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 arent 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 states health education glossary defines gender as A social construct based on emotional, behavioral, and cultural characteristics attached to a persons assigned biological sex. Gender expression, meanwhile, is defined as The way someone outwardly expresses their gender. These definitions differ from the states definition of biological sex: Based on chromosomes, hormones, and internal and external anatomy.
Nathan Olson, a communications manager for the statewide Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), told The Daily Caller that the glossary was developed to support classroom instruction. The new standards were finalized in March but OSPI has yet to issue a press release informing the public of the changes.
As part of an aspect of sexual health titled Healthy Relationships, kindergarteners will learn to distinguish between safe and unwanted touch. They will also learn to Recognize people have the right to refuse giving or receiving unwanted touch. OSPI did not answer a question from TheDC about whether this lesson plan amounts to teaching consent to kindergarteners.
By third grade, students will be expected to Explain that gender roles can vary considerably and Understand [the] importance of treating others with respect regarding gender identity, as part of the Self-Identity component of sexual health.
Gender identity is defined by the state as Someones inner sense of their gender.
The standards dont define gender spectrum. But self-identity is a key component, Olson said when TheDC asked whether learning that gender is a spectrum is considered part of learning about gender identity. Last month, Fox News Todd Starnes described a Virginia countys lesson plans on gender spectrum as the idea that theres no such thing as 100 percent boys or 100 percent girls.
That lesson planwhich was met with outrage from parentswas designed for middle and high school students.
By fourth grade, Washington students will learn to Identify how friends and family can influence ideas regarding gender roles, identity, and expression and define sexual orientation. The state defines gender roles as Social expectations about how people should act, think, or feel based on their assigned biological sex.
In fifth grade, students will learn to Describe how media, society, and culture can influence ideas regarding gender roles, identity, and expression. Under the guidance of school employees, fifth graders will also Identify trusted adults to ask questions about gender identity and sexual orientation. Its not clear if parents are automatically considered trusted adults.
By the end of elementary school (typically around age 11 or 12), students will be expected to Understand the range of gender roles, identity, and expression across cultures.
In seventh grade, students will learn to Distinguish between biological sex, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation. By eighth grade, students will be expected to Recognize external influences that shape attitudes about gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.
This education continues through high school where students will Evaluate how culture, media, society, and other people influence our perceptions of gender roles, sexuality, relationships, and sexual orientation.
OSPI denied that the state intends to force a set of beliefs upon its students.
Standards help students become familiar with concepts that education experts feel are essential for all students to know, Olson said. Standards are not used to impose belief systems.
In response to a question from TheDC about whether a student who rejects the idea that gender identity is distinct from biological sex could end up failing a course on account of their beliefs, Olson said: That would be handled at the district/school level.
He later admitted that we dont exactly know what a school would do if a student failed to complete an assignment because he/she opposed the materials being taught.
Olson said that the decision to implement specific learning outcomes lies with individual districts. Districts can craft their own curriculums, he said, as long as they align with state learning standards.
Oh great earthquake and tsunami cleanze the west coast
They begin polluting the minds of children early.
Safe Sodomy for Second Graders???
Public Preschool is Child Abuse.
That’s child abuse.
This isn’t pollution.
This is sexual assault. A crime.
These people need to be arrested, charged, and convicted as sex offenders.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth.
19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.
20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse;
21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened.
22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools,
23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves,
25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural,
27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error.
28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct.
29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips,
30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents,
31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless.
32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.
These are not schools. They are socialist training camps.
See how quickly the culture can change these days? Six months ago this sh!t wasn’t even on the radar. Now the laws are changing state by state to force the people to accept a radical moral shift overnight. I cannot believe there has not been more pushback.
It’s M A D N E S S !
Hollywood has taken over.
Abolish government schools.
This MUST be done.
Time for all sane parents to remove their children from public schools and start a tax revolt.
What sort of adult would do this? A pedophile.
My child’s high school is allowing a (male) trans-gender to use the girl’s locker room. He still has all his parts but will be allowed to use the locker room with the girls. I’m beyond ticked off.
