LGBT agenda in early gradesFrustrated parents in Ohio have won their fight against the LGBTQ agenda their local middle school forced on students without their knowledge or permission.

Mass Resistance reports that in October 2019, Van Buren Middle School in Kettering held a school-wide assembly that parents were not informed about. It featured an alumnus of the school, an openly homosexual comic and voice actor named Maulik Pancholy.

"Once the parents found out about this, they really rallied together and demanded that the school no longer do this and that the school should not have the right to distribute this kind of materials without parental permission," reports Stephanie Curry, public policy manager at the Family Policy Alliance.

In addition to agreeing to notify parents in advance of controversial events, Van Buren Middle School will now give parents an option to opt-out of such presentations.

"Parents now have the right to opt their child out in writing," Curry continues. "And if the parent does not fill out a form, the school has agreed to automatically opt out all children whose parents are, for whatever reason, unable to get the form returned."

Curry says schools all across the country are attempting to expose radical LGBTQ programs and materials presented to students underneath parental radars.
