    A kindergarten teacher who created a video about race for her students says she hopes the video -- which now has nearly 100,000 views on YouTube -- helps inspire other teachers to make race an ongoing conversation in their classrooms. "What I keep saying to teachers is you’re going to mess up, it's going to be uncomfortable but the outcome is so powerful that you would have regretted never saying something sooner," Vera Ahiyya, a kindergarten teacher at a public school in Brooklyn, New York, told "Good Morning America." "And kids can do it. Kids can have these conversations." Ahiyya,...

    Progressives have a habit of wanting to tell people how to live, and that includes telling them how to raise their children. Citizens of Washington state have told their government that they do not want their children, starting in kindergarten, to participate in “comprehensive sexual health education” but the state’s Democrats believe they know better, KTTH reported Monday. The legislation, House Bill 2184, is designed to address issues like affirmative consent, but also includes lessons that address the “LGBTQ+ students.” And this is even after a survey conducted by the state’s Comprehensive Sexual Health Education work group showed that a...

    "I dare you... Hold up the textbook in front of the camera and show them a picture of what 10-year-olds are going to be asked to see." That was Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers's (R) challenge to reporters, when they asked him about his fierce response to the radical Left's sex ed. He pointed to a book, called It's Perfectly Normal, that isn't normal at all -- unless you're one of those rare individuals who think teaching anal sex to five-year-olds is a good idea. Arizona State Superintendent Kathy Hoffman's (D), Twitter profile shows a picture of the new officeholder...

    CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WTVC) — One family says their 5-year-old son with autism is being punished for giving his classmate a hug. East Ridge Elementary leaders say the boy overstepped his boundaries. But, his family says the whole thing is a big misunderstanding. Nathan is a 5-year-old boy kindergartner at East Ridge Elementary. The principal says the school staff has talked with him several times. His guardian says the school has filed a report with the state. Summery Putnam, Nathan's guardian, says she received a call from her son's teacher at East Ridge Elementary about three weeks ago. "I was sick...

    The mayor of Boston announced Monday that every kindergartener in the city’s public school system will receive a savings account, complete with a starting $50 balance this fall at beginning of the school year. Mayor Marty Walsh said Boston Saves, a pilot program which has benefited about a dozen schools since 2016, is slated to reach all Boston public schools by Fall 2019. The city will then take steps to expand the program to charter schools. The initiative aims to increase college and career access by supporting low income families in saving and planning for their children’s future. “Every child...

    SAPPINGTON, Mo. (AP) — Like many other parents, Rachel Major moved to the Lindbergh School District in 2006 because she wanted good public schools. Lindbergh, a slice of south St. Louis County where a typical home costs more than $200,000, is one of the highest-rated school districts in Missouri. But when her oldest son was finishing preschool two years ago, she was surprised to learn that she would have to pay $3,500 for him to attend Lindbergh's full-day kindergarten. "Why are we paying tuition to a public school?" said Major, whose 5-year-old daughter will start full-day kindergarten at Sappington Elementary...

    A number of angry parents are considering legal action after a charter school kindergarten teacher staged what one critic calls a transgender “transition ceremony” in class for a five-year-old boy without informing parents beforehand. But Rocklin Academy Schools has countered that it didn’t have to tell parents about the transgenderism lesson that has left a number of five-year-olds shaken and disturbed. Because gender identity isn’t sex education, the administration said, it's not subject to California’s parental consent and opt-out laws, reported Fox40News. Moreover, with gender identity and gender expression prohibited grounds for discrimination in the state, not to accept a...

    How young is too young to introduce a child to the concept of gender identity? That is a question the Rocklin Academy Schools district tried to handle after a young student revealed herself as transgender. Some parents applauded the district's efforts while others questioned whether it was handled properly. Ankur Dhawan's 5-year-old daughter was in the classroom that day. She came home and talked about what she learned. "She said, 'Well, we learned about a girl in a boy's body,'" Dhawan said. "This turned out to be a fairly decent way of introducing a topic that I wouldn't otherwise know...

    Angry parents stampeded a California charter school board meeting Monday after a teacher read her kindergarten class picture books about transgenderism to affirm a gender dysphoric classmate. During the class, parents say, the gender dysphoric boy also switched clothes to look more like a girl in a “gender reveal.” Parents were not notified beforehand of the discussion or the classmate’s psychological condition, and learned about it when their confused kindergarteners arrived home from school that day. “The kindergartners came home very confused, about whether or not you can pick your gender, whether or not they really were a boy or...

    Parents in Rocklin, California were horrified to discover that a teacher led a kindergarten-age classroom discussion on transgenderism that included introducing a five-year-old who was transitioning from male to female. Children at Rocklin Academy were subjected to readings from two storybooks about transgenderism. At some point, the teacher introduced a classmate who changed clothes for the big gender reveal. "These parents feel betrayed by the school district that they were not notified," Capitol Resource Institute's Karen England told CBS News in Sacramento. "The kindergartners came home very confused, about whether or not you can pick your gender, whether or not...

    The Sara-Nussbaum-Haus Kindergarten in Kassel has made it clear: no Christmas tree, no Christmas songs, no Christmas spirit. Kassel is a city in central Germany; approximately 12% of the population of 200,000 are foreign or have foreign roots. Teachers will forgo Christian rituals to accommodate the “diverse cultures” of their students. A city representative announced, “There will be no Christmas celebrations, in the strictest sense. Because the majority of children at this Kindergarten are not Christian, Christmas will not be celebrated in the way that it is at other schools.” The city of Kassel confirmed that there had not been...

    By fall 2017 Washington state public schools will begin teaching gender expression to kindergarteners under newly-approved health education learning standards that designate sexual health a “core idea” of public K-12 education. While some aspects of sexual health aren’t taught K-12 (HIV prevention begins in fourth grade), one component of sexual health titled “Self-Identity” begins in kindergarten, where students will be expected to “Understand there are many ways to express gender." The state’s health education glossary defines gender as “A social construct based on emotional, behavioral, and cultural characteristics attached to a person’s assigned biological sex.” Gender expression, meanwhile, is defined...

    And as more mainstream forces in the Republican Party try to unite to stop his march to the nomination, they are finding that the fear of taking on Mr. Trump is discouraging his would-be opponents from signing on to the fight. “I’ve never encountered an American politician at this level that people are literally afraid of — donors are afraid of him,” said Rich Lowry, the editor of National Review, a magazine that has criticized Mr. Trump. He added, “If it was Hillary Clinton that was doing it, the entire right-wing world would erupt in outrage, understandably and correctly.”

    SODUS, NY, July 27, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- Boys or girls who suffer from gender dysphoria must be allowed to use the bathrooms and change rooms of the opposite sex if they wish to do so, according to new guidance from the New York State Department of Education (NYDE).The document also clarifies that while schools can make “unisex” facilities available to such students, such facilities “should never be forced upon students, nor presented as the only option." Furthermore, schools should generally accept any student's stated preferred gender without question.The advice is just one of the more controversial sections of the document,...
