PEAK INSANITY: First grader sent to principal's office for “misgendering” student

StaffRebel Columnist

Rocklin Academy in California is proving to be one of the worst schools in America.

Not only did a kindergarten teacher have a “gender reveal” party for a male student, but parents weren't even made aware or given a chance to have their five-year-olds opt out of the activity.

According to Fox News, school leaders informed moms and dads that their children were not allowed to opt out and the state did not require them to notify parents.

The activity left some students stunned and concerned.

“My daughter came home crying and shaking so afraid she could turn into a boy,” the parent of of a kindergartner said.

And now, students are actually getting in trouble if they “misgender” fellow students. Fox reports that the incident occurred during the first week of school when a first grader called a student by his given name on the playground.

“This innocent little first grader sees a classmate, calls him by the name she knew him last year and the boy reports it to a teacher,” Capitol Resource Institute’s Karen England told Fox. “The little girl gets in trouble on the playground and then gets called out of class to the principal’s office.”

After an hour-long “investigation” by the principal, it was determined the girl hadn't intentionally “bullied” the transgender student by calling him by his given name. Regardless, the girl was traumatized and told her mother what had happened.

“I stressed over and over with the principal that I am all for protecting the rights of [the transgender child], but my children have rights as well,” the girl's mother wrote in a letter. “It makes me sad that my daughter felt like she was punished for trying to be kind to the kid.”

La-La Land, the land of Liberal idiots. A 5 year old transmutant? ……….. Give me a break!!!!

Too bad the normal kids growing up there will be screwed up beyond recognition.

Well, you just don’t get it!
The school you are strongly defending is wrong. The teacher was in violation of curriculum standards and guidelines when she read Being Jazz to kindergarten students; the gender reveal party was another violation – Administrator realized error and tried to sweep it under the carpet. Parents were kept in the dark. Young SJW contravenes Education Act, she should be fired, along with the Principal.
Now, the students are in grade one. SJW ideology carried forward. It’s like expecting grade three students to grasp and master high school calculus….

Oh the horror you say…. if you decide to have children and your child is interrogated at school for some perceived crime; and comes home very upset & confused; let’s see how you react then.

Oh, the horror. The kids were exposed to something they’re going to have to deal with in the real world.

The kid was investigated to make sure it wasn’t an incident of bullying. It wasn’t. The underlying circumstances leading to the mistake are irrelevant.

Whether you agree with little kids crossdressing or not… is irrelevant. It’s an individual choice for the kid to do that. Again, it comes back to others respecting that choice.

Andrew Stephenson, A kindergarten teacher had a gender reveal party the second last day of school (June 2017), and, read two books to students Red: A Crayon’s Story and Being Jazz (curriculum outlines gr. 3 -5 ); parents were not consulted or given the opportunity to opt their children out. Unaware of these events; parents were then tasked with handling questions from their children when they came home. When parents tried to get information from the Administrator as to what happened in the classroom that day, initially, they were told to ask their children. Pressure from parents to get to the bottom of this, finally forced this school to reveal what took place in the classroom. This was highly inappropriate, and, wrong of this school to do this.

Why you only consulted Breitbart is beyond me.

The story continues….

The little girl who was “investigated” spent all of last year calling her classmate by a male name, and, when school resumed after summer break, she greeted her classmate on the playground and all effing pandemonium ensued….Her crime, she didn’t remember what she learned two days before school let out and called this student by given name at birth! Incidentally, she is not in the same class as this student this year.

My assessment of your contrarian nature hasn’t changed!

It’s a charter school, nobody’s forcing them to go there.

Remove the hyperbole over transgenders, and you have a relatively routine administrative issue. Breitbart, where this story is from, is just trying to incite “culture wars” and the Rebel following on their heels.
commented 2017-08-29 13:02:06 -0400
Ever the contrarian Andrew!
Look into this story a bit further, you are vehemently backing Rocklin Academy in California. Shame you are!
commented 2017-08-29 12:49:12 -0400
What’s important was whether it was malevolent, taunting, or some other negative intent – which is bullying. If it’s happening, it needs to be stopped, and to determine if it is, needs investigation.

Whether you agree or not with the circumstances is irrelevant, bullying over someone else’s choices is never OK.
commented 2017-08-29 12:40:20 -0400
Hmm, Andrew, it sounds like you were a nasty child yourself!

One hour investigation to figure out whether a first grader “bullied” another child by calling that child by their first name of last year…..reality – pseudo-science and social engineering harms children. School Administrators who push this on children are committing child abuse.

Calling children assholes and nasty little pieces of work, as you did; is bigoted & melodramatic!
commented 2017-08-29 12:10:47 -0400
Purely a semantic objection? Young children can be nasty little pieces of work if you let them get away with it.
commented 2017-08-29 11:11:48 -0400
I wouldn’t call first graders assholes!
commented 2017-08-29 10:27:55 -0400
They determined it wasn’t bullying, but they had to make sure.

“reality” is that some kids are assholes and will pick on others. Sometimes it’s hard to distinguish.

The rights to basic respect are not “special” nor limited to any basic demographic.
commented 2017-08-29 01:54:38 -0400
Andrew Stephenson they do not give a damn about bullying , try some reality. And how was this bullying? Oh yeah , special people have special rights.
commented 2017-08-28 22:08:56 -0400
An hour long investigation…really! This school is being run by idiots.
commented 2017-08-28 21:36:31 -0400
“We don’t need no education
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone
All in all it’s just another brick in the wall
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall…”

Yes, sane people are moving out of California. Unfortunately only the people with money can afford to pack up and leave. Stefan Molyneux claims that illegals replace the smart people that see whats coming and move. Once the working people leave, that Town or City end up like Detroit. He also claims that there are places in S. California that are as poor as Mexican Towns, so there is no reason for Mexicans to jump the border, thus less illegal immigrants so far this year.
If California was starving due to the Liberal Policies, I wouldn’t send them a dime in aid.

The public education system is in the final steps of utter collapse. Time to pull every child out and home-school or some other option. The pedophiles, child-sex groomers and other assorted band of perverts have obviously infiltrated the education system. Ontario schooling is now a completely toxic environment because of the progressive push to main-stream pedophilia in education.

Right now, what I think is most likely going to get me put on a watch list, if not in jail.

And all it involves is a good swift kick in the…

Keep posting that one
Make the trolls cringe !!!!!

They’re pretty aggressive about stopping bullying these days.

They looked into it, and found no wrongdoing, it was a simple mistake.

That’s all it is, despite the froth surrounding the issue.

Again, pure evil. I repeat what said in an earlier post about Muslim foster parent to Christian children: This is pure evil…. at the bureaucratic institutional level. There are many who will have stand before God for this crime against children. Matthew 18:6 “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”

Because it’s 2017.

Its already in Ontario, starting in Alberta, and soon in BC. Quebec, who knows. Then all the rest of the country will fall in line.

Hey, they think Antifa is actually anti-fascist and that free speech equals hate speech, so calling George George instead of Georgina makes sense to them.

Such a sad world we live in. PC will be the death of Western civilisation.

I’d really like to see a trans case play out in a court room because I need to se what scientific evidence can be offered to show that a human who simply wishes to be a sex opposite of what they are born can scientifically be regarded as such.

Happened in California… the place is a Liberal cesspool. Most sane people have gotten the heck out of there already.
