Can we Please Leave Transgender Awareness Lessons to Parents

February 7, 2016

trans-awareness

 

If there was a transgender student in your class, you would certainly focus on transgender awareness in the classroom. But aside from this scenario, it is important that these types of conversations should be left to the parents. Teachers are inundated as it is and we need as much time as possible to cover the curriculum.

Sure the outcry of transgender awareness lessons will usually come from religious groups, but spare a thought for stressed out teachers with a very overblown curriculum to cover as it is:

 

A MOTHER has withdrawn her children from Frankston High School after the introduction of a new program to promote transgender awareness.

Cella White says her 14-year-old son was told he could wear a dress to school and that male-born students who identified as female could use the girls’ change rooms and toilets.

The government-funded program by the Safe Schools Coalition is designed to promote inclusiveness for ‘same sex attracted, intersex and gender diverse’ students, but critics say it is indoctrinating children in sexual identity politics under the pretence of a bulling program.

“It was announced in science class that boys could wear school dresses next year,” Ms White said.

“They’re telling my children to call transgender children by their requested pronoun.

“What is the benefit to my son? He’s got a learning disability, he’s struggling with his times tables, he doesn’t need to deal with this.”
