OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska education officials announced Thursday that they have largely scrapped plans for gender identity lessons in public school curriculum after an uproar from conservatives who argued that the topics weren't appropriate for children.
The new draft of the proposed sexual standards from the Nebraska Department of Education came after agency officials faced intense criticism from parents, school boards, state lawmakers and Republican Gov. Pete Ricketts, who held town hall events to blast the proposal. Opponents flooded a meeting of the Nebraska State Board of Education, an elected board that oversees the agency.
“What we're really trying to do is understand what Nebraskans as a whole accept as a standard and an expectation of what our students learn in school,” Matthew Blomstedt, Nebraska's education commissioner, said Thursday at a press conference. “There's always going to be a little bit of tensions over those types of issues, especially in this sense.”

Definitely not appropriate for children (that’s why they want to do them) but also not appropriate for anyone because they are insane and irrational and not true.
Children need to be children. Later in life they will be bombarded with the trials & tribulations of adulthood. Let their innocence last thru childhood.
Non conservatives are a-ok with it.
No mention in the article that any of the sinister perverts infesting the education department getting fired. That’s like finding your babysitter’s written plan to sexual is you kids with porn and then still using her to watch you kids. It is insane.
Good, but not enough. Every school official who knuckled under to this curriculum needs to be fired, minimum.
This is why conservative voters must pay attention to school board elections.
Fired and banned from teaching for life. Perverts.
