Seattle Middle School Teacher Made Students Write Hate Mail to Moms for Liberty

Sarah Holliday : Nov 29, 2023  The Washington Stand

"...Are these children reading at a high enough proficiency to help kindergarteners with ABCs? Based on their test scores, one [would] think they might not be, and that a better use of their club time, rather than sending passive aggressive missives to Moms for Liberty, might be to improve their reading and writing scores." -Meg Kilgannon, senior fellow for Education Studies at Family Research Council

[WashingtonStand.com] Moms for Liberty, a conservative parental rights group, received a surprise package from Jane Addams Middle School in Seattle. It consisted of letters that appeared to be written by the middle school students with phrases such as "Say Gay," "Gay is slay, stop being a rat," and a repeated use of "Stop bullying."

The social studies teacher, Ann Christianson, included her own note, which read, "Dear Moms for Liberty, please read the enclosed cards from concerned middle school students in Seattle, WA." Christianson is also the coordinator of the Gay-Straight Alliance at the school.

The mothers' group posted pictures of the package on X, writing, "Seattle Public Schools are spending class time indoctrinating and weaponizing your children." And the Jane Addams Middle School report card seems to affirm their claim that students' time is not as prioritized on learning as it should be. According to The Post Millennial, "38.6 percent of students failed to meet the grade level in English. Almost half the students failed to meet the grade level in mathematics and 34.2 percent failed to meet the grade level standard in science."

But this isn't the first time this Seattle school district has promoted progressive ideas. Shortly after the 2020 George Floyd riots, Seattle Public Schools removed police from campuses and promoted the "defund the police" movement. Schools in the district have also offered free "gender-affirming care," including hormone blockers and gender transition surgery referrals for middle and high school students.

Meg Kilgannon, senior fellow for Education Studies at Family Research Council, commented to The Washington Stand, "The most important lesson a school club can teach is the value of serving others. The best student clubs are the ones that serve others in love—by visiting the elderly in nursing homes, working at food banks or soup kitchens, or performing volunteer service at the school itself."

She continued, "Are these children reading at a high enough proficiency to help kindergarteners with ABCs? Based on their test scores, one [would] think they might not be, and that a better use of their club time, rather than sending passive aggressive missives to Moms for Liberty, might be to improve their reading and writing scores."

For Kilgannon, this controversy should prompt a lot of questions from local parents: "Who paid for the postage and supplies? How did they decide where to send the letters? Were the parents of the students who sent the letters allowed to know their child participates in such a club at school?" The Post Millennial's Ari Hoffman attempted to reach the school to get some answers, but he received only an auto-reply message from the teacher responsible for the hate mail that stated she was on a leave of absence.

"As a mom and as someone who gets 'love letters' like these from time to time," Kilgannon added, "I can assure you that the effect of these letters is to strengthen the resolve of Moms for Liberty, a group that loves ALL children and works in the tireless service of human rights. We should join with Moms for Liberty members in praying for these students and the teachers who directed this sad little project."

Kilgannon concluded, "We live in the greatest country in the world; our school children and families deserve much more than this demeaning exploitation." Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
