One of the most powerful forces in public education is actively promoting transgenderism to children as young as kindergartners.
Earlier this month, National Education Association President Lily Eskelsen Garcia joined Sarah McBride of the Human Right Campaign in reading “I Am Jazz” to a kindergarten class at Ashlawn Elementary School in Arlington, Virginia. The NEA is the largest teachers’ union in the nation. The Human Right Campaign is the largest LGBT lobby in the U.S.
According to the Washington Post, he event took place in conjunction with the NEA’s Read Across America Day.
McBride, who was born a biological male but now identifies as female, read lines from the book, such as ““I have a girl brain but a boy body. This is called transgender. I was born this way.”
Cathy Ruse, director of the Center for Human Dignity at the Family Research Council, says it was “completely outrageous” to read such a book to a kindergarten class. But she says there’s more than what the Washington Post reported.
“The parents were not fully notified and they were not asked permission to have their kids in this event,” said Ruse, noting that notice of the event only went to parents in English, whereas many of the families in that neighborhood do not speak English as their first language.
Listen to the full podcast to hear Ruse explain the significance of the National Education Association promoting this issue to young kids, why she believes activists are trying to smother any dissent on these issues, and what she sees as the proper way to approach any students struggling with their sex or gender.
