This revealing editorial, “NJ gender-identity lessons for first graders prove parents were right to worry,” by Karol Marcowicz was prominently displayed in the New York Post over the weekend.
The disturbing lesson plans are being foisted upon young children, teaching them that their gender is malleable.
Randi Weingarten, the former president of the American Federation of Teachers, (AFT) wields tremendous clout as an AFL–CIO union leader and a lawyer. She is also a lesbian married to another woman as reported in Teachers for Choice, an organization that opposes government imposed medical mandates in order for any Americans — especially educators — to remain employed. To no one’s surprise, Weingarten has long opposed charter schools and school choice.
The AFT was the first national union to endorse Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential primaries. These are the people who influence America’s students each and every weekday.
Open Secrets reveals teachers unions have steadily amped up their political involvement: From 2004 to 2016, their donations grew from $4.3 million to more than $32 million — an all-time high. Even more than most labor unions, they have little use for Republicans, giving democrats at least 94 percent of the funds they contributed to candidates and parties since as far back as 1990, where Open Secrets data begins. Check out where they see fit to place their considerable resources.
This is all important reading.
