Apparently, they plan on training students more about LGBTQ issues in a diabolical attempt to indoctrinate students with their leftist ideology and confuse their natural instincts about gender and sexuality.
According to reports, the new curriculum, which was developed by a group of educators from the Massachusetts Safe Schools Program for LGBTQ Students and the Massachusetts Commission on LGBTQ Youth, will work to incorporate LGBTQ-themes into subjects such as history, English, and health.
Students will also repotredly be taught about “the 1969 Stonewall Riots and writings by gay and lesbian authors such as Langston Hughes and Willa Cather.” On top of that, they’ll also be taught “lessons like how Nick Carraway’s love for Jay Gatsby may have influenced themes in The Great Gatsby.”
Unsurprisingly, the new curriculum received a massive amount of support from countless LGBTQ activists. One of the most vocal proponents of the new training was Jeff Perrotti, the director of the Massachusetts Safe Schools Program for LGBTQ Students.
“We talk about mirrors and windows. Students need to see themselves reflected and see others who are different from themselves,” explained Perrotti while speaking to reporters about his organization’s support for the new curriculum.
“It is important that all students feel safe, valued and respected in school so they can be ready to learn,” he noted.
“If students don’t see themselves in the curriculum, they are not as likely to pay attention,” added Corey Prachniak-Rincon, the director of the Massachusetts Commission on LGBTQ Youth.
“It is a huge demand we hear from teachers. They recognize part of the reason why LGBTQ students feel excluded is they’re not reflected and that part of their identity is ignored,” he reasoned after he was also asked about why his organization worked to develop the curriculum.
The new LGBTQ-themed curriculum, however, is terribly misguided. This is because, according to some experts, like Dr. Paul R. McHugh, who used to be the psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and is currently its Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, those who confuse a child’s natural instincts about gender and sexuality, promoting things like sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.
“This intensely felt sense of being transgendered constitutes a mental disorder in two respects. The first is that the idea of sex misalignment is simply mistaken – it does not correspond with physical reality. The second is that it can lead to grim psychological outcomes,” explained McHugh in an article published in 2016.
Educators and the curriculum have the ability to shape the opinions of the majority of students. Such liberal programming is evident through out the nation, and the world.
In addition to the state schools in Massachusetts, outraged liberal activists also recently targeted a high school in Georgia. They apparently did so after school officials informed two gay students that they wouldn’t be able to win this year’s prom court as a couple because the “school rules require a king and a queen, not a king and a king.”
According to reports, the incident began when officials at Chattahoochee High School told Joel Lerner and Carter Hebert, a gay couple at the school who’ve been together for roughly 6 months, that since the school “maintains the tradition of a king and queen,” they would not be allowed to be nominated for “prom king and king.”
Upon hearing the news, which they called “heartbreaking,” they accused the school of discrimination.This is because, according to the website LGBTQ Nation, “students say that a heterosexual couple is up for nomination this year and a straight couple won last year.”
On top of that, they also started a petition on Change.org to try and pressure the school into changing their mind.
In response to the petition, the school officials told the couple that while they’re open to changing the rules in the future if that’s what the student’s want, they can’t do anything this year because “voting for a king and queen has already started.”
Shortly after receiving their response, the students decided to update their petition and make it about the future.
And prior to that, students attending the soon-to-be-renamed Robert E. Lee High School in the North East Independent School District (ISD) voted to replace their current campus logo, which features “13 stars and ‘Grumpy Gus,’ a cartoon Confederate soldier bearing the signature red and gray campus colors,” with a “rendering of a service dog.”
In addition to the service dog, the school’s motto, the “Volunteers,” and the school’s future name, “Legacy of Educational Excellence” (LEE) High, were also featured in the new logo, which will roll out at the start of the 2018-19 school year.
These changes, which will cost approximately $300,000, come after the North East ISD board of trustees reportedly “voted to re-imagine their campus named for Confederate General Robert E. Lee with a more welcoming 21st Century moniker” following the violence that erupted at a protest-turned-riot in Charlottesville, Virginia, back in August 2017.
The school officials, however, won’t get rid of any of the school’s “many honors, trophies, and awards accumulated during its 60 years of operation.” Instead, they’re planning on keeping them in an “on-campus museum” which will be open to the public.
Sadly, Robert E. Lee High’s mascot and name weren’t the only “offensive” things to be recently targeted by politically correct leftists. They’re also currently going after renowned Indian activist Mahatma Gandhi.
In Canada, Kenneth Aliu, an African studies student and the current president of Carleton’s African Studies Student Association, and other far-left students at Carleton University, which is located in Ottawa, Ontario, are currently pushing to remove a statue of Gandhi because he’s purportedly a racist misogynist.
The authoritarian left must not be allowed to use Massachusetts schools, or any public school, to further their political agenda. To stop this from happening, conservative parents in the state must speak up and make it clear that they’re not okay with liberals using taxpayer-funded education to indoctrinate children with their absurd ideas.
