LA Unified School District Lesson Plans Promote Child Transgenderism

The school district teamed up with several progressive groups to create the lessons.

QUICK FACTS:
  • The Los Angeles Unified School District has been working with left-wing groups to create lesson plans that promote transgenderism in children.
  • The group Open Books, previously named Gender Nation, was one of the partner groups that has a stated purpose to “validate children with LGBTQ+ storytelling.”
  • Open Books provided the public schools with books that promote child transgenderism, some aimed at children as young as kindergarten.
  • The group worked with LAUSD through “an enormous donation of LGBTQIA-themed books that are developmentally appropriate for elementary and span schools,” according to The LAUSD Human Relations, Diversity, and Equity website.
  • The books are accompanied by documentation assisting teachers who read the books on how they should attempt to “increase student understanding of ally behavior” and “expand students’ perceptions and understandings of gender.” 
WHAT THE CURRICULUM INCLUDES:
  • One of the books provided to LAUSD was the book “I am Jazz” by outspoken transgender activist Jazz Jennings.
  • The book tells the story of Jazz, which is about a boy who wants to change his gender, something the boy made very public about his own life.
  • “From the time she was two years old, Jazz knew that she had a girl’s brain in a boy’s body,” the book description explains.
  • Included with the book is a document on “Trans Topics” from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, which recommends the book for grades K-5.
  • The teaching materials told educators to “Avoid introducing it as a book about a transgender girl. Instead, you could simply say that this is a story based on the real-life experiences of a girl named Jazz.”
BACKGROUND:
  • LAUSD previously hosted a nurse from the Children’s Hospital LA’s Trans Youth Health and Development Department.
  • The medical staffer came to the school to provide information on “medical transition and gender care” and maintains a “Queer All School Year” calendar that encourages left-wing activism.
