Parents Beware: School Year 2019-2020 is Upon Us!
As this school year begins there can be no doubt that our children will be under increased attacks when they enter the schoolhouse door. The National Education Association (NEA) adopted Business Item 56 declaring abortion a fundamental right. The NEA “will include an assertion of our defense of a person’s right to control their own body, especially for women, youth, and sexually marginalized people. The NEA vigorously opposes all attacks on the right to choose and stands on the fundamental right to abortion under Roe v. Wade.” Planned Parenthood and the pro-LGBTQ+ organization Advocates for Youth are already writing comprehensive sex ed (CSE) curriculum and state legislatures (including PA — HB 1586) are pushing bills that would make CSE mandatory in K-12!
Here are some other examples of the NEA’s attack on children:
New Business Item 47: NEA will work with current partners (such as GLSEN) to expand the number of professional development opportunities for Gender Sexuality Alliances (GSA) advisors.
New Business Item 48: NEA will create model legislative language that state affiliates can use to lobby for a K-12 cross content curriculum that is LGBTQ+ inclusive.
New Business Item 55: The National Education Association (NEA) will organize and mobilize in support of the Equality Act to be a top legislative priority by using existing resources to channel activist energy toward education and advocacy . . . .
You get the idea!
The NEA is very much into pushing radical agendas promoting abortion and the LGBTQ+ agenda. Schools have a legal obligation to allow parents to review materials presented in class, but some schools prefer parents not to “interfere” with the “education process.”
Parents can opt their child out of lessons they do not want their children exposed to and, after turning the opt out form in, will probably still need to monitor what is going by being in regular communication with the teachers. And, it’s always a good idea to ask your children about their classes.
You can use this opt out form to let the school know what materials are off-limits for your child.
