CA Schools Force “Multisexual” Indoctrination

Multisexual curriculum has no place in the public schools.  Alameda School District made a big show of listening to parents the last few weeks in highly publicized board meetings….but then proceeded to ignore their concerns and requests, instituting the controversial curriculum without the possibility of opting out.

The hearings were a sham, a paltry effort at putting the face of democracy on the socialist march toward new morality in our schools.  Why did they bother to hold meetings to listen if they refuse to hear?

Alameda’s message to parents: Multisexual curriculum is coming to your school…. “Whether you like it or not.”

Yesterday evening the Alameda Unified School District voted 3-2 to approve the highly controversial curriculum that promotes multisexual lifestyles. Despite several prior meetings during which hundreds of parents expressed their outrage at such an imposition of controversial sexual content in the classroom, board members decided elementary school children should learn vocabulary words such as “lesbian” and “transgender.”

During the final meeting considering adoption of the curriculum, each side of the issue was given 15 minutes to outline their support or opposition. Three parents of Alameda students rose to express their opposition, articulately conveying the community-wide resistance to introducing a social agenda into their classrooms. Each parent detailed instances where their children were bullied or harassed for their race or religion without any help from the school board to stop the harassment.

The Alameda controversy has now become a national issue, symbolizing the fight between elitist school boards and parents asserting their rights. The media were a heavy presence at the meeting, including Fox News Channel’s Griff Jenkins, who covered the story for the national network.

In response to the revelation that the “anti-bullying” curriculum never actually addresses bullying, the school board announced the curriculum had been amended to include teaching on bullying by adding the word to the vocabulary list. They promised additional changes but, no parent was allowed to see the changes prior to the board’s vote that evening.

During the meeting, one school board member who voted against the curriculum inquired when the term “heterosexual” was introduced in school vocabulary and was told fifth grade, when parental notification and opt-out provision are mandatory. However, the term “homosexual” is introduced in fourth grade, and there will be no parental notification or opt-out provision. When asked about heterosexual family portrayals in school curriculum, the board was told students study the Donner Family. Those who were actually educated in their schools will remember the Donner Family is notorious for engaging in cannibalism when stranded on their pioneer journey to California in the 1800’s.

While parents have been highly suspect of the curriculum’s true agenda all along, it was revealed during the meeting that a lesbian teacher was pushing the curriculum because of the negative response she received from a “homophobic” parent who objected to the teacher “coming out” to her fifth grade class several years ago. She discovered that inserting the LGBT curriculum into the “Caring Schools” would be the best place for the controversial curriculum.

At one point during the meeting, the school board president admitted receiving more emails and letters in opposition of the curriculum than in support.  At the numerous board meetings those in attendance regarding the curriculum were overwhelmingly in opposition. That is noteworthy considering many Alameda parents are still learning about the curriculum.

“It’s impossible to understand how these three school board members can sit there and listen to this compelling testimony from concerned parents and still put their radical agenda ahead of the good of their school district,” stated Karen England, who attended the meeting. “They can see first-hand this is dividing their community and yet they bow to the special interests groups who are pushing an indoctrination program at the expense of true education.”

In fact, proponents of the curriculum are so dedicated to indoctrinating their young pupils that they refuse to include an opt-out provision for parents.

Disturbingly, when asked what protections would be afforded students with religious objections to the curriculum, school board member Mooney stated that they can object, but only at home. He arrogantly asserted that he “sees nothing wrong with homosexuality,” thus implying that those who disagree should keep their bigotry out of his school district.

“Mr. Mooney’s comment proves beyond a doubt that this is an agenda,” commented England. “Parental rights aren’t even a concern for these arrogant board members who act as though they are unelected, and unaccountable to Alameda residents. The message they unequivocally send to parents is that they believe parents are bigots and their bigoted children need to be reconditioned at school.”

It’s significant that during their testimony in support of the curriculum, some proponents of the LGBT curriculum referred to opposition as “bigoted” and “homophobic,” thus engaging in the very name calling they claim to want to end in our schools. One speaker opposed a parental opt-out because “You shouldn’t be allowed to opt-out because of bigotry.”

