No Left Turn in Education Reveals Gwinnett County Providing Gender Identity Lessons via Student Laptops
Gender content available only on school devices, not home computers
GWINNETT COUNTY, GEORGIA — The Gwinnett County School District has made inappropriate gender lessons available to young children on a web page that appears on school-provided Chromebooks but not on home computers.
No Left Turn in Education Gwinnett County chapter president Holly Terei went to her daughter’s school and used her school-provided Chromebook to access the eClass portal, a tool used daily by students and teachers. On the front page, a link to “SEL Student Resources” takes the user to page full of ideologically-driven social-emotional learning content.
One ebooks on the fourth grade page claims that gender is a social construct “not based on anything biological or medical.” It dismisses the differences between men and women as figments of societal imagination.
On a non-school laptop, the same “SEL Student Resources” link takes the user to a generic page requiring a login. The gender content made readily available to students at school does not show up if a parent were to look over their shoulder at home.
Terei said, “Gwinnett County Schools are pushing gender lessons on kids and hiding it from their parents. This is a brazen attempt to supplant the role of parents in their children’s lives. Nothing in the content is educational. It does not serve students; it serves the political goals of bureaucrats.”
