Public schools are the center for child abuse in the United States. We’ll point to Michigan as the poster state for this.
Michigan’s State Board of Education has drafted a guidance that would push the state’s schools to allow all students, regardless of parental or doctoral input, to choose their gender, name, pronouns, and bathrooms.
Spearheaded by board president John C. Austin and signed by State Superintendent Brian Whiston, the guidance informs Michigan Public Schools that only the students themselves–i.e. not their parents or doctors–can determine what their individual gender identities are.
When I was in high school I’m pretty sure, given “guidance” like this, we would have fielded an all girls football team. If you can’t understand that slap yourself.
The state board’s guidance also extends to making sure the parents are in the dark if their student (NOTE: not “their child”) decides to tell a teacher they have strange ideas about their gender. It’s none of the parent’s business. Kind of like getting an abortion. None of the parent’s business.
Giving the kid an aspirin requires a parent’s permission and a note from a doctor. But an abortion or using the wrong shower, nope.
The Michigan Board of Education knew this would be met with such applause from the Social Justice community that the regulations were issued a month ago without public notice.
I wonder if a lynch mob of parents showing up at the Michigan Board of Education would be met with no reporting.
