Oakland, California

Here is link to story in SF Chronicle.



They are actually telling teachers to instruct children that "kids can be boys, girls, both or neither!"



Greetings - below please find a letter by PJI trying to inform parents of the objectionable and potentially harmful instructional curriculum being used in Oakland, California public schools as part of tolerance and diversity training.  The curriculum materials being used were shared by the principal and instruction started yesterday. 


Especially note the "damaging parenting" document which instructs parents that teaching their children that God will condemn them for choosing alternative sexual lifestyle is damaging to kids.  Also, throughout these materials, they indicate to teach kids that "kids can be boys, girls, both or neither gender." Parents need to be made aware of this so they can act accordingly and put an end to this nonsense in Oakland.  


Any assistance in helping spread the word about this to parents is greatly appreciated.

Oakland Elementary School Teaches Pupils That There Are More Than Two Genders

On May 23-24 Redwood Heights Elementary School will be teaching children in grades kindergarten through fifth that there are more than two genders.  The two days calendared for this are called "Gender Spectrum Diversity Training."  In documents released by the school, students will be taught that "gender is not inherently nor solely connected to one's physical anatomy."  Further, gender is a "complex interrelationship between [physical traits] and one's internal sense of self as male, female, both or neither as well as one's outward presentations and behaviors related to that perception."  Another document from the school advises parents:  "When you discuss gender with your child, you may hear them [sic] exploring where they fit on the gender spectrum and why."At this point, we do not know if this is the only school in the Oakland Unified School District which has gender diversity training.  

Unfortunately, many parents in the school are unaware that this is being taught.  If you are a parent, you may consider keeping your child home that day.
