Staff emails reportedly show how far middle school willing to go to deceive parents, keep them in the dark

PA school tries to hide student’s gender transition from parents, LGBTQ+ content promoted to middle schoolers

A number of staff members’ emails at Charles F Patton Middle School in Pennsylvania allegedly show that they were attempting to hide the use of a student’s preferred pronouns from the child’s parents as well as promoting the creation of an LGBTQ-related club.

Fox News got a hold of the disturbing emails that reveal a conversation between a school counselor at the school and teachers discussing a student who “prefers the pronouns they/them.”

“’She’ is fine too, but [the student] likes ‘they/them’ the best,” the email asserted.

“If you are emailing home, it may be best to use she/her when referring to [the student.]” the counselor advised teachers.

The email had an attachment titled, “A Guide to Supporting Trans and Gender Diverse Students” which is provided by the American Psychological Association.

A separate email disclosed another discussion between a counselor and two teachers concerning an LGBTQ+ club at the local high school referred to as the “Gender Sexuality Alliance” (GSA).

On the Unionville High School website, the club is described as, “A student-run club which provides a safe place for students to meet, support each other, talk about issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity and expression, and work to end homophobia and transphobia.”

These types of clubs are springing up all across the nation at high schools and are promoted by the ACLU and the federal government: “Genders and Sexualities Alliances (formerly known as Gay-Straight Alliances), or GSAs, are student-led and student-organized school clubs that aim to create a safe, welcoming, and accepting school environment for all youth, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. GSAs provide a supportive environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and gender non-conforming (LGBTQ) students, as well as those who are perceived by others to be LGBTQ, are questioning their identity, have LGBTQ friends or family members, or just care about LGBTQ issues.”

According to the emails going back and forth, the counselor and a teacher discussed starting a similar club at the middle school. Alternatively, they suggested middle school students could be allowed to attend the high school GSA.

Following a student coming out as “pansexual” during an online assignment, the counselor actively encouraged the teacher to “Ask [the student] if they would be interested in starting some type of club or group to focus on LGBTQ+ topics/issues.”

Middle schoolers are NOT too young to know their sexual orientations and gender identities,” one teacher asserted in an email. “LGBTQ-related content is age appropriate for them.”

“No Left Turn in Education,” which is an organization that says they “believe that K-12 education should be free from indoctrination and politicization,” blasted the school’s secretive actions concerning gender issues.

“It is unconscionable for any teacher to go behind a parent’s back to meddle in a child’s mental, physical, and emotional health,” NLTE President Dr. Elana Fishbein told Fox News Digital in an interview. “While concerned parents get called domestic terrorists, it’s the radical ideologues who actually threaten, harass, and intimidate parents who object to their woke agenda. No Left Turn in Education is standing up for these families and is holding officials accountable for enforcing the laws that are supposed to protect our kids.”
