‘Parents nationwide have been awakened to the radical agenda of many government-run schools and are demanding that students be educated, not indoctrinated’
February 14, 2022
WASHINGTON D.C. — A school in Connecticut is under fire for an inappropriate health class assignment for eighth graders. The students were given a handout stating that pizza can be used as a “metaphor for sex.” The assignment instructed students to list their favorite and least favorite pizza toppings “in relation to sex.”
“Here are some examples: Likes: Cheese = Kissing,” the handout states. “Dislikes: Olives = Giving Oral.”
When the local parents began to complain about the assignment, Enfield Public Schools Superintendent Christopher Drezek said during a school board meeting on Tuesday that the assignment was sent “inadvertently” to eighth-graders, claiming it was a “mistake.”
Ryan Bomberger, chief creative officer and co-founder of The Radiance Foundation (Radiance, www.radiance.life), responded to this blatant excuse and called for schools to stop indoctrinating children without parental knowledge or consent.
Bomberger stated, “As parents, we’re constantly told by the teachers’ unions, school boards and school administrators that they are the professionals. Yet anytime they’re caught pushing unrestricted sexuality on America’s children, they either deny it, hide behind co-opted rainbows, or claim ‘it was a mistake.’ No. They got caught, and they have zero justification for the pornification of our children. Parents nationwide have been awakened to the radical agenda of many government-run schools and are demanding that students be educated, not indoctrinated. As a Loudoun County parent engaged in this same battle, I support SB656 here in Virginia which requires schools to inform and involve parents in the review/rejection of sexually explicit material in elementary and secondary schools.”
