It seems our public school system clicks one more notch away from an educational institution and towards an indoctrination regime with each passing day. This is given more credence with a recent story out of Long Beach, California.
In 2016, the citizens of Long Beach approved a ballot measure (Measure E) to provide $1.5 billion for school repairs and safety. Measure E was overwhelmingly approved by voters, with 74.86% voting in its favor.
Funds provided by the measure were set to be allocated for the following four areas:
- Building repairs for schools.
- New technology for science and computer labs, libraries, and classrooms.
- Air conditioning for many schools that lack air conditioning systems.
- Safety via improved indoor and outdoor recreational areas.
With these four areas in mind, it may be surprising to learn that Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD) will use funds provided by Measure E for a much more controversial purpose.
LBUSD is planning to build a new aquatic center at Wilson High School this summer, complete with an “all-gender” locker room.
Wilson High School assistant principal Guillermo Jimenez recently sent out an email to the school’s parents, informing them of a virtual community meeting that will be held for parents to learn more about the “inclusive locker room” that will be built.
The email reads as follows:
Parents and guardians are invited to join a virtual community meeting onTuesday [sic], November 30 at 6 p.m. to learn more about the new aquatic center and inclusive locker room coming to Wilson High School fall 2023. Construction will begin next summer.
The Long Beach Unified School District’s inclusive facilities are spaces that serve students with disabilities, students of all gender identities and expressions, and students who desire privacy for any number of reasons. Wilson’s new aquatic center will feature an inclusive, all-gender locker room.
LBUSD’s Facilities staff will share information on the new aquatic center, including details on the locker room’s safety and privacy features. To join the meeting on November 30, please visit the District’s YouTube channel at LBSchools.net/YouTube or click here.
Parents will have an opportunity to ask questions during the meeting. If you’d like to submit questions in advance of the meeting, please email [email protected].
Thank you for your participation and support.
Assistant Principal, Wilson High School
As The Daily Wire reports, Long Beach already allows students “to use the bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with the gender they identify with. As well, students may also participate in sports teams and competitions with the gender they identify [as] regardless of the gender listed on their school records.”
Now, LBUSD will build an “inclusive” locker room so students of both sexes can use the same changing facilities.
An all-gender locker room at a high school populated by teenagers – what could go wrong?
The Daily Citizen has reported numerous times this year on evil, and horrifying occurrences in our public schools. Kindergartners are being taught about gender identity. A ‘gender fluid’ student sexually assaulted a girl in a public-school restroom. Critical race theory is being taught to students. And books with sexually explicit material were made available to children through school libraries.
It’s enough to make your head spin.
This constant stream of worrisome stories can make parents’ stomachs churn, especially those with kids in the public school system.
To help parents navigate their child’s public school, Focus on the Family has created a new, free resource, Back to School for Parents: A busy parent’s guide to what’s happening in your children’s classrooms and practical steps you can take to protect them. The resource can help you stay informed with happenings in your child’s school. It also makes suggestions on how to respectfully advocate on behalf of your child and gives guidance on how to discuss difficult topics with them.
