WASHINGTON, D.C., November 22, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A draft report from President Obama’s National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform has concluded that the entire office under controversial “safe schools czar” Kevin Jennings, a radical leader in the homosexualist movement, is a financial waste and should be dissolved.
The report, which will be voted on by December 1 to receive final approval, was picked up by CNSNews.com earlier this month.
The authors of the report hint that the office is an overblown and ineffective response to dangerous environments on school grounds.
“While school safety should be protected, violence and drug abuse are problems that occur far less on school grounds than elsewhere,” states the report, noting that “children are more likely to be victims of violence away from school, and while drug use is more common than violence, it still occurs infrequently on school property.
“Further, the results hoped for in creation of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools have not been demonstrated.”
The commission notes that the budget for the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools has more than doubled since 2008, and that eliminating the operation would save about $1.8 billion in 2015.
Jennings, the former executive director of the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN), was targeted by fifty-three members of the House last year. In a letter to President Obama they urged the president to fire Jennings based on his past career promoting homosexuality among youth.
At a GLSEN conference in 2000, Jennings oversaw the inclusion of a workshop that promoted deviant and dangerous sexual acts to Massachusetts teenagers.
Jennings has also admitted to ignoring evidence of homosexual statutory rape that a 15-year-old confided to him when he was a teacher. When told of the homosexual encounter between the boy and a much older man, Jennings, describing himself as “a closeted gay teacher,” told the boy, “You know, I hope you knew how to wear a condom.” The age of consent in Massachusetts is 16 years old. The czar later said that, “Twenty-one years later I can see how I should have handled the situation differently.”
