I hope that our schools will educate the young about that as well as each and every of 37 genders, our kids must know all intricacies of gender identity and sexual orientation, a position of sex/gender identity guidance officer must become a staple in every school system, including Catholic schools.

My daughter goes to a all girls parochial school. Trust me, they don’t teach anything about the .01% of those suffering from what I term mental illness and degeneracy.

Why? Have their students already exceeded every educational standard currently in place and they've run out of things to teach?

Do you have desires to further normalize the abnormal and attempt to make acceptable on a large scale that which has been unacceptable to most? Are not discussions of such matters best left to the family from which values are learned? Do you think that a subset of society pursuing a liberal or “progressive” agenda should own the hearts and minds of our children and take precedence in shaping their attitudes when such shaping runs contrary to that of the family from which these children come?

Leave the “issues” where they belong and dealt with by those whom they affect.

I wonder sometimes how much time is spent on all these well-meaning ideas aggregated together. At some point, you're just teaching someone's wishlist throughout the school day.

It's funny to think of a well-rounded LGBTQ historical curriculum. You could spend a bit of time on Ernst Röhm during WWII week.

School is not, or should not be, intended to teach children the "benefits of diversity," transgender stuff, and whatever other messages the liberals want to send. School is to acquire the basic foundational knowledge - reading, math, history, geography, science, and perhaps a second language.

But that's me.

P.S. I'd also like to see a basic course in personal finance.

They didn't at our kids' coed Catholic schools, either.

Still, every parent needs to vet these schools, too. We did.

In other words, academics. Sadly, that's getting short shrift in public schools, today.
