when I discuss your proposed policies—the co-ed family life education and transgender unit in fourth grade, the potential suspensions for misgendering and deadnaming for kids as early as fourth grade—they’re all astonished. So this leads me to one question: Who are you really representing?”
