WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona refused to answer the question of whether or not parents should be informed by schools if their children are secretly undergoing “gender transitioning.”
Education Sec. Miguel Cardona refused to say whether schools should keep a child’s involvement in gender transition a secret from parents.
This is just another reason we need to make families the most important interest group in America.

“Do you believe that school districts should keep a child’s involvement in gender transitioning a secret from parents?” Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) asked Cardona during congressional testimony on May 26.
“Parents and schools must work together to support students,” Cardona said, avoiding the question and adding that he “would love to answer questions on the budget, which is why I’m here.”
“These are policies that your administration stands behind,” Banks pressed. “You’re asking me to fund your budget, and these are policies that you stand for. It’s completely relevant to why you’re here today.”
“Schools should be partnering with parents on communication, and there are times when schools are working and supporting students on issues that are very sensitive, but I do believe that parents should be connected with schools, and, in many cases, working together is what’s going to help the student,” Cardona responded.
“I have spoken to students who shared, whatever situation is at their home, that they felt safe at the school, and we have to be careful not to turn this into something that it’s not,” he continued, still avoiding a direct answer.
“Our schools are safe places for our students, and our teachers are often the front-liners when it comes to supporting our students when they have issues in their lives,” Cardona added.
At least 135 U.S. teachers and teachers’ aides have already been arrested in 2022 for child-related sex crimes, ranging from child porn possession to rape, and these are only the cases reported by the media.
And, while the vast majority of teachers are upstanding citizens, we also know some are indoctrinating our children with the LGBT ideology and practices to "make an ally of them" at a wholly inappropriate age.
This is not acceptable, and must be stopped now.
SIGN: Congress must ban federal funding for schools promoting sex or LGBT ideologies among children.
With Governor Ron DeSantis already taking action in Florida, banning instruction on sexuality and gender identity by teachers among third graders and younger, it's now time to see a federal push to effectively end such meddling in the minds of our children.
Parents have a responsibility to defend their children from those who overstep boundaries, whether that's in the form of LGBT propaganda, pornography, or other forms of sexualization in schools.
Too often the media downplays what's at stake: nothing less than the innocence of our children, and sometimes even their very lives, as this grieving Mom explained in March.
SIGN and SHARE: Congress must ban federal funding for schools who attempt to sexualize children.
76% of the arrests of teachers and aides for child-related sex-crimes this year involved assaults on students.
Jonathan van Maren reports that while one California teacher was charged with aggravated assault of a child, another was charged with 29 counts of child molestation.
A North Carolina science teacher was charged with 27 counts of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and 28 counts of “indecent liberties with a student.”
Parents need to construct every possible barrier to more children being abused, and one important way is to stop groomers and potential groomers from discussing sex with children in the classroom.
It is a violation of trust to introduce someone else's precious child to the minefield of sexuality, and it breaks down inhibitions that are meant to protect our most vulnerable young people.
SIGN TODAY: Pull federal funding from any school that sexualizes children
We already know that drag queens, some of whom admit to grooming, have no place in the classroom, and that teaching children about gender identities and sexual preferences is wholly inappropriate, but it's beyond time we took action.
Thank you for signing the petition today.

Schools encouraging young children into “gender transitions” can cause significant harm to these children’s futures. Evidence shows that 85 percent to 95 percent of children who believe that they are of the opposite sex grow out of their gender confusion if they are allowed to go through puberty normally.
However, if gender-confused children are given puberty blockers, only around five percent to 10 percent decide to embrace their actual gender.
Withholding life-changing information from parents can have dire consequences for children, as seen in a recent Florida case. Parents of a middle-school girl are suing after the school district neglected to tell them about their daughter’s gender dysphoria. After the young girl attempted suicide for the second time, the school finally chose to inform her parents.
