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.”

Once again, or rather, STILL, BPR’s Tommy’s Garage hijacks comments as they are being typed, and they cause the sentences to have no spaces between words. You’d think that what likes to present itself as a professional entity would make the effort to at least operate as promised. Please fix these glitches.

Sexually oriented clubs of any persuasion have no place in any public school and certainly should never be endorsed by any school, educational organization, school board, and especially not by teachers. Period!

Schools and their Dem-Lib teachers and boards are out of control. They believe that it is their right to indoctrinate, abuse, and groom school children secretly in their criminal agendas. Charges, indictments, and prosecutions for those found to be orchestrating and carrying out these hideous acts should be forthcoming!

Whether middle school students are too young depends on what grade middle school starts. Fifth grade is at least a year too young. Some students will realize by 6th grade that they are gay, while some will still be trying to hide it.

High school students are old enough to attend/belong to Gay-Straight Alliance clubs (though apparently the name has changed). An interesting movie on the subject is “Geography Club.”

I understand one reason why some students prefer that their parents not know. Some decades ago I knew two guys whose parents put them in the psych wards of the county hospital, though I don’t know where psych wards are located these days. As info, putting their sons in the psych ward did not work, if “curing” them was the goal.

Just a thought: Everything that is a sin does not need to be a crime.

Whether middle school students are too young depends upon whether their parents deem them to be too young. This is not difficult. Sex ed should have never been allowed in the schools in the first place, outside of a biology class. The human race continued along just fine for many millennia prior to that. Parents abdicated their responsibility to the gov’t, and here we are.

The “psych wards” of decades ago are gone due to deinstitutionalization. Attitudes of decades ago are not the attitudes of today.

The issue here is that schools need to work with parents, not against them. They need to respect parent values, however much they may disagree. I’m a retired principal of a K-8 school and have dealt with issues like this. Our counselor facilitated discussions between children and their parents on difficult topics. We did not do an end-run around parents. These teachers were out-and-out lying to That is incredibly arrogant and disrespectful.

Your comment implies you think teachers have a greater right to make decisions about students than parents do in these sensitive areas. I strongly disagree.

I’m sorry but this is a mental issue not a sexual one. A lot of these teachers are mental themselves! What happened to education, math, reading, history, art, some kind of training class ( mental shop, wood shop, auto computer and such) physical education you know school. They keep saying all this gender crap is private and personal so keep it out of school. All the teachers know and all the kids the only ones that it’s kept from is the parents ! Teachers are paid by us making us their bosses time to remind them of this ! ENROLL them late next year watch them freak they only get paid by attendance no kids no pay.

You probably meant “metal” shop.
Students have the right to extra-curricular clubs, such as oh, Bible Study Club. And others.

Yes, schools can have Bible Study Clubs, but the faculty advisers are prohibited by law from participating in the discussions. They are there in a supervisory role only. Also, parent permission was required in my school, as it was for student participation in all extra-curricular activities.

The problem here is that teachers were deliberately lying to the parents. They are government employees. Therefore, their actions are giving the government a greater role in raising the students to adulthood than the parents have. It flies in the face of professional ethics.

…”is the touchpoint between political activism and activism in K-12″ There it is folks- Kindergarten on up. Keep this baloney away from our children, schools need to teach what is needed to make them model citizens and educated enough to run a cash register or type a letter.

There are at least 3 alternatives to our Orwellian public schools: private schools, parochial schools, and, possibly the best choice, home schooling.
