“This is a dark day for Wisconsin students, who will be taught a curriculum that reduces them down to their body parts,” Alexandra Schweitzer, president of No Left Turn In Education – Wisconsin, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “No teacher should refer to their female students as ‘students who will menstruate’ or to their male students as ‘penis owners.’ This is a wholly inappropriate use of classroom time that ought to be spent on educational fundamentals.”
Parents were sent a letter from the school district detailing the curriculum on Aug. 3. The district community had until Aug. 17 to provide feedback on the curriculum to the school board through a Google form.
The sixth grade lesson plan tells teachers to call women “a person with a vulva.” The students are taught how their family and peers may influence their “attitude” towards gender identity and gender expression.
