The Party of Chaos! Fire every Republican on the "Assembly education committee," and fast!!!

Yes, this is stunning, with not one Republican member stepping in to correct this clueless and utterly stupid Representative's statement:

Public Education Chaos, Banning Racial History wasn't enough...: First, did anyone imagine the chaos this would create in our schools if we allowed a scattershot of subjects and topics to be opted out of at the mere whim of a parent who might be as dumb as any one of the Republican education committee members? My god!!!

Banning All LGBTQ History: Whatever happened to "academic freedom?" It was always a scam:

CapTimes: Wisconsin parents could opt their children out of educational programming "related to sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or gender expression" under a bill heard Thursday by the Assembly education committee.
"Who you gonna believe, me or your lying eyes?" If you have to say "this is not the intent," it means this is really what you intended...
Bill co-sponsor Rep. Donna Rozar, R-Marshfield, argued the proposal does not seek to alienate students. "The perceived intent that this is to erase LGBTQ youth or to alienate those youth in any way is not an intent of this legislation. I grow kind of weary of that being thrown at every piece of legislation that is there. Parents and guardians need to know when things are being taught at all grade levels that undermine their belief system."
We're all "kind of weary" of battling censorship and the vilification certain unpopular conservative subjects in our public schools.

Proving the critics of this lunacy right about how destructive Rozar's proposal really is...
Rep. Sondy Pope, D-Mount Horeb, asked if the requirement would apply to a history lesson on Harvey Milk, one of the country's first openly gay elected officials who, with San Francisco Mayor George Moscone, was assassinated in 1978.

"I'm not familiar," Rozar replied. "Is that a real person?"

The Final Word: Keeping race and bigotry at an early 1900's level for another generation or two is the apparent goal. Research warns us about that:

According to the GLSEN National School Climate Survey conducted in 2019, 66.9% of students in schools with an inclusive curriculum said their peers were accepting of LGBTQ people, compared to 37.9% of those without inclusive programming. 

LGBTQ students at inclusive schools were also less likely to miss school because they felt unsafe or uncomfortable. 

A 2020 survey by the Trevor Project found that school culture played a bigger role than home, community or work in preventing suicide among LGBTQ youth.
