The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has been forcing teachers across the country to follow certain guidelines demonstrating their commitment to “LGBTQ inclusivity” in their classroom instructions.
As reported by Breitbart, the CDC-issued “assessment tool” asks teachers numerous questions about school employees and their loyalty to the concept of “queer theory,” and forcing sexual education teachers to use gender-neutral language, forbidding them from using terms such as “boy” and “girl.”
The guidelines also urge teachers to advocate for membership in their school’s “Gay Straight Alliance,” and decorating their classrooms with gay pride flags and other pro-gay symbolism, as well as complacency in the “transitioning” of students who incorrectly believe they are of the opposite gender.
“The CDC’s imprimatur on this ‘self-assessment tool’ — and the inclusion of numerous links to resources and activist organizations — amounts to little more than bullying teachers, administrators, and school health professionals who might have reservations about ‘affirmation’ and ‘inclusion’ efforts in schools,” said Nicole Neily, president of the watchdog group Parents Defending Education. “It is troubling that during a global pandemic, this is where the CDC’s efforts were focused.”
The guidance, “LGBTQ Inclusivity in Schools: A Self-Assessment Tool,” was posted to the Twitter account of the CDC’s Division of Adolescent and School Health on Tuesday, claiming to provide the resources to make teachers into better “allies.” The post includes a three-tiered hierarchy of teachers based on their commitment to the cause, ranging from “minimally inclusive” to “highly inclusive.”
Despite the guidance being issued by a federal government entity, the CDC claimed that the requirements and instructions presented in the guidance are not mandatory.
