Pennsylvania District Fights to Keep Parents From Watching Pro-LGBT Videos Students Were Required to Watch
article appeared in the Daily Signal on July 5th
At East Penn School
district, officials don’t just indoctrinate kids — they refuse to show parents
how! That’s the outrageous predicament Emmaus families find themselves in after
they found out about a weeklong blitz of pro-LGBT videos that was required
watching in every homeroom. And here’s the irony: while students were forced to
watch them, parents weren’t allowed!
Homosexuals indoctrinate kids
Local moms and dads
only found out about the screenings through their kids, not because the
administration bothered to inform them. Mike Huff, a parent of one of the
students, was furious. “I do not support a publicly-funded school pushing any
political or social views on children,” he
told administrators. These were “purposeful, planned, indoctrination
videos” that go against his family’s values. Yet, when Huff and others flooded
the school office, demanding to see what they were showing kids, the response
was simple: “No.”
“This was student
work; this wasn’t staff work,” Superintendent Michael Schilder insisted. “This
was not curriculum… This was student work that needs to be protected from
public scrutiny.” But, as most adults pointed out, the “student work” was
actually the product of the radical Gay Lesbian Straight Education Alliance
(GLSEN), which has been infiltrating schools under parents’ noses for years.
At a school board
meeting, East Penn parents lined up to blast the decision to keep the
information from parents. “Our community deserves much better than this from
the administration…” said mom Michelle Blagbrough. When officials refused to
turn over the materials to parents, a group of them contacted Liberty Counsel
to sue, if necessary. In a letter to the district earlier this week, attorneys
threatened legal action.
We want your children to understand, approve and TAKE PART!
“I am writing to request that the East Penn
School district immediately provide to all parents requesting them the specific
links to the four pro-homosexuality YouTube videos shown by the district to
2,800 high school students at Emmaus High School, as part of the district’s
‘Unity Week’ and ‘Day of Silence’ promotional activities.” If they refuse,
Liberty Counsel promises “further action to prevent irreparable harm to the
rights of local parents.”
By state law, the
district can’t withhold curriculum from parents — a
point attorneys drove home in their letter. “The Pennsylvania
Administrative Code requires that the district provide parents the opportunity
to review all instructional material shown to their children, prior to it being
shown… The district has violated this requirement.” Parents, they reiterated,
“not agents of the state, including teachers, and certainly not GLSEN or its
teacher or student affiliates with the GSA, have the right to direct the
upbringing and associations of minor children.”
LGBT activists have
relied on a campaign of secrecy in schools for years. But for a public school
to openly join those activists in keeping material from the parents of students
is an incredible display of arrogance. If you have kids in government schools,
protecting them from these influences is a full-time job. Stay vigilant — or
better, consider other options!
