The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) published a guide that encourages schools to hide students’ gender identity from parents.
The 48-page Document, titled “Supporting Gender Expansive Students, Guidance for Schools,” not only pushes gender ideology and queer theory, it also tells schools to hide information from students’ parents when possible.
“To the extent possible, schools should refrain from revealing information about a student’s gender identity, even to parents,” the document from the ODE reads.
The guide also states that students may be worried about their parents discovering their gender identity. It says:
Students who do not openly identify themselves as their authentic gender may be worried about the privacy of their identities being revealed to students, school staff, communities, or their families. Supporting gender-explicit students is a goal that parents and families should be able to provide, although this may not always be possible.
Colt Gill is the Director of Oregon Department of Education, Deputy Superintendent of Public Instruction. The guide opens with a letter. Gill is unhappy that the Oregon Department of Education has been unable to provide adequate instruction for students.
