Governor JB Pritzker recently signed into law a mandate that all elementary school students be taught the contributions of LGBT individuals and demonstrate competence in this topic prior to receiving their grade school diploma. While this was another in a recent string of victories for the LGBTQ movement, it is also in stark contrast to what the movement stood for in the past – which was that a person’s sexual orientation was irrelevant to that person’s qualifications for any job and was a purely private matter.
So why the change? Should children as young as kindergarten be taught about sexual orientation and transgenderism? Does teaching children about these issues at such a tender age trample upon the rights of parents to instruct their children’s moral upbringing? And if so, what can be done about it?
These topics and more will be discussed by Peter LaBarbera at the next meeting of the Conservative Reform Republicans on October 5 as we present “LGBTQ education in elementary school — anti-bullying or indoctrination.”
