Kindergarten Teacher Performs A ‘Transition Ceremony’ Without Parents Knowledge

There are many things to be concerned about when you send your child off to school. You have to think about bullies, inappropriate discussions, and your child making the right friends.

Usually, somewhere near last on the list, would be having to worry about your child’s teacher presenting inappropriate material.

Young minds are impressionable and trusting. And teachers our entrusted to shape our children’s minds for the better. The information presented to our kids should protect them from worldly circumstances that are beyond their current understanding. Speaking on such things can be suggestive rather than informative.

But a teacher in California has done just that, and has grossly violated the trust of her students and their parents.

The Daily Wire reported:

“[a teacher] held a “transition ceremony” to celebrate what she believed was the “transgenderism” of a five-year-old boy in her class who fancies himself a girl, and she did it without obtaining consent from, or even notifying, parents.”

The teacher had the boy go into the bathroom and then “come out” in front of the class dressed in girl’s clothes. She then gave the young boy a girl’s name and instructed the class to now call him by the girl’s name.

The school, Rocklin Academy Gateway, is a charter school in Sacramento. The administration of this establishment have stood by the teacher’s reprehensible actions, even though they claim they had no knowledge she was going to perform this ‘ceremony’.

Parents were angry for many reasons. Not only did the teacher not seek permission to expose their children to transgender ideologies, but she read controversial books to the children purporting transgender legitimacy.

Activist Mom reported:

The teacher then read from two books, “I am Jazz” and “The Red Crayon,” purporting to explain what it means to be transgender.

“I am Jazz” begins with, “From the time she was two years old, Jazz knew that she had a girl’s brain in a boy’s body.”

The parents, who heard about these events from their children, are seeking legal action and are in a position to collect damages.

Activist Mom reported:

“Upset parents have contacted the Pacific Justice Institute and the California Family Council to represent them.”

Worse still, the school administration did not even address the matter until their phones were flooded with complaints from parents. At that point, they sent out a letter explaining how they didn’t do anything wrong and were not liable.

The Daily Wire reported:

“The school’s principal, Jillayne Antoon, has not apologized and told parents in a letter, sent a week after the lesson, that 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.””

However, the legal representation for these parents holds a different viewpoint:

“The majority of parents who had children in this kindergarten did not think that it would be age appropriate,” Pacific Justice Institute President Brad Dacus said.

California law protects and allows transgender topics to be discussed in schools as part of the “tolerance and diversity” curricula. The Sacramento school district claims that because there was no talk of sex or reproductive organs—currently the only topics that require parental consent—the school is legally protected.

The legal ramifications, however, will not come from a lack of parental consent, but for the psychological damage of the children who had to bear witness to this perversion of biology.

Activist Mom reported:

Jonathan Keller of the California Family Council group that’s advising the parents, 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?’””

The irony is that the school board said in a meeting on July 31 that “not reading the [transgender] books would put them at risk of discrimination and expose them to a potential lawsuit.”

It is disheartening this is the prevailing thought in society. We have gone so far to one side that there is more protection for those who want to distort the way we were created, than protection for those who want to validate the bodies we were uniquely designed to have.

Michelle Cretella, President of the American College of Pediatrics, stated:

Having an authority figure teach the myth that a child can be trapped in the wrong body will potentially lead to fear that they aren’t the sex their bodies clearly indicate,”

In addition, Life Site News reported that Cretella has denounced:

“Institutions that promote transition affirmation” as engaging in “nothing less than institutionalized child abuse” that can inflict “untold psychological damage.”

Cretella goes on to speak on the correct approach we should take with our children when discussing transgender issues:

All children should be told the truth that sex does not ever change and cannot be changed. All children should be nurtured to embrace their bodies and the reality of their biological sex. All children should be affirmed as the unique boys or girls their bodies proclaim them to be.”

Jonathan Keller of the California Family Council, a Focus on the Family-founded group that advises parents, says what occurred at Rocklin Academy is another instance of the “growing effort in Western democracies to try to fracture the relationship between parents and their children, and to make children wards of the state.”

We must be informed of the curricula being taught to our children. We must educate ourselves on our state’s legislation and what the state feels we do—or do not need—to be made aware of when concerning our own children.

Meet the teachers at your children’s schools. Ask them the hard questions about what they would be willing to present to a classroom. Make them aware where you draw the line on topics to discuss with your children.

Protecting the values of your family is vital. There will always be someone in our children’s lives who are ready to rip them apart.
