NEA Continues March to Fulfill LGBTQQ Agenda

leave a comment »

EDUCATION REPORTER – EAGLE FORUM

The National Education Association union decided in Denver that teachers need a new book list. In accordance with New Business Item 51, the “NEA will, using electronic resources, publish a list of Pre-K — Graduate School recommended books in the NEA Today that have LGBTQ and gender non-conforming themes.” The union will compile this list so that teachers can better promote Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning (LGBTQQ) lifestyles.

 

Just when it appeared that the NEA could not more heavily promote alternative sexual lifestyles nor place any more emphasis on teaching even very young children all manner of sexual behaviors, at the 2014 convention they surpassed themselves with a call to bring some of the most radical LGBTQQ organizations in the world into the nation’s classrooms.

Delegates adopted New Business Item 48, which is an effort to “influence state and local educational institutions through our affiliates to advocate for the use of the ‘Respect For All Project’ in classrooms.” GroundSpark’s Respect for All Project offers media resources, support, and training for educators about “bias and identity issues.” The organization claims its films engage students in “life-changing discussions” about gender, culture, and sexuality; family diversity; and LGBT-inclusivity. The program’s goal is to “promote respect and equity at the earliest age possible and on an ongoing basis.” (GroundSpark.org)

Delegates also adopted New Business Item 52, which states:

NEA will . . . influence state and local educational institutions through our affiliates to use GALE (Global Alliance for LGBT Education) and other vetted partners such as GLSEN (Gay-Lesbian Straight Education Network), Human Rights Campaign’s Welcoming Schools project, and the NEA Health Information Network to help all educators become a part of a global learning community which aims to promote the full inclusion of people who are disadvantaged because of their sexual orientation.

Human Rights Campaign

The Human Rights Campaign is a LGBTQQ political activism group. Their Welcoming Schools Campaign offers professional development tools “aligned with the Common Core State Standards, and many additional resources for elementary schools” about “family diversity,” “avoiding gender stereotyping,” and “bullying.” Welcoming Schools is aimed at K-5th grade students and “Be Who You Are” is one of their popular slogans. Their website states: “Young children receive many powerful messages about gender roles and gender identity. These gender roles pressure students to conform to behaviors that may limit their full developmental potential.” (HRC.org)

Global Alliance for LGBT Education

Another organization the NEA wants to welcome into public schools is the Global Alliance for LGBT Education (GALE), which focuses on “education about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues.” GALE favors the term “Disadvantaged because of their Expression of Sexual Preference Or Gender Identity,” or DESPOGI, over the usual LGBTQQ nomenclature. The organization offers workbooks for students, teacher manuals, videos, CDs, and posters. The GALE website provides international news about the promotion of LGBTQQ lifestyles and reports perceived slights of LGBTQQ individuals and groups internationally. GALE has a formal partnership with UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. (www.lgbt-education.info)

Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network

The NEA is also inviting the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN) into the nation’s classrooms. GLSEN “strives to [ensure] that each member of every school community is valued and respected regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/ expression.” They “believe that such an atmosphere engenders a positive sense of self, which is the basis of educational achievement and personal growth.” They claim that “homophobia and heterosexism undermine a healthy school climate.” Heterosexism is the belief that couples should be male and female.

GLSEN designs “programs and resources that are inclusive and celebratory of diversity, and sensitive to the role of power and privilege in society.” The organization is “committed” to seeing that their philosophy is promoted and “realized in K-12 schools.” GLSEN also offers an eight-step guide to starting Gay-Straight Alliance clubs at schools.

The NEA is not alone in joining with GLSEN to promote alternative lifestyles. The GLSEN website lists supporters and partners, such as Facebook, Google, and Disney/ABC. Additional supporters are more surprising and include: Comcast; Goldman Sachs, Citibank, State Farm Bank, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Target, HBO, AT&T, Cisco, DreamWorks, IBM, Hewlett Packard, Hilton, Kellogg’s, Johnson & Johnson, Colgate-Palmolive, McDonalds, Merck, Mattel, and the NBA.

The LGBTQQ brand has infiltrated corporate America and promoters have made great strides in changing public opinion to normalize what would have seemed outrageous just a few years ago. Much of this has been achieved by manipulating schoolchildren into believing that it is cruel or bullying to have any reservations about approving of “alternative” lifestyle choices; schools teach children it’s wrong to believe what their parents teach or to follow the teachings of Christian, Jewish, or Muslim religious organizations. Much of the radical change in outlook has been achieved in our neighborhood schools. Credit belongs to the National Education Association and teachers who follow the union’s marching orders.
