URGENT: Obama Threatens to Cut Kids’ Meals If School Doesn’t Bow Down to His Agenda
On Thursday, the Fairfax County School Board in Virginia voted overwhelmingly to expand its non-discrimination policy to accommodate transgender teachers and students despite the outcry of dozens of concerned parents.
The amended school policy applies to preschool classrooms and would allow transgender teachers to remain in classrooms and conduct themselves accordingly.
Naturally, this has parents concerned and rightfully outraged as the privacy of their children becomes a key issue if transgender teachers and students have access to certain areas like restrooms and locker rooms.
If you’re wondering why a school board would directly oppose the parents of the children who attend their schools, the answer lies in the federal government and its desire for control.
School Board Chairwoman Tamara Derenak Koufax released a statement after the board meeting and said the government left the board no choice.
“The U.S. Department of Education has told school districts that transgender students are protected from discrimination under Title IX and has recently required some school districts including Alexandria, Va., to amend their policies to expressly include gender identity,” said Koufax.
Elizabeth Schultz, the only board member to vote against the amended change, said Koufax was right about the federal encroachment.
“They’ve threatened that if we do not they will pull our federal education funds, free and reduced meal money for impoverished students,” said Schultz in an interview with the Washington Examiner.
“What happened in Fairfax is not just about Fairfax. It is now a national issue,” said Andrea Lafferty, Traditional Values Coalition President.
“President Obama and his Justice Department and his Department of Education are going to start telling school districts, ‘If you do not add gender identity, we are going to take away all your federal funding,” Lafferty added (H/T WND).
This is the worst form of strong-arm tactic but, sadly, we’ve come to expect such behavior from the Obama administration.
