The political leader is attempting to block gender theory from being taught in the classroom.
- Australian Opposition Leader Peter Dutton is fighting with families against radical gender theory being introduced in the classroom.
- According to Dutton’s assertion, the progressive ideology is in contradiction to the values of millions of Australians.
- The politician asserted that while spending on public and private schools has gone up, educational standards have gone down. Schools therefore need to help future generations foster a love of country without sacrificing historical standards.
- “As a nation, we celebrate our wonderful Indigenous history,” the Australian politician said. “But we need to be equally proud of our British heritage and our migrant story.”
- Dutton went on to argue that teachers need to lead in the classroom to help students “learn respect, discipline, and ‘how to think’ not ‘what to think.’”
DUTTON’S COMMENTS ON THE EDUCATION SYSTEM:
- Dutton offered a budget reply speech on Oct 27, saying that the education system should haVe never allowed ideological-driven advocates to have “too much influence” over what is taught to children.
- “Teaching a sanitized and selective version of history and the arts—and radical gender theory—is not in our children’s best interests,” he said. “What is needed is a focus on making the basics a priority—reading, writing, and maths.”
- Conflict about gender theory has been raging worldwide.
- Author J.K. Rowling compared transgender theory to the Soviet Union in an anti-communist tweet, as American Faith previously reported.
- The author responded to a pro-transgender activist by quoting Czechoslovakian President Václav Havel in his 1978 essay, The Power of the Powerless.
- Rowling referenced the drive for conformity in the Soviet Union, insinuating that the transgender platform of today works in similar ways, by intimidating those who don’t accept it.
