Minnesota 4th graders were forced to complete an "equity survey" and they were told not to tell their parents about it

Jul 27th

If this doesn't make you consider taking your kids out of government schools, then I don't know what will.

The Sartell-St. Stephen School District in Minnesota required fourth-graders to complete an "equity survey" about race and gender.

Students were "not allowed" to ask their parents for help and they were told to not even "repeat any of the questions to their parents."

"My teacher said that I could not skip any questions even when I didn't understand them," one of the fourth graders said. "One question asked us what gender we identify with. I was very confused along with a lot of other classmates."

"Being asked to hide this from my mom made me very uncomfortable, like I was doing something wrong."

But wait! There's more!

The school district paid Equity Alliance Minnesota $80,000 to audit "racial inequities." This is the group that produced the aforementioned survey.

What a great use of taxpayer dollars, am I right?

"I do want to say though I believe that this wasn't a single case that her teacher made this decision," said Kelsey Yasgar, the mother of the girl in the video. "We had been informed that this came down from the administration and Equity Alliance of Minnesota instructed them to make sure the children did not share this information with their parents and that should pose a great concern in any parents' eyes."

This is disgusting, but it shouldn't be surprising.
