East Pennsboro School Board Decision Tonight Will Be a Vote for or Against Students’ Well-being

(Harrisburg) —  Tonight’s vote at the East Pennsboro school board meeting will determine whether students will face indoctrination that endangers their well-being or they will remain safe from the social engineering that goes hand in hand with so-called Gay Straight Alliance Clubs or GSAs.  The tie vote of the board on April 2nd showed that at least half the board understands the legal liability the school may face by allowing homosexuality education into the schools.  The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA) has contacted the school board members with the exact language of the Equal Access Act and a list of disruptive activities GSAs promote in their respective schools.

“GSAs are the brain child of Kevin Jennings, former Safe Schools Czar of President Obama, who has promoted homosexuality in schools since he was a Massachusetts teacher.  He formed the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN) to fulfill his dream of nationwide student indoctrination that ‘gay is okay.’  GLSEN has several days of action with their biggest disruptive day coming this Friday with the Day of Silence where students and teachers remain silent — in some cases even during instructional time.  The clear message with GSAs, GLSEN and their days of actions is that engaging in homosexual acts is safe and normal and anyone who opposes them is a homophobic bully — that’s their message.  It’s one that threatens the free speech rights of students with deeply held religious believes,” noted Diane Gramley, president of the AFA of PA.

The last section (Section f) of the Equal Access Act says:   Authority of schools with respect to order, discipline,  well-being, and attendance concerns

Nothing in this subchapter shall be construed to limit the authority of the
school, its agents or employees, to maintain order and discipline on school
premises, to protect the well-being of students and faculty, and to assure that
attendance of students at meetings is voluntary.

“GLSEN’s agenda through their GSAs and their Days of Action are designed to be an attack on order and discipline within the school and the life of the student body.  To give a green light to this club would be giving a green light to indoctrination which would disrupt the academic process and would send the wrong message to students,” further stated Gramley
