Calif. Approves LGBT Propaganda Lessons for K-12 History Classes
On Thursday, the California State Board of Education voted to approve lessons for elementary, middle and high school students that recognize the contributions of minorities including “lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans."
According to a press release by the California Department of Education, the framework is meant to provide "guidance" to teachers, administrators, and publishers for history and social science instruction. "It includes more than 20 detailed classroom examples that show teachers how they can integrate their instruction to build students' history–social science knowledge and skills, literacy skills, and English language development."
"This is a big win for our students," said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson. "This document will improve the teaching and learning of history and social science. It will give our students access to the latest historical research and help them learn about the diversity of our state and the contributions of people and groups who may not have received the appropriate recognition in the past."
Excuse me, but can someone please explain how learning about historical figures' sexual proclivities will improve history education in a country where college students don't know who won the Civil War and can't name our vice president? And do tell how learning about LGBT history is going to "improve literacy skills, and English language development" of students in California's classrooms, where 22% of kids speak English as a second language.
For years we were told by the progressive left that they wanted everyone to stay out of their bedrooms, but now they're dragging our kids into the most intimate aspects of adults' lives. They're insisting that our children must know how (and with whom) everyone likes to have sex, claiming this is an essential element of a well-rounded view of history.
When I was in 4th grade our teacher took us on a field trip to her house for some odd reason. During a tour of her home, I was shocked and awkwardly embarrassed to see that there were twin beds in the master bedroom. That set my 9-year-old mind to thinking about my 4th grade teacher in bed (or not, actually) with her husband, which seemed terribly strange and confusing to me. There's no reason a 4th grader (or any elementary school kid) should be thinking about how, where, or with whom her teacher is sleeping.
