Left-wing loons shamelessly pandering to an incredibly small percentage of the population, this is beyond stupid.
School Told to Call Kids ‘Purple Penguins’ Because ‘Boys and Girls’ Is Not Inclusive to Transgender
A Nebraska school district has instructed its teachers to stop referring to students by “gendered expressions” such as “boys and girls,” and use “gender inclusive” ones such as “purple penguins” instead.And as always the superintendent pompously sits there and tells parents basically,"who cares what you think?" and then tries to claim they don't get involved in politics or gender.Like denying it makes it rue.
“Don’t use phrases such as ‘boys and girls,’ ‘you guys,’ ‘ladies and gentlemen,’ and similarly gendered expressions to get kids’ attention,” instructs a training document given to middle-school teachers at the Lincoln Public Schools.
“Create classroom names and then ask all of the ‘purple penguins’ to meet on the rug,” it advises.
The document also warns against asking students to “line up as boys or girls,” and suggests asking them to line up by whether they prefer “skateboards or bikes/milk or juice/dogs or cats/summer or winter/talking or listening.”
“Always ask yourself . . . ‘Will this configuration create a gendered space?’” the document says.~snip~
You know it's way past time to demand that schools simply get back to teaching reading,writing and math. It hasn't happened in so long I don't think they know how any more.
The only answer is to wrest control of schools away from the federal government, who are joined at the hip with teachers unions and the democrat party, and giving control back to the local school districts.
Until then the none stop indoctrination of our children will continue.
