Florida Public Schools Push Sex Changes on children Without Parents Permission
The Revolutionary Act online commentary reports:
A Florida school superintendent in very conservative coastal Sarasota County is implementing a radically leftist transgender policy without public input or a vote of the School Board, a policy that among other things strips parents of their right to know what their child is doing in school and turns over a fundamental right of parenting to the government.
At the recommendation of the Sarasota County School District's LGBTQI Task Force, School Superintendent Todd Bowden is issuing "guidelines" today to govern how the district's more than 50 public schools handle transgender and gender questioning students - starting as young as kindergarten.
This surreptitious radicalization of local policy comes at the very moment that the Trump administration is considering rolling back the Obama administration's baseless, un-scientific and lawless expansion of Title IX, the federal civil-rights statute that bans sex discrimination in federally funded education programs. Obama also did that very quietly in 2014, on his own, after Congress failed to get it changed to Obama's satisfaction.
These are called "guidelines" presumably because an actual policy would have to go through the School Board and be subject to public hearings and public input. (The tactic is akin to when President Obama created a treaty with Iran over nuclear weapons, but called it an "agreement" to bypass the need for Senate ratification.)
Superintendent Bowden appears to be using the Obama playbook on the issue.
