Here’s another good reason to home-school your kids:
FOX 5 ATLANTA – A controversial sixth-grade homework assignment on sexuality has some parents pushing back against the DeKalb County School District.
It is still unclear if this sixth-grade homework assignment on “identify definitions” is part of a district approve curriculum, but Octavia Parks has a lot of questions.
“Why are they teaching that in school? What does that have to do with life?” Parks said.
Parks said she was shocked when her 12-year-old daughter came home with an assignment on sexuality from a health class at Lithonia middle school on Wednesday.
It has ten questions, asking sixth graders to identify various sexual preferences or identifies like gay, lesbian and transgender.
“We’re talking about a sixth grader who still watches Nickelodeon. I’m not ready to explain what these words are nor what they mean,” said Parks.
Parks said she signed a consent form and returned it to the teacher, opting her daughter out of the health class where the quiz was passed out.
“We had a brief conversation and she assured me that this sort of thing would not happen none the less it is happening,” said Ms. Parks.
Eva McClain, whose daughter just move from Lithonia Middle School, said the sexual orientation quiz was not part of the curriculum when her daughter took the same health class from the same teacher.
“If a kid wants to know about the gender or know about the sex preference it should come from the parents not from the school,” said McClain.
The school has since responded to that matter, defending the teacher and the curriculum:
“The teacher correctly utilized DCSD’s Family Life and Sexual Health (FLASH) curriculum, an abstinence-based, evidence-informed sexuality education program,” said the district.
The statement also explains that parents are “fully informed of the use of this curriculum and are given due notice to op-out.”
Here’s some of the questions as reported by CBN News:
- “a woman who is attracted to women”
- “a man who is attracted to men”
- “a person who is attracted to men and women”
- “a man who is attracted to women or a woman who is attracted to men”
- “when a person’s gender identity doesn’t match the sex…the doctor said they were when they were born”
This stuff isn’t going to stop. It’s going to get worse and worse and at some point there’s probably not even going to be an opt-out given – although in this case the opt-out apparently didn’t seem to matter.
This is part of the fundamental transformation Obama promised us. The Supreme Court says gay marriage is a-ok and now our kids are getting quizzed on what ‘CIS Transgender’ means.
I’d love to think we are going to be able to turn his country around on these issues, but I simply don’t know if I believe it’s possible.
Home-school while you can. Who knows how long it will be before that becomes illegal…
