The state board meeting is 5/4 and will vote on the Health standards. Write them today! Sample letter below.
I am writing to implore you to please push back required implementation date of the New Jersey learning standard (2020 NJLS) from September 2022 and I further request that it be amended as well as provide another six months for public review.
The sexualization of such young children is a burden too heavy for them to carry. It is inappropriate and will cause certain harm to every student. Once children have been stripped of their innocence there is no giving it back. My fifth grader believes in Santa Claus and plays with dolls. Under this new standard she would be expected to learn about masturbation. A year from now, in middle school, she will expected to learn about vaginal anal and oral sex, abortion and other grossly inappropriate topics prior to High School. This standard simply does not apply to the Maturity level of most children.
With nearly two years of learning loss in New Jersey public schools, disproportionately implemented across the state where some schools were online and some in person and some half-day and somewhere full day, I feel that there are much more important things to be addressing in education at this point than gender identity and gross sexualization.
This new law of sexualization is the straw that broke the camels back. It is the main reason that many parents, like myself, are at the point where the only option is to remove our children from the public school system.
Please reconsider opening this up for public comment and pushing it back so that many voices can be heard.
I can assure you that I am not alone in my opinions on this matter.
YOUR NAME HERE
done with some edits. This whole movment is just an industry lobby group masquerading as a civil rights movement. This industry wants to sell therapy, drugs and surgery to vulnerable young people. Like cigarette and alcohol companies marketing to young people. AS we know cig and hard liquor ads were banned from TV. So any and all talk about sex or sexuality should be banned from the public taxpayor funded educational system by default > The state has NO role to play in talking about gender or sex or sexuality NONE. I would assert that ALL school should be privatized as well but thats too much common sense for most people to accept.
Done. With edits, and not quite as polite. I'm sorry. I think the Amaze.org ANIMATED PORN is absolutely disgusting. Let's just normalize everything, and make nothing a big deal, ever. Everything is always No Big Deal.
I saw on Netflix (which I'm getting rid of) a show on "Pleasure"...I watched a few minutes. A woman started saying "children should know about PLEASURE from the time they have language."
Now I get it.
This leftist garbage AGENDA (because it is an AGENDA, nothing to do with sane adult thought about what is appropriate for children) stems from that mentality - let's get kids into their sexuality ASAP, so we can "help" them. NOT appropriate for school!
If parents want to teach their kids, send them to Porn Club, Pleasure Club, Sex Education Club, that is their choice. But this is not fodder for school.
Done and shared on two parent FB pages for what that is worth. Just more exposure.
I sent my email in with a few edits. One of which is saying No to K-12. Letting them know I am not asking their permission, was not to polite which is where we all need to stop being, that my taxes pay for them and that this whole situation is not for anyone, much less children. That this has already started in some districts by teachers and that will not fly.
AS a side not to everyone on here, we need to stop this tenure for teachers. If your a pedo and are already tenured, they get to stay in schools. How nice, that its all made to order for them. Sickos!!!
Will do. There is a symposium on this subject, on May 14th, where parents will learn how to attend BOE meetings and ask the right questions, run for school board to get elected, alternate schooling options, and parental rights. Speakers, panelists, and other grass roots organizations will be there. It's free of course, but registration needed because capacity is limited: at concernedcitizensnj.org.
the link to send an email doesn't work - this should be posted to them or are you working cooperatively with the state draconian government.
I'll be writing mine today especially since my school district already rolled out the new standards this past September 2021. We are actively teaching right now in Rutherford and in light of what is going on, it needs to pause until the state is on the same page.
I wrote my own letter as well. This is unreal, immoral, and must end.
Governor Murphy I appreciate the hard work that you do and I am sure that it was good intent that you presented this but I am telling you from a therapist point of view that this is not healthy for our kids mental health so I pray that enough parents speak up and that democracy wins and this is not passed it
Done! Thank you!!
Shared the email; nicely done. But isn't the meeting on May 4?
Done! Thank you for sharing this.
