IMPORTANT: Regulation 225 invites teaching material like the "genderbread person" or the "gender unicorn" to be used in the classroom, regardless of age. According to Delaware law and this regulation, parents don't have to know a thing about it.
The popular book George
was recently introduced to elementary students in Kansas. It's a story of a 10-year-old boy who is hiding his true identity from his family and friends but unveils his true self to the community in a school production of Charlotte's Web.
In addition to its promotion of sexual politics, the book undermines parental authority by casting George's mother as a non-ally while the school principal (whose office is decorated with LGBTQ affirming posters) saves the day. This message of parents as the "non-ally" is the justification that Regulation 225 uses to disregard and bypass parents. Please pay special attention to how this is framed, and watch for our emails about it. Parents must push back now on this regulation.
