Hawaii First State in the Nation to mandate Sexuality Education for Kindergarten

News Release from Rep Bob McDermott, September 1, 2016

Last evening in the State Capitol, State Representative Bob McDermott hosted an educational event designed to alert, engage, and empower parents with information regarding the recently passed BOE policy mandating sexuality education in Kindergarten.  While not yet implemented, the proposal is a cause of great concern an angst to parents, teachers, and principals.

Special guest speaker was Mrs. Sharon Slater chair of the United Nations Caucus on the Family who talked about the “attack on the family” and the sexualization of our youth without parental consent or involvement.

McDermott noted that Hawaii is the first and only state in the nation where the official statewide policy (103.5) is sexuality education beginning in Kindergarten.  In addition, any notion of abstinence or delaying the onset of early sexual activity was also jettisoned in the policy change by adopting Comprehensive Sexuality Education complete with the new components of "Gender Ideology" which have no basis in science. None.

McDermott explained how Planned Parenthood lobbied the BOE to secure the policy change with one public hearing.  Despite the fact the Superintendent was not supportive of the change, despite the fact that public testimony was 90 against the change and 66 in support, the reckless board members bowed at the altar of the Planned Parenthood sex hustlers and decreed a policy of sexuality education in KINDERGARTEN!

Why? To inculcate these precious innocent children with the "politically correct" notions of gender roles, gender ideology, and that homosexuality and transgenderism are the healthy, wholesome moral equivalents of male/female reproduction.  The left believes that the Parents must not have time to impart their politically incorrect versions of morality and decency onto their 5 year old children.  This is why it was imperative for Planned Parenthood to get this into the early grades.

McDermott said the good news is that this policy has not yet been implemented, because they have no standards, they have no curriculum, they have had no public vetting or review process of any proposed new curriculum; but it's on the books and ready to go.

This policy is a national embarrassment.  McDermott has been trying to get straight answers from the BOE, but says, “It is like making a soup sandwich…impossible!”
