Parents Livid and Kids Traumatized After Kindergarten Teacher Leads Celebration of Student's Transgender "Transition"

Lianne Laurence : Aug 22, 2017  LifeSiteNews.com

The school states it didn't have to tell parents about the transgenderism lesson because gender identity isn't sex education so it's not subject to California's parental consent and opt-out laws.

But Rocklin Academy Schools has countered that it didn't have to tell parents about the transgenderism lesson that has left a number of five-year-olds shaken and disturbed. Because gender identity isn't sex education, the administration said, it's not subject to California's parental consent and opt-out laws, reported Fox40 News.

Moreover, with gender identity and gender expression prohibited grounds for discrimination in the state, not to accept a five-year-old "trans girl" could leave the Sacramento-area charter school board open to lawsuits.

Parents only found out what happened from their kids, says Jonathan Keller of the California Family Council, a Focus on the Family-founded group that's advising parents.

Rocklin Academy Gateway's kindergarten teacher gave the lesson on transgenderism because a boy in the class is transitioning to a girl, Keller told LifeSiteNews.

During the lesson on the second-to-last day before summer break, the teacher read two books, "I am Jazz" and "The Red Crayon," that purport to explain "transgenderism" to children aged four to eight, Fox40News reported.

"I am Jazz" is particularly explicit, beginning "From the time she was two years old, Jazz knew that she had a girl's brain in a boy's body."

But the "huge bombshell" was that the teacher didn't just read the books but "essentially put on this more-or-less transition ceremony" for the child, says Keller.

After the teacher introduced the five-year-old student to the class as a boy, he then went into the bathroom and emerged dressed as a girl.

The teacher then reintroduced "her" to the children, explaining "she" was now a "girl" who now had a girl's name and was to be called that from now on.

That left a number of kids "really deeply emotionally bothered and traumatized," Keller said.

"There were several of the little girls that went to their parents and were crying and saying, ‘mommy or daddy, am I going to turn into a boy?'"

And a boy who hadn't given "gender" a single thought before is now asking his mother if he can dress as a girl for school, added Keller.

Responding to backlash from parents, principal Jillayne Antoon sent out a letter a week later that did not mention transgenderism, reported Fox40 News.

Nor did it mention the transition ceremony or the teacher presenting the boy as a girl to his five-year-old classmates.

Antoon maintained the books were "age appropriate" and that the school's non-discrimination policy "protects all students, including on the basis of gender, gender identity and gender expression."

The teacher, however, never sought approval from the administration before using the books, according to Fox40 News.  

The board has now adopted the policy that books outside the curriculum have to be approved.

LifeSiteNews contacted the school board but did not hear back by deadline.

District Superintendent Robin Stout told Fox40 News that parents were not notified because kids can't opt out of gender identity and expression lessons...
