    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...

I want her to hear from me as a parent what her gender identity means to her and our family,” a meeting attendee said regarding her daughter. “It’s really about the parents being informed and involved and giving us the choice...

    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,...

    Kindergarten show canceled so kids can keep studying to become ‘college and career ready.’ Really. By Valerie Strauss April 26 at 11:59 am An annual year-end kindergarten show has been canceled at a New York school because the kids have to keep working so they will be “college and career” ready. Really. That’s what it says in a letter (see below) sent to parents by Ellen Best-Laimit, the interim principal of Harley Avenue Primary School in Elwood, N.Y., and four kindergarten teachers. The play was to be staged over two days, May 14 and 15, according to the school’s calendar....

    (CNSNews.com) - The Chicago Public Schools this year are mandating that the district’s kindergarten classes include sex education, fulfilling a proposal President Barack Obama supported in 2003 when he served in the Illinois state senate and later defended when he ran for president in the 2008 election cycle. At a Planned Parenthood convention at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C., on July 17, 2007, a teenage girl who said she worked as a sex-education “peer educator” in the D.C. public schools asked then-U.S. Sen. Obama what he would do to encourage the teaching of “medically accurate, age-appropriate, and responsible sex...
