Pushing the No-Gender Agenda: The National Education Association (NEA)–the nation’s largest teachers’ union–has adopted an initiative to ‘encourage K-12 teachers’ to watch a series of films entitled Creating Gender Inclusive Schools.
By now, parents who think they are sending their kids to public schools to get educated in the basic necessities (e.g., math, science, reading, and social studies) in order to get good jobs, become productive citizens and live prosperous lives should know that schools have become petri dishes for social indoctrination in many cases.
In large measure, this has taken place as a result of the large control the nation’s two biggest teachers’ unions have to set the agenda among their memberships in terms of what is taught in public schools.
During the convention, the NEA contemplated dozens of proposals, either rejecting or passing many of them.
One of the NEA proposals that passed was New Business Item 11, which calls for “all state and local affiliates encourage K-12 teachers to view a series of films called Creating Gender Inclusive Schools.”
Its purpose, according to the NEA’s site, is “to create inclusive communities for all youth, regardless of where they fall on the spectrum of gender identity and expression.”
New Business Item 11 states:
NEA shall, using existing digital media, have all state and local affiliates encourage K-12 teachers to view a series of films called Creating Gender Inclusive Schools and use the accompanying study guides of the Youth and Gender Media Project (visit youthandgendermediaproject.org) to create inclusive communities for all youth, regardless of where they fall on the spectrum of gender identity and expression.
One of the most important things we do as educators is make sure that every single child in our class feels safe-physically and emotionally. This includes students who may be struggling with their gender identity and/or expression. [Emphasis added.]
The link the NEA’s Business Item 11 refers to the Youth and Gender Media Project “which produces short films and curricula that capture the diversity and complexity of young people who are questioning the binary (male/female) concept of gender.”
The Youth and Gender Media Project produces slick videos, such as this one, that show teachers in the classroom teaching children about gender neutrality:
Never mind the fact that many existing teachers may not agree with the NEA’s political agenda—more than one in three NEA members voted for President Trump in 2016—the question that should be asked is whether parents who send their children to public schools agree with the NEA’s no-gender agenda.
