Parents say half of students stayed home in protest against LGBQT club held in secret at California elementary school

Parents of students in California school districts tidy A protest strike against an LGBTQ club was held without parental notification.

The LGBTQ+ group was founded by a third-grade teacher at Pleasant Grove Elementary School in the Elk Grove Unified District.

Brittani Cortina, a parent in the district, said, “Please deal with bullying. Don’t reveal secrets to parents.” “Don’t just think about that problem for students at school, but think about it for parents as well.”

“These little minds have no idea what this means to them,” said Pamela Davila, a parent at the elementary school. “I don’t think any of us have a problem with that topic. It’s just that they did it without informing their parents.”

The National Law and Policy Center, on behalf of the outraged parents, cease and desist letters sued the district over the controversial club.

“All evidence indicates that the Elk Grove Unified School District’s UBU Club, located at Pleasant Grove Elementary School, was intentionally operated as a secret children’s sexuality club designed to deceive and undermine parents and families with their views on human sexuality. “The evidence shows that this was designed and planned, and differs from the extreme ideological and political agenda of the Department of Youth Development, sympathetic administrators, and rogue teachers like Daniel Bishop,” NCLP said in the letter. Stated.

The group also said the teacher intentionally held the meeting during lunch to circumvent parent notification rules.

Parents told KTXL-TV that about half of the students were unable to attend school due to the protests.

Defenders of the secret LGBTQ club argued that it was necessary to advance an LGBTQ+ political agenda rather than defuse the situation.

Pleasant Grove Elementary School Principal Deidre Wood said in a letter to parents that the group’s purpose is to “support LGBTQ+ students in grades 3-6 and other interested students in grades 3-6. “and provide a safe place.”

She said children who attend club meetings are exposed to activities such as board games and puzzles in an environment designed to support “diverse families, affirm diverse identities, and celebrate the importance and value of diversity.” “I will participate in the activities,” he added.

Equality California activist Jorge Reyes Salinas argued that the club supports gender identity without necessarily discussing sex.

“You can talk about emotions and identity without talking about the mechanics of sex,” Salinas says. “It’s important for all students in the elementary school system to establish some kind of foundation of respect and understanding for all people, all students, and that’s what UBU is really working on.”

NCLP is threatening further legal action if the district does not agree to end club activities by April 10.
