Really talking to your kids is the key. Any parent who really talks to their kids would not allow a school to alienate them. They would know what was happening.
When my son was in seventh grade, the school brought in a group of players for what they called diversity training. The kids expected it to be on boy on girl sexual harassment, but it was on Gay rights. Anyway the kids were puzzled by the the skits, they really weren't very conscious of homosexuality and were shocked by all the talk. Anyway, during the question and answer period, my son stood up and asked the guy if he was gay and if that is why he was doing this. The guy was stunned and didn't know what to say. But my point is that my son wasn't being converted to lib-think. It ruined the whole session and gave other kids the strength to question, also.
