Minnesota Parents Sue To Get Trans Classes In Kindergarten

Parents of a five-year-old trans-questioning child have filed a complaint against a charter school for refusing to teach harmful, anti-science beliefs about human biology.

Parents of a 5-year-old “transgender child” have filed a complaint against a St. Paul charter school, alleging it failed to protect him from bullying and refused to teach all the students their preferred transgender-awareness curriculum.

David and Hannah Edwards, whose child was born a boy but now thinks he’s a girl, has filed with the city’s Department of Human Rights, claiming their child “wasn’t able to take full advantage of Nova’s educational opportunities because of her gender identity and expression. This violated her rights.”

When the boy showed up at school wearing pink tennis shoes and wanting to wear a jumper like the girls in gym class, other children reportedly pointed and laughed at him. The parents contacted the school and wanted something done to protect their child from bullying, despite the fact that the school currently has an anti-bullying policy.

Nova Classical Academy’s executive director, Eric Williams, told 5 Eyewitness News the school has a mandatory policy, called the Bullying Prohibition Policy, which they are simply trying to follow. “He says that means providing a safe and welcoming environment for all students, regardless of their status.”

Because the Edwards begot their political beliefs into a personal anti-science religion, they are compelled to evangelize all others, better than any Mormon missionary can do door to door.  These will be common occurrences so I hope all of our private schools have a plan of actions when these situations arise.  It seems doubtful the parents really had an intention of supporting the school, but were baiting for some legal action.
