Walsh Middle School in Texas has developed a program promoting transgender ideology without approval from the school district.
Alarmingly, the program includes withholding information from parents. The district board is now reviewing the incident.
The materials also provided a guide to teachers on how to interact with transgender and nonbinary students, including how to correct oneself after misgendering someone.
The teachers were also encouraged to correct students who misgendered a transgender or nonbinary individual and to avoid using gendered language in general.
The exercises in the training included one that asked the teachers to figure out “how long can you go in a conversation without using or needing to use a gendered pronoun? Can you notice when other people use gendered pronouns? How do people react to singular they?”
One slide told teachers that “strangers,” including school counselors, are “dangerous” to transgender students because “they can ruin your entire life, get you kicked out of your home by your parents, or make other teachers treat you awfully and make your school experience miserable.”
This is one more example in a growing line of schools actively usurping parental rights and denying parental consent regarding transgender ideology. Several parents have already sued over similar programs in schools in the US.
Binary spokeswoman, Kirralie Smith, said activists are relentless.
“Parents must be engaged and across what their child’s school policy is regarding transgender ideology,” she said.
“It is every parent’s right to know. It is important to question the school on bathroom policy, sports policy, accommodation for excursions and pronouns.
“Ask your school if programs or strategies are employed in the school that promote the denial of biological sex.
“Most important, speak with your children and educate them about what is acceptable and what they need to share with you as their primary caregiver.”
