New video raises more questions about parental rights

Moms for Liberty-Duval County, an organization that monitors the government schools in the Jacksonville area, is making people aware of sexuality clubs in those schools.

In a shocking video posted on YouTube, the organization says the existence of the clubs is part of a disturbing pattern of secrecy in the school administration.

Rebecca Nathanson of Moms for Liberty told Eye on Jacksonville there are 14 “gender and sexuality alliance” clubs in the middle schools and additional ones in the high schools. The middle school clubs are the most alarming to parents because children as young as 11 are in middle schools.

Nathanson said School Board policy 5.09 requires that all clubs must be noticed on the school’s Web site. “There are 14 of these clubs in middle schools and only two appear on their Web sites.”

What worries the organization’s members is the district’s position that parents should not be notified if their children declare an intention to “transition.”

That was stated policy in a school system guidebook that now has been rewritten. Some parents fear the policy has changed, but only deleted in print.

“The school district now says it will handle such matters case by case,” Nathanson said.

Another nagging concern is that the board still has taken no action on a resolution proposed by Board Member Charlotte Joyce, stating the board’s support for a new state law on parental rights.

It was tabled months ago.

“I think they just want it to die,” Nathanson said. “They are never going to bring it back.”

When a political body in the state of Florida refuses to support a law duly enacted by the Florida Legislature and governor, it is sufficient reason for alarmed and parents should be concerned.

It is the job of schools to educate, not indoctrinate. Not enough of the former is being done and it is not from lack of money.

The questions parents are asking is, why are there sexuality clubs in schools? Are students forming them voluntarily or are students being groomed? Why is more notice not being given?
