The Jury Talks Back


Kindergarten Teacher Introduces Class Of 5-Year Olds To Transgenderism Without Parents’ Prior Knowledge

Simply put: the district didn’t have to notify parents because district policy says the topic of gender identity is different from sex education and therefore doesn’t require prior parental notice. In other words, another school gives parents yet another reason to home school:

The Rocklin Academy school board is facing tough questions from parents concerned over a controversial incident involving transgender discussions inside a kindergarten class.

At Monday night’s board meeting, the teacher at the center of the controversy spoke out. With emotions high, she addressed a packed house.

“I’m so proud of my students, it was never my intent to harm any students but to help them through a difficult situation,” she said.

The teacher defended her actions to read two children’s books about transgenderism including one titled “I am Jazz.” She says the books were given to her by a transgender child going through a transition.

“The kindergartners came home very confused, about whether or not you can pick your gender, whether or not they really were a boy or a girl,” said England.

Parents say besides the books, the transgender student at some point during class also changed clothes and was revealed as her true gender.

As one parent at the meeting put it:

“I want her to hear from me as a parent what her gender identity means to her and our family, not from a book that may be controversial,” a parent said.

Go figure, right? No wonder some parents felt “betrayed” and “blindsided”. It gives on hope to realize that there are actually still parents who believe that it is their responsibility to decide the time and place and how to discuss sexual identity with their children, and become angered when other adults usurp that role and make those decisions for them.



  1. This is abuse, abuse of position and authority, and emotional abuse. The district should take action, and although their ridiculous policy means the teacher didn’t do anything against the rules someone needs to take responsibility for this situation and a change needs to be made immediately. Parents need to be free to move their child to another classroom or another campus and they need to have a higher authority at the school speak to the class to undo this.

  2. The next board election will be interesting. I suspect the press will play it as “professional educators” vs “a christian mob”. Or maybe even “white supremacists”. Hard to say what will be happening next week in this era.

  3. Not for nothing, but sexual identity and gender identity are not the same thing. Most kindergartners have a fully intact sense of their gender before they even get there. Whereas sexuality develops over time later on.

    What this means is, you will run into stuff like this in kindergarten classes. Many trans kids get clear about their gender even earlier, as do basically all kids.
