Kindergartners in Illinois may soon be learning all about "gender identity" and "cohabitating families"
· Aug 25, 2021 ·

In between snacktime and story hour, kindergartners in Illinois may soon be learning about the enlivening and interesting worlds of LGBT ideology and unmarried cohabitation:

Gov. J.B. Pritzker on Friday signed Senate Bill 818, which his office said will modernize sex education standards with age-appropriate content for grades K-12.

The measure requires the Illinois State Board of Education to provide the standards for schools that teach sex education by August 2022. Schools don't need to adopt the standards unless they teach sex ed. Parents will be able to opt their children out.

The law in question says schools will be required to use the National Sex Education Standards as their guideposts. Those standards begin imposing socio-sexual education on children as young as five, with the goal of thoroughly educating them on "gender, gender identity, and gender-role stereotypes" and "different kinds of families" (including "cohabitating" and "same-gender" ones) by the time they're in second grade.

Just FYI for no reason at all: Illinois is rated a "no notice, low regulation" homeschool state by the legendary Home School Legal Defense Association!
