Anchorage schools have not only taken over sex education for parents, they are teaching wokeism, gender neutrality, “pick your pronoun,” “change your name,” and techniques needed to be successful in sexual proclivity.
In full transparency, they will provide a parental consent form that seems pretty benign.
However, the description of the Academic Plan and Learning Outcomes is not informative to parents. Here is the form that informs parents of the curriculum and the learning outcomes:
This form meets the intent of the state law to get parental approval. Once the permission slip is signed by the parent, the school district is off the hook.
The learning outcomes are vague and do not reflect what is being taught in the classroom. The permission form is misleading to parents. An argument can be made it is deceiving.
Based on the learning outcomes above, most any parent would sign the permission form. That is exactly the objective of the the Anchorage School District, which prides itself on its “transparency” and “accountability” principles.
The school district has stepped in as the surrogate parents in teaching sex education.
As noted in a previous article, the Anchorage School District is pairing boys and girls to ask extremely intimate and sordid questions of each other in a “speed dating” exercise.
Here is a second example of the questions the boy-girl pairs are to ask each other:
These questions are from a book, “100 Questions You Would Never Ask Your Parents” by Elizabeth Henderson and Nancy Armstrong, which is being used to teach sex education to Anchorage high school students.
What learning objective is aligned with question #41: “With all the condoms out there, how can I know which one to pick?”
There are also several questions about unprotected sex and pregnancy. Do these questions lead the student to Planned Parenthood rather than a conversation with their parent? After signing the permission slip, are these the type of questions you as a parent thought would be covered?
This sexual movement is not limited to Alaska. It is happening in many schools throughout the nation. A poster in an Eau Claire, Wisconsin high school classroom portrays the school as “I’m Your Mom Now.”
This refers to the gender fluid, transgender, LGBQT+ effort to groom students to question their biological sex.
As noted in an earlier story, the Anchorage School District also intends to keep parents in the dark when a middle or high school student decides to change genders. It’s not just Anchorage.
According to The Federalist, teachers in San Francisco held a meeting in which a question came up as to how to handle a parent who asks teachers to use her child’s given name and biologically correct pronouns. One teacher conveyed an experience in which a parent stated to her, “I know you were using a different name than my child’s given name at birth and the pronouns we gave them, and I’m respectfully asking that you use the name and the pronouns that we gave them.”
The teacher proudly described her defiant reply, “So, in my classroom, I will refer to your child by whatever name and pronouns that they’ve told me they feel most comfortable with.”
Without a focus on the 3 Rs, more parents will be looking for other places to educate their children. More students will be leaving the public education system. If so, the public education system only has itself to blame.
