The Kentucky Department of Education is now officially engaging in LGBT Advocacy. Last week it launched an initiative called Building Safe and Supportive Schools for LGBTQI+ Students. They advocate “an inclusive curriculum… that is affirming to all students. They also encourage teachers to use the preferred names and pronouns of students and recommend that teachers don’t inform parents of a student’s gender identity unless given permission by the student. They have links to LGBT activist websites, and it’s not clear as to what the Department of Education believes to be age appropriate. This is problematic since parents expect their children to learn how to read and write in public school. What they don’t expect is LGBT indoctrination.
