A Mother’s Cry for Justice: The Disturbing Revelation of Hidden Surveys
Once again, the pristine mountains of Colorado have turned into a backdrop for yet another stunning overreach by the education system, a system that now seems to prioritize secrecy and agenda over the hallowed bond between a parent and a child.
Parents in the Jefferson County district are raising alarms, and rightfully so, accusing teachers of outright breaking both state and federal laws in the name of ‘progressivism.’
Teachers are clandestinely surveying students about their preferred pronouns without the knowledge or consent of the parents.
Denice Crawford, a concerned mother of three, described her feelings as ‘betrayed’, having found out that these teachers were given instructions to perform these surveys with paper and pencil to avoid leaving a digital footprint, an unmistakable tactic to sidestep legal ramifications.
‘Deceived, lied to, taken advantage of,” Crawford says.
It’s not just a rumor; it’s documented in an email procured by CBS News from the county’s dominating teacher’s union, the Jefferson County Education Association (JCEA), which supposedly stands for the betterment of education.
Instead, they are orchestrating this devious act, coaching teachers to potentially break the law by deploying subterfuge.
What kind of example does this set for the students?
And how can parents trust these educators with their children’s formation when there’s a blatant disregard for legal boundaries?
The audacity doesn’t just end there.
JCEA President Brooke Williams, who spearheaded this preposterous initiative, seems to be fully aware that these actions are on the verge of breaking the laws, yet presses forward with a reckless abandon that undermines the very principles of education.
This sort of leadership can only encourage a generation of law-skirting individuals, a crisis brewing at the very core of our education system.
And if this wasn’t already a slap in the face of every law-abiding citizen, the letter casually remarks that transgender and gender nonconforming students have the right to express and share their gender identity.
No one is disputing that.
But this does not give the schools carte blanche to clandestinely gather data on students, in violation of FERPA, a federal law passed in 1974 to protect the privacy of students’ education records.
It’s an absolute disgrace that the very guardians of education, law, and order are the ones orchestrating this charade.
Meanwhile, other parents stand united with Crawford, pointing out the glaring truth – that this letter provides an open pathway to sidestep the law, an action that could potentially lead to far-reaching consequences.
A local school board member, Susan Miller, echoed these sentiments and demanded an immediate retraction, imploring the district to adhere to the laws that are unequivocally in place for a valid reason.
Yet here we stand, with no retraction in sight, as this dire issue snowballs nationwide. Lawsuits are piling up in six states where parents rightly argue their 14th Amendment rights are being trampled upon by a system more concerned with pushing an agenda than respecting the constitutional rights of parents.
