Parents bolt from CA school over pro-transgender policy

Gender Unicorn (sex unknown)Parents are yanking their children from a respected charter school in California after the board of education refused to listen to parents' concerns.

California law requires parents to be informed about sex education lessons in advance but the school board for Rocklin Academy claims that lessons about transgenderism don't qualify.

Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute says the school district is claimig that discussing transgenderism, and children changing their gender, is a noncontroversial topic. 

"And they're saying it doesn't qualify as sex education," he warns.

Dacus, Brad (PJI)The parents-versus-Rocklin feud merited a September story in The Washington Times, which explained that an "exodus" of students began after a teacher read two books about transgenders to a kindergarten class in 2016.

Responding to that incident, the school board voted down a parent notification policy and parents, responding to that decision, have yanked their kids. 

The story went on to suggest there is disagreement over how many students have left - as many as 73 children from 41 families according to the spokeswoman for a pro-family organization. A school spokeswoman claims only 29 children, from 14 families, have left the school. 

It's obvious, Dacus says, that the school intends to proselytize pupils at the earliest age possible to accept the homosexual life as perfectly normal.

"The intent of the school is very clear," he tells OneNewsNow. "It's to brainwash and indoctrinate children as young as they can, as early as they can, into accepting transgenderism and actually seeing it as a valid option that they should consider."
