A four-year-old student was kicked out of a Colorado preschool after her parents questioned the administration’s controversial curriculum that openly promotes homosexual behavior and transgenderism in the classroom.
Wanting the opportunity to opt her daughter out of the classroom discussions focusing on sexuality, same-sex relations and gender issues at Montview Community Preschool and Kindergarten (MCPK) in Denver, Colorado, R.B. Sinclair made it clear that she believes her four-year-old is too young to participate in sex education at school.
"I think at this age, they don't know what bias is," Sinclair told the Denver Post. "They could have kids from Mars and they would still play with each other.”
She maintained that it is her parental right to judge when, where and how her daughter is exposed to sensitive issues.
“It's not that she isn't exposed to diversity, because it is the world we live in, but how are they having these conversations?" Sinclair asked.
The concerned mother shared that her fear about the sexual indoctrination program arose when her daughter returned home from school and expressed that she was worried that her father might not like girls any more.
“She met with the principal over concerns about the books being read in class, including ones that told the stories about same-sex couples and worms unsure about their gender,” CBN News reports. “School officials from the privately run parent cooperative explained the stories were part of the school's anti-bias curriculum, and because the discussions are sprinkled through the day's activities, they told her that opting out was not possible.”
Tolerance or intolerance?
Sinclair found it ironic that as a result of the so-called tolerance training to which students must be subjected throughout the school day, her child was discriminated against because she came from a home with divergent views on the issue of sexuality.
Being singled out, the preschooler was kicked out of the school two days after Sinclair met with MCPK’s principal.
“[The situation is] not a good fit,” read the school’s letter that was handed to the four-year-old’s mother.
The letter from the school notified Sinclair that it was her daughter’s last day at MCPK, indicating that the school could not accommodate her request as a concerned parent to protect her child.
In an attempt to address the concern brought to the school’s attention, MCPK officials released another letter shortly after the girl’s expulsion — to inform those on campus about the sex and gender curriculum in question.
MCPK Director Linda Mars drafted the letter to try and acknowledge the concerns that were expressed over the choice of books being read by students and teachers in the classroom. In an attempt to avoid further problems, Mars insisted that the preschoolers and kindergartners must learn about diversity and tolerance during classroom instructional time, arguing that they must become familiar with all the different languages, skin colors, cultures and family structures in American society.
Despite the school’s assertion that its brand of diversity must be taught in the classroom in order for students to truly understand the dynamics of society, Sinclair maintained that her daughter is immersed in a community that is very diverse — especially since she is being raised in a biracial family, where she is exposed to both Western and Muslim cultures on a daily basis.
The frustrated mother argues that tolerance needs to go both ways.
"Meanwhile, there was no consideration for the bias against my family's culture, faith and concerns," Sinclair concluded.
