New Development: Drag Queen Story Hour and the ALA
The American Library Association (ALA) receives millions in federal funding. The proposed 2021 federal budget cuts funding to the library association. ALA is lobbying for continued federal funding. “ALA encourages everyone—library workers and library lovers alike—to email their members of Congress today and urge them to protect library funding in FY 2021.”
Any public funding needs to come with strong prohibitions against sponsoring and promoting LGBT and Drag Queen events. We, too, need contact our federal legislators and urge them to stop funding the ALA! Find your legislators at Who Represents Me?
For background information and additional action steps, see Drag Queen Story Hour Exposed.

Can Kids Really Access Porn through their Chrome Books?
Is your school telling you that your child is safe from dangerous material with their Chromebooks? If your school is using the search engine database EBSCO accessible through the Minnesota ELibrary (ELM), you may want to know that children can access hard core pornography through this system.

Privacy and Mental Health Research on Child Harm and Legal Liability

Child Protection League has released and published this landmark, comprehensive, and exhaustive scientific and legal research on the harm done to children when their privacy is violated.

Racial Quotas in School Policies
Upon recommendation of the Federal Commission studying school safety, acting U.S. Attorney General Whitaker rescinded the Obama-era “Racial Equity in School Discipline” directive that disregarded federal law and subjected public school students to two-tiered discipline based on race. However, the Dayton administration anticipated this sea change and initiated its own racial quotas directive. In October of 2017, the MN Department of Human Rights (MDHR) sent a letter to 43 school districts informing them that they have a “racial discipline disparity” in violation of the MN Human Rights Act. Unless they entered into a “settlement agreement” with the state, they would file charges and investigate them for civil rights violations. Minnesota is full steam ahead implementing the racial quotas in school discipline in schools throughout the state.
Is Your School Teaching Islam?
Schools are teaching Islam in the guise of “culture” and diversity. But is that really what is happening? Teachers are attending training on Islam by Islamic educators backed by organizations such as CAIR, curriculum is being introduced about the Islam to as young as grade schoolers. Is it culture or indoctrination? Read more about Islam in your school….
This is what Comprehensive Sex Education (CSE) is: Your child can have any kind of sex anywhere, anytime, with anybody, at any age, and it’s perfectly normal. Is that okay with you?
SIECUS, the umbrella organization of Planned Parenthood, has launched a national movement to advance Comprehensive Sex Education (CSE) in every state and in every school in the nation. In 2019, a majority of the MN House voted to mandate (HF1414) every PreK-12 public/charter
school to teach CSE.

Did You Know?
As far back as the early 90’s, Barbara Dafoe Whitehead and David Blankenhorn, among others, reported on the overwhelming body of social-scientific evidence that children from intact families have the greatest measures of success in all areas of life, including education achievement. Political leaders generally don’t include this evidence in their “conversations”, so they continue throwing ineffective, counterproductive ‘solutions’ at the problem, such as more money, federal intrusions, race-equity plans, and social emotional learning (SEL), that have no impact on our stubborn achievement gap.
