Michael Tavoliero: Must Read Alaska story from 2022 shows what’s really going on in Alaska schools



As a staunch advocate for constitutional rights and individual freedoms, I hold a libertarian perspective when it comes to our government’s role in protecting our fundamental liberties. Both the Preamble to the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Alaska outline the core principles upon which our government is built, emphasizing the importance of safeguarding the rights and welfare of our citizens.

The Preamble to the United States Constitution begins with the iconic phrase, “We the People,” highlighting that the government derives its authority from the citizens it serves. It outlines key objectives, including establishing justice, ensuring domestic tranquility, providing for the common defense, promoting the general welfare, and securing the blessings of liberty. Similarly, the Alaska Constitution underscores principles such as promoting the common welfare, responsible development and conservation of resources, encouragement of education and morality, and protection of individual rights.

With that said, please read the story at this link.

It is a story of how top-down government is removing the parent/child relationship and replacing it with an artificial outcome paid for by our tax dollars in Alaska.

It is one of the saddest stories I’ve ever read. In fall of 2021, the parents learned their daughter was being transitioned by her public school with a new made up name on her school ID. All of this was behind the backs of these parents. 

Here is an excerpt:

“They (school employees) proceeded to tell me I have no say over anything my daughter wants to go by or what’s in her record or anything,” Susie said. “The only thing I had a say over was what her name was on her transcript. And the only way that changes is with a court-documented name change. But otherwise, their wording to me was that it was illegal for me to insist on a certain name or anything in the yearbook or on her ID.”

What is incredible is that there are untold numbers of parents who are going through this same event. The tragedy behind all of this is the outcome to each child’s life when the light bulb goes off in their maturing brains 5, 10, even 20 years later to realize that the gender transformation is irreversible and Alaska’s public is further decimated by the use of public funds for a completely fraudulent and evil “public purpose”.

The concerns raised in the article shed light on the significant impact of transgender-related policies and practices on families and communities in Alaska. It underscores the pivotal role of state institutions, such as the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development and the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, in shaping policies that directly affect our children’s well-being. Beyond immediate impacts, these policies prompt reflection on the broader notion of public purpose within our constitutional republic.

In a constitutional republic like Alaska, the government’s purpose extends beyond mere governance; it encompasses safeguarding inherent rights and liberties, including the freedom to live according to one’s conscience and beliefs. When policies are enacted using public funds, they must align with the overarching public purpose of upholding fundamental values and ensuring the welfare of all citizens. 

The allocation of public resources, particularly through programs like Medicaid, necessitates careful consideration of their compatibility with the state’s constitutional principles and values. More potently ascribed to our Article VII, Section 1, and Article IX, Section 6, constitutional guarantees is the primordial concept of “public purpose.” 

Alaska’s youth is the foundation of the very definition of “public purpose.” This includes safeguarding the rights and well-being of this vulnerable population, who are disproportionately affected by certain medical interventions. As such, state leaders, including Gov. Mike Dunleavy and Attorney General Treg Taylor, bear a solemn duty to uphold these principles and address concerns that arise when public resources are utilized in ways that may conflict with them.

Given these considerations, urgent legal action may be necessary to halt practices perceived as harmful or contrary to the public interest. Measures such as obtaining a temporary restraining order followed by a permanent injunction may be crucial to protect the rights and futures of Alaska’s children.

It falls upon state leaders to prioritize the well-being and future of our youth, ensuring that policies and practices align with the values and principles upon which our constitutional republic is built.

  1. Even the dense Europeans are acknowledging child mutilation is wrong and are pulling way back on this mess.
    Only us and Canada are determined to ruin children forever.

    Public education is child abuse. Get your kids out, yesterday.

  2. If anyone needed to be told by MRAK what was not being done in Alaska’s public education, you weren’t paying attention or you were not smart. I been making my poor listeners mad hearing my opinion about K12 education since 2002. I’m glad there are more people today realizing it. I don’t feel so alone in my opinion.

    I tell people don’t Even waste your time or your child’s time going to any Alaska school including an in-person Alaskan private school and charter school. The teachers are Alaskans and they aren’t as educated as they present themselves.

  3. Jen, many parents in Alaska do not realize there are options to the standard public school model. At this time there are charter schools, home school groups and other options. Please ask parents to get involved in their local community, network, run for school board or get involved in some way. These will begin to change our outlook for the future.

  4. Parents turn your life around and home school your kids .
    Right now the education they are getting will not help them on the real world.
    Start a neighborhood school with parents trading days to teach.

  5. Michael, I agree with your precepts here. The government is not upholding freedom for anyone with social engineering in schools. You fail, however, to make the point that parents are responsible for their children’s education and social upbringing – NOT THE GOVERNMENT. You also stop short of boldly saying transgender programs and indoctrination are unconstitutional, which I believe you are hinting at. Public schools must serve the parents will for their children, not conduct social and medical experiments behind parents’ backs. No child is capable of making permanent life-changing decisions – that’s why we have statutory rape laws, and marriage-age requirements. Schools need to get back to teaching the three “Rs” and how to think – not what to think.

  6. Ummm, I think there were photos showing what’s going on in Alaska’s public schools. Pup tents and rainbow reading. Let it burn.

  7. At some point, I think it would be most appropriate to ‘identify’ the specific people within the ASD that are perpetuating this crime. It sounds it’s long past due to put some “heat” on them personally.

  8. Ultimately, it cruelty to children to “make” them forcibly be confused in a public setting, public school, to be humiliating confused about who they are. Ultimately it is a purposeful, malicious cruelty. Mentally ill adults are doing this to other people’s children. How is it NOT sick? How is it tolerable. It isn’t. Cut their budgets.
