Austin School District’s ‘Pride Week’ Curriculum Violates State Law — Here’s The 411

The Austin school board Superintendent remains defiant, but the Texas AG is pushing right back.

The Austin Independent School District (AISD) was proudly posting that they were going to celebrate a “Pride Week” this week.

The week-long celebration of everything LGBTQIA+ (as they abbreviate it) will culminate in a “Party in the Park” on Saturday, March 26.

While the tweets above refer to what’s happening at a high school, the District didn’t exactly advertise that there would be a special “Pride Week” curriculum for all students from as young as Pre-K.

According to Libs of Tik Tok, the schools have instructed young students to keep the “celebration” a secret.

The people pushing this don’t seem to understand how parents could take exception to the introduction of topics of sex and gender to 3- to 7-year olds. That’s why they told small children to keep it a secret from their parents.

Interestingly, keeping secrets from parents is precisely what pedophiles do when grooming children for abuse. This is not to say that the teachers and leaders in the AISD are pedophiles, but that they’re using the same behavior because they know that some parents would be upset. Keeping what is discussed secret from parents also prevents parents from countering the overt indoctrination in fringe gender theory that confuses and frightens very young children.

It also puts children at risk from abuse by someone else if a trusted authority figure like a teacher assures them that discussions on topics like body parts can be kept secret from parents.

This is precisely why the term “groomer” is an appropriate label for teachers that want to introduce these topics early — they’re doing the work of groomers even if it’s unintentional.

After Doss Elementary was exposed online by the intrepid Libs of Tik Tok account, they changed some of the wording of the event so that parents could be told about what was said in the “community circle” — but they were shamed into it.

 

Texas AG Ken Paxton wasn’t too thrilled that Austin Independent School District decided to usurp parental authority by introducing topics of sexual orientation and gender identity to students without parental notification.

Paxton sent a letter to Austin ISD Superintendent Stephanie S. Elizalde informing her that she has violated Texas law because the State’s Education Code states that “before a student may be provided with human sexuality instruction, a school district must obtain the written consent of the student’s parent.”

“The Texas Legislature has made it clear that when it comes to sex education, parents – not school districts – are in charge,” Paxton wrote. “By hosting ‘Pride Week,’ your district has, at best, undertaken a week-long instructional effort in human sexuality without parental consent. Or, worse, your district is cynically pushing a week-long indoctrination of your students that not only fails to obtain parental consent, but subtly cuts parents out of the loop. Either way, you are breaking state law.”

The Superintendent of the Austin Independent School District remains defiant.

Yeah, well, we’ll see how that goes over at the next round of school board elections.

We saw how the new voting block of angry parents worked out well in Virginia. Do you think that the “Don’t Mess With Texas” parents are going to be any less upset about the political and social indoctrination of their children at the expense of their education?

Good luck at the next school board meeting, ASID trustees. You’re probably going to get an earful.

Homeschool your kids if you can, and if you can’t, be loud and make sure your voice is heard at the school board.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
