Maria Keffler, a mother and former teacher of Arlington School districts states, “Arlington, your children are being experimented on.”
A new type of human sexuality lesson is being taught to youngsters attending public schools, and it involves gender fluidity.
It doesn’t matter if you want that lesson taught or not, you may not even know it’s coming to your own school.
The lesson starts off simple enough. An advocate will be invited to read a book to your child.
The book being used in Arlington is titled ‘I am Jazz” according to one parent who showed up to listen in.
Keffler’s reaction has prompted a warning to other parents who want time to prepare, opt-out or participate in the dialogue.
The message seems simple and clear enough, “You can be anything, and that includes being a transgender,” but according to Keffler, a former teacher, the methods being used are questionable. Part of their outreach involves partnerships with Arlington Gender Identity Allies.
According to Ms. Keffler, parents are not being informed in a timely fashion with notices being given without an opt-out clause. Letters sent out gave less than 1 week’s notice to parents to respond.
The actions of implementing a new policy, to Keffler, seem unnecessary since the school has a nondiscrimination policy in place. The difference? The new policy focuses on gender fluidity issues alone.
The district’s new policy comes with an agenda: to teach youth as young as 5-years old about issues surrounding transgenderism. The school district began the implementation of their new district policy in February.
Arlington’s Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Students policy shows a timeline of outreach events are listed from 2018 – 2021.
