A school board meeting in Rocklin, California made national news after angry parents showed up to voice their objection to a teacher who read books about transgenderism to a class of kindergartners without parental notification.
The Rocklin Academy Kindergarten teacher read two books which explained transgenderism to very young children, between the ages of four and eight.
The district says the books were age-appropriate and because gender identity isn’t sex education, the topic doesn’t require prior parental notice.
One of the books titled “I am Jazz” begins “From the time she was two years old, Jazz knew that she had a girl’s brain in a boy’s body.” The book goes on to explain,” “I have a girl brain but a boy body. This is called transgender. I was born this way!”
A child that young cannot think abstractly which is why many of the students were left confused and afraid. One parent at the meeting said, “My daughter came home crying and shaking so afraid she could turn into a boy.”
The teacher did not just read the explicit books to the children, but she also presented the boy as a girl to his five-year-old classmates, introducing the boy as “her.”
Karen England with the Capitol Resource Institute said, “The kindergartners came home very confused, about whether or not you can pick your gender, whether or not they really were a boy or a girl.”
This is nothing short of child abuse.
A number of families have decided to pull their children from Rocklin Academy, says Johnathan Keller of the California Family Council. They are circulating a petition asking for parental notification before any material outside of the curriculum is presented in the classroom.
United States Parents Involved in Education (USPIE) advocates for homeschooling during a time in our history where transgenderism is preached to a room full of children barely old enough to read and who cannot comprehend progressive concepts such as “gender identity.”
