Fortunately, my kids are grown.

J had always felt different. He was certain that eventually everyone would understand who he really was: a boy mistakenly born as a girl. Yet as he grew up, his body began to betray him; eventually J stopped praying to wake up a "real boy" and started covering up his body, keeping himself invisible -- from his parents, from his friends, from the world. But after being deserted by the best friend he thought would always be by his side, J decides that he's done hiding. It's time to be who he really is.

My daughter got exposed to all this stuff. Turned her into a conservative, total.
Complain loudly. Education bureaucrats are the most craven and spineless creatures there are. They bully weakness and cower before strength. Therefore, they will always go for the lowest common denominator
Time to bring back tar, feathers and rail.
Where is the school? What state? Large city?
Im well aware of whats going on. This shouldnt be news to FReepers with School aged kids. Homeschool or private school with traditional values. The public schools are a dump.
The list is above in the post. My kid would get yanked out so fast.
Which state are you in? Not that this carp isnt happening all across the country. :-(
Institutionalized Child Abuse
That is the total list?
I do not know. Waiting.
Isn’t elementary school a little early to burden them with the pressures of learning to read?
Something doesn’t pass the smell test here ...
MN. I was shocked to discover this here.
Not a classic on the list. I suppose reading “Tom Sawyer” or “Call of the Wild” was too “something.”
What do mean? Private email me and I'll send you the newsletter pdf. I didn't want to name names on a public board.
Thankful I homeschooled them at least a part of the way.