“The hypocrisy is astounding,” commented England. “Parents are being bullied into silence on this issue. In fact, opposition petitions delivered to the school board were asked to be returned at the end of the meeting for fear the names on the list would be published and the signers harassed. Even during the meeting, parents were made to feel that they were the outsiders, who have no say in the direction of their children’s education. We are committed to assisting these parents in taking back control of their schools.”

Parents are now planning to recall the board members who have chosen to side with radical social engineers over their constituents.

    wow, over 400 names on the petition, hundreds of parents at the several meetings, and they ignored all of them to force their way through.

    Did you catch the fear of reprisals in the first video clip? Outrageous.

    Since when is the LGBT community concerned about such nit picking details as common sense, legality, intended and unintended consequences, indoctrination into a morally poor ideology, negative effects on the children, contributions to promiscuity among youth, listening to parents and community, or any other social responsibility?

    Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!

    I call myself by the name my parents gave me. I do not refer to myself as my job title(EMT, Behavioral Health Professional, and Teacher) or by the things I do(Musician, Mechanic, Hiker, Cyclist, friend, son, husband, or father). I understand that I will be held responsible for my actions but i dont go around telling people Hey my beliefs make me a separate people or that my actions do. there is only one people it drives me crazy to hear the Gay community… are they a religion? are they a group of activists? what laws support their acts of controlling the public interests through fear? why are their actions being protected? the rights of the majority should be established and preserved. Where is the power that these people have? it is in the hands of those who uphold them. i dont like to say this but if these four hundred parents withdrew their children the school one would not have the power to restore them all. and the schools budget would quickly dwindle if they didnt take action. the school is an entity of the government the government receives its power from the people when the people give them no power they are left with empty threats and penniless budgets.
    please forgive my outrage. nothing i have said is meant to ensite sedition just readdress of a serious issue that parents have the right to raise their own children

    The only way to make the school districts hear the concerns of the parents at this point is to withdraw our children on those days, or on all days. If you can’t homeschool, then pull the kids out for those days. Dollars speak louder than words apparently. They’ve left the parents no other choice.

    Were these school board members not concerned about being re-elected? Hopefully these parents and concerned citizens can take their voice to the ballot box. Although, I suspect it won’t be soon enough.

    Schools have a big enough job to teach the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic without getting into the business of indoctrinating children in controversial moral issues. Promoting respect and tolerance does NOT mean insisting that everyone accept the same moral values. Anti-bullying efforts are appropriate in promoting a positive learning environment, but it appears this school board prefers to promote a negative environment and even to encourage children to disrespect their parents’ values. Tolerance and fairness should be taught by EXAMPLE.

    I’m confident that we’ll be kept updated on this subject and I’ll be anxious to hear what action the opposing parents did or did not take. I have a feeling that this school will be used as a role model for many more to come. As we can clearly see, the LGBT is following a planned agenda. They are counting on us to weaken until they can finally be in control. It’s all a high powered financed war against heterosexuals in general. Their goal is to educate our kids about homosexuality before they even consider sex. Do we really want our kids educated in alternate sexual lifestyles and be handed free passes to that which we oppose whether we like it or not?

    Sandy, I agree. The Capitol Resource Institute has been getting reports from other districts as well. Alameda was just getting a lot of press because it took the time to actually ask the parents first before making the decision. Other places just aren’t asking. They’re quietly making changes. It’s not unusual to have teachers attending mandatory “tolerance” training either. It’s not just the kids.

    There’s so much to keep track of that it gets mindboggling sometimes. Just imagine where we’d be w/o the Internet right now. Although I’m a long way from CA, I ask my granddaughters regularly if any homo-type comments or references are made by their teachers and they insist not yet. I am ready, willing and able to homeschool if necessary and pray my daughter will approve. She is my carbon copy, so I think she’d allow me to proceed. I pray that the Alameda parents put up such a fight that no other schools will want to follow their lead.
