School Trustees, as the title suggests, are entrusted by parents with the responsibility of managing the education of your children on your behalf. It has always been understood that parents have primacy in the education of their children and that it is a natural, inherent right of the parents which must not be overridden by the state. Today, the state is trying to usurp parental rights and more than ever, school trustees are needed to labour on your behalf.
Our schools continue to push failed sex education policies onto your children. The sex ed curriculum basically pushes condoms onto kids and has the effect of "giving permission" to engage in premarital sex. Many schools have on-site condom machines and give classroom demos on how to put on a condom using objects like a bottle or banana.
This failed condom policy has resulted in an epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases across Canada, increased teen pregnancies and more abortions. Remember - teens are about as reliable at using condoms in the heat of the moment, as they are at making their beds or doing their homework. The not-so-shocking recent revelations of widespread sexual abuse of female students by their male peers in the Toronto Public School District can be explained, at least in part, by the fact that condom promotion relegates sex to a "pastime", thereby objectifying girls in the eyes of boys who will see them not as potential mothers or wives, but as objects for sexual gratification. Of course, our sex-saturated media culture contributes to this dynamic. When girls are viewed as objects, abuse naturally follows.
For decades the gay-lobby made slow, subtle inroads into educational curriculum and text books under the guise of euphemisms like "equity" and "diversity".
Since court rulings in favour of gay 'marriage' however, the gay lobby and its allies in government have put their foot on the accelerator. They are ramming through homosexual propaganda materials at a dizzying pace - in some schools as early as kindergarten! Although the documents and guidelines are flying faster than you can believe , it is being done under the cover of night, without public notification or debate, in the hope that parents do not find out until it is too late.
Although much of this homosexualist curriculum originates from the provincial Education Ministries, the Trustee has a moral obligation to work with parents, to help protect their inherent right to primacy in the education of their children. At the very least, trustees can fight to ensure that you as a parent are notified in advance every time a controversial lesson, speaker or event is planned in your child's class.
You need to identify, and vote for, those trustee candidates who are willing to protect your parental rights and the moral integrity of your kids. Nowadays, school trustee elections are literally a battleground for the heart and soul of your children, both in public and Catholic systems.
We need your help to identify which school board races are most important. If you have information about an elected trustee or candidate, please share it with us.
