Illinois School District “LGBT” Activists Call K-8 Indoctrination “Equity”
Illinois Family Institute ^ | 10/15/2019 | Laurie Higgins

Posted on 10/15/2019 9:27:26 PM PDT by stars & stripes forever

Last week School District 65, which serves the racially, ethnically, and religiously diverse Evanston and Skokie, Illinois communities, went whole hog on disseminating a controversial ideology to captive audiences of other people’s children who came to school with open minds and hearts into which “progressives” poured poison masquerading as inarguable truth. District 65’s celebration of “LGBTQ+ Equity Week” offers a glimpse into the kind of pernicious indoctrination that the cunningly named “Inclusive Curriculum” bill signed into law by Governor J. B. Pritzker will bring to Illinois school children.

EXCERPT...

So, what did the leftist activists instruct faculty to teach other people’s children? Here’s just a bit from the guidelines:

Pre-K and kindergarten: The unit for the littlest ones is titled “Family/Flag/Identity.” Introducing pre-K and kindergarten students to “family” means conditioning them to understand that “all families are different” and to believe that all these different family structures are “cool!” The view, however, that all family structures are “cool” is not a fact, and it’s not even a view that “progressives” hold. If they did, why didn’t they introduce pre-kindergartners to polygamous and polyamorous family structures?

Leftists have concluded that families headed by homosexuals who intentionally deprive children of either mothers or fathers are “cool,” so they will use government schools to advance that idea. But family structures they don’t view as “cool” are omitted. But here’s the rub. Some people don’t view families led by homosexuals as cool and they don’t want their children exposed to any images of or ideas about them—and certainly not leftist views of the coolness of them. Some naïve readers may think the reference to the “flag” is to the American flag. No such luck. It’s a reference to the rainbow and “trans” flags that 4 and 5-year-old children—who should know nothing about cross-sex passing and homosexuality—were expected to be able to “explain the importance of.” Our government schools are not only introducing preschoolers to sexual perversion but also affirming it to them.

First grade: For five days straight, six-year-olds were to be taught Leftist pronoun rules using a book titled They, She, He easy as ABC, which is described on Amazon as “a… much-needed picture book about pronouns and gender fluidity.” It begins with this: “Ari loves to arabesque. They hold their pose with ease.” Ari, a single child, is referred to by the third-person plural pronoun “they.”

Children were to “introduce themselves, choosing pronouns” from those in the book—which includes “ze” and “tree” as pronouns—and “explore foundational concepts in pronoun use, presentation, and bias.” Whose understanding of bias do you suppose the children were exposed to? To be clear, public school teachers are teaching 6-year-olds incorrect grammar in the service of advancing a Leftist sexuality ideology.

Grades 2 and 3: “Students will analyze a traditional fairy tale through an inclusive lens, ensuring gender neutrality and culturally relevant content. Students will learn basic LGBTQ+ vocabulary. They will recognize and discuss stereotypes, and create their own inclusive folk tale to share with lower grades.” Did you catch that? District 65 teachers were encouraged to force 2nd and 3rd graders to disciple younger students in the “LGBTQ+” religion.

Grades 4 and 5: Teachers were instructed to have 9, 10, and 11-year-olds play a matching game in which they would match terms to definitions. The terms were cisgender, gay, lesbian, binary, gender identity, gender expression, sex assigned at birth, bisexual, transgender, and preferred pronouns. Teachers were urged to have students examine “androgyny” and study these photos:

By the end of the week students were to have created “their own gender inclusive and diverse advertisement for a product,” which they would then “present and ‘sell’… to the class.”

Grades 6, 7, and 8: The title for the week’s unit for 11-14-year-olds was “Activism: Breaking the Binary.” The curriculum overview explains that “During this week-long curriculum, students will interact with content that encourages the allyship, visibility, and activism for the LGBTQ+ community. Students will… think outside the binary norms of society. They will become familiar with LGBTQ terminology in order to become better allies, learn significant historical events & people that contributed to the LGBTQ rights movement, and take a deeper look at the relationship between activism strategies and major change.”

It is the parents fault, they should band together and march into the schools as ONE, and demand a change. Nothing scares these people more than a show of righteous anger.

Citizens Against Government Waste ^ | September 2019 | Citizens Against Government Waste

Posted on 9/28/2019, 10:14:46 PM by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) named Illinois Governor J. B. Pritzker (D) September 2019 Porker of the Month for signing a $40.1 billion budget without any spending restraints and $1.4 billion in pork-barrel projects.

223.9 billion shortfall, which breaks down to a debt burden of $52,600 per taxpayer. The state has $6 billion in unpaid bills and the lowest credit rating of any state in the country. Its unfunded pension liability tops $130 billion. Illinois taxpayers are so saddled with debt, taxes, corrupt local government, and dwindling middle-class jobs that 157,000 residents have left over the past five years.

Here’s where it all is headed. Where it was 50 years ago in Germany by Socialist teachers who went on to having sex in class with the students.

Last week only 100 parents showed up - total (pro and con) to speak out on the proposed policy for Unrestricted Transgender Access. Unbelievable!

Has the Church so far gone that anything and everything is acceptable?

Whenever I read about the indoctrination kids are getting in school, I am reminded of something a late friend of mine told me. A friend of his wife’s, a teacher, came over for a visit. He engaged her in conversation and mentioned that he thought it would be good if parents had more input and a more active role in their children’s schools. She asked, “Why? So the kids will turn out like you?” He was an intelligent, kind, hardworking, Christian man who took care of his family and yet, to this teacher, he was objectionable.

I checked the Illinois Family Institute for similar articles, it is more than appalling what is going on. https://illinoisfamily.org/topic/homosexuality/ and as for the parents . . . no outrage there. They are either into themselves, are in the minority on the issues, or in split homes. The churches. . .let’s not even go there. . .they have been so lukewarm, they have lost their sense of influence.

Do you not remember the MIchigan School Admin teacher who said (paraphrase) ‘we know better than their parents, what is good for kids’?

Public schools are totally run by Leftists. Everywhere. As is the National Council of Churches. The Left has gained control of nearly all of our ‘National’ groups. And they are controlling the narrative in every area.

Seems to me that maybe Gov. Pritzker needs a little “pernicious indoctrination” of his own.

I remember that. It’s a common attitude. The tragedy is the system has been so corrupted that an entire generation, at least, has been affected by it. It’s a shame more people didn’t fight this stuff a long time ago when it was a much smaller problem. Then the schools would have been put on notice that they can’t just do as they please. No parents should have to put up with teachers undermining the values parents are trying to instill in their children. Their children.
