Again within the day, steerage counselors have been these useful (however not unduly intrusive) highschool officers who allotted vocational and profession recommendation, reminded you of school utility deadlines, and made certain your transcripts and letters of suggestions acquired the place they wanted to go. However like a lot else within the Nineteen Sixties and Seventies, conventional roles fell to radical transformation. A cadre of recent and radicalized faculty counselors appointed themselves “complete” suppliers of “social and emotional studying,” psychological well being teaching, and sexual schooling proselytizing.
And now, all hell has damaged free.
Trendy faculty counselors are zealous social justice meddlers bent on changing mother and father and exposing your youngsters early and infrequently to anti-white, anti-American, anti-nuclear household propaganda. Audio system on the American Faculty Counselor Affiliation (ASCA) brag brazenly about being “grasp manipulators” of kids and prepare their members on methods to “turn into an LGBTQ-inclusive faculty.”
Intrepid whistleblowers at Braveness Is a Behavior, an action-oriented group based by Indiana dad or mum activist Alvin Lui, videotaped a number of seminars held at ASCA’s 2022 nationwide convention in July. They collected convention supplies outlining “studying targets” resembling with the ability to “outline transgender, gender expansive and different necessary phrases associated to sexuality and gender id” and “methods to establish authorized sources” for transgender and gender expansive college students.
Faculty counselors on the convention have been additionally advised to gather information and snitch on any scholar “who isn’t transgender and complains about being uncomfortable” with transgender and gender expansive college students — complaints which ASCA deems a type of “bullying and harassment.”
Braveness Is a Behavior additionally caught ASCA’s previous president and present Ethics Committee Chairman, Carolyn Stone, laughing as she advised attendees a couple of faculty counselor who took a toddler to a clinic to acquire contraceptives in defiance of her mom’s needs. That counselor requested Stone for recommendation on what to do subsequent. Stone gave a gaggle pop quiz: Do you inform the counselor to inform the kid “to inform her dad or mum,” or “two, do you inform the lady’s mom your self and confess,” or “three,” withhold all data and “maintain your breath and pray?” The convention broke out in cackling laughter as all of them voted for the third, parental autonomy-undermining selection, at which level Stone exulted that “you might be all able to be a part of the ethics committee.”
No marvel ASCA’s convention was titled “No Limits.”
As I’ve reported the previous three many years, the overriding agenda of the schooling elite and their ancillary left-wing allies within the nonprofit, company and authorities swamps is to drive a wedge between mother and father and kids. That’s what the institution of school-based well being clinics was all about — as was “outcome-based schooling,” Frequent Core math, the infiltration of Huge Tech, essential race concept and everything of “social-emotional studying” conditioning for which faculty counselors act as “grasp manipulators.” Their. Personal. Phrases.
As Braveness Is a Behavior’s founder Alvin Lui advised me this week, “One of many largest hurdles mother and father face is that faculties rent third events that delivers surveys, SEL classes, sources, and so on., and it’s technically not a part of the ‘curriculum.’ So when mother and father say ‘let me see the curriculum,’ it doesn’t at all times look so unhealthy however they aren’t conscious of all these third events. For the mother and father who’re conscious, they get stonewalled as a result of they are saying that it’s a 3rd occasion so the fabric is proprietary.” In the identical vein, faculty counselors usually are not part of any Okay-12 curriculum or coverage, “however they prepare faculty counselors in all these extremely woke strategies and concepts, and the college counselors cross that to youngsters. Until mother and father know who ASCA is and actually dig, they don’t know the place to even look.”
Vampires and cockroaches hate daylight, so that you received’t be shocked to be taught that ASCA has taken vicious measures to deplatform Braveness Is a Behavior for its extremely efficient, fair-use critiques of the “No Limits” convention. The woke faculty counselor mafia pressured Lui’s web site internet hosting supplier (Carrd), net server supplier (Amazon Internet Providers), and Google Drive to censor hyperlinks and paperwork associated to their Behind Closed Doorways marketing campaign. [PARENTS: DOWNLOAD THE CENSORED “BEHIND THE SCENES” PDF HERE.] I’d name such Maoist ways surprising, however that’s the best way end-stage America rolls nowadays.
Defending mother and father and easily demanding transparency has now earned Braveness Is a Behavior and like-minded teams like Mothers for Liberty the label “far-right” by, um, far-left Mom Jones journal. (Standard, usual: That’s what the Southern Poverty Regulation Middle known as us almost a decade in the past after we resisted Frequent Core). However as at all times, catching flak equals over the goal. Lui and his crew are doing extremely very important work arming mother and father with details about what’s occurring “Behind Closed Doorways” within the faculties. Extra importantly, they supply concrete motion plans on methods to battle again in opposition to groomers and brainwashers turning youngsters in opposition to their households.
Mark Ousley, an Oklahoma schooling activist, advised me Braveness Is a Behavior provides “tangible and accessible instruments to assist mother and father and advocates like me push again in opposition to what’s an enormous and complex bureaucratic monster.”
That features the conniving faculty counselors indoctrinating college students within the transgender cult, contraception worship and white guilt. Much more than a behavior, braveness is a muscle. Dad and mom, flex it now or give up your youngsters.
