Brooke Roslindale School, a Boston area charter school, had a unique way to explain what OB/GYNs do at birth.
In an “identity Share” class, the assistant principal and a first grade teach Ray Skyer were teaching their 6 year olds and Skyer said “So when babies are born, the doctor looks at them and they make a guess about whether the baby is a boy or girl.” and then went on to explain about “transgender” and “cisgender” and that he was a transgender.
It is probably a sign of my age to say “I remember when…” but when I was in first grade, I didn’t know whether any of my teachers were married or single or if they had any surgeries and no one felt the need to teach elementary school kids to question their sex. Yet, that is not the case today and there is a n agenda being pushed to teach kids about alternate lifestyles at the same time they are learning how to count and to know their colors. And THAT is why Florida passed a law to re-focus early education on things that matter, rather than on a social agenda that is totally inappropriate for the age.
