    Federal Court: Parents in Maryland School District Cannot Opt K-5 Children Out of LGBTQ Curriculum

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...tq-curriculum/

    16 May 2024

    A federal court on Wednesday upheld a Maryland school district policy that does not allow parents to opt their young K-5 children out of curriculum about gender identity and sexuality.

    In a 2-1 panel decision released by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, federal judges affirmed a lower court decision denying the request of religious parents to block the policy issued by the Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) board in March of 2023. Judge G. Steven Agee, a President George W. Bush appointee, wrote the majority opinion stating that parents did not present enough evidence to show that the policy violates the free exercise of their religion and their due process right to direct their children’s education.

    “We take no view on whether the Parents will be able to present evidence sufficient to support any of their various theories once they have the opportunity to develop a record as to the circumstances surrounding the Board’s decision and how the challenged texts are actually being used in schools,” Agee wrote.

    “At this early stage, however, given the Parents’ broad claims, the very high burden required to obtain a preliminary injunction, and the scant record before us, we are constrained to affirm the district court’s order denying a preliminary injunction.”

    The Muslim, Jewish, and Christian parents, represented by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, argued that the district’s refusal to allow their young children to opt out of reading of LGBTQQIAAP2S+-themed books or participation in the curriculum violated their right to raise their children in accordance with their faith and how their faith defines identity and sexuality. Parents also argued the material is not age-appropriate for such young students.

    This is probably a good thing.

    Maybe this is what will get people to remove their children from the 'gubmint training camp.

    There is no reforming the skool system at this point.

    We need to starve it.

    I do not like the voucher system as practiced in some places, but I do like anything that reduces their revenue.

    Good. Some people just have to learn the hard way that sometimes the best (or only) way to deal with a rotten system is not to try to reform it, but to walk away and let the gangrene devour and kill it.

    Parents only found out after the student was charged with r*pe and it was reported in the news.

    “On this day, we reflect upon the violence and discrimination lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, *****, and intersex (LGBTQI+) persons worldwide suffer and re-commit ourselves to opposing these acts,” Blinken said in a statement. “This year, like every year, we state unequivocally: LGBTQI+ persons deserve recognition of their universal human rights and human dignity.”

    “On this day and every day, the United States stands with LGBTQI+ persons around the world,” he added. “We will continue to advocate for the rights of LGBTQI+ persons not just because we have a moral imperative to do so, but because it helps to strengthen democracy, bolster national security, and promote global health and economic development.”

    Parents should STFU and stop hating on democracy, national security, global health and economic development.

    They should just keep their minds upon their labors, and leave matters of the State to the State.

    Parents instead should opt their kids out of the school system.
