I Am NOT Confused! Am I?

I attended the Flagler County School Board’s Community Advisory Committee meeting last night, Feb. 4, 2020. This group was seated to narrow a list of 35 job applicants who seek to replace the current Superintendent of Schools, James Tager, who will leave the position in June 2020. School Board member Colleen Conklin has been a loud and clear voice in support of the talking points of homosexual and transgender lobbyists. These groups are usually represented by Human Rights Campaign (HRC), American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Southern Poverty Law Council (SPLC) and Equality Florida.

At the last two School Board meetings where I attended, Conklin was the lone voice of support among Board members, sometimes ‘congratulating’ the family whose teenage daughter is apparently confused about her gender. Folks, gender is a state of mind. Sex is biological. This young lady cannot possibly be confused about her SEX. She is a girl. She gets her period every month. Her mother and father know that. Her sibling and friends know it. However, all of her TEACHERS at Flagler Palm Coast High School have apparently bought into her self-diagnosed ‘identity’ as a boy.

Her family has been asking for new ‘policies’ in the District’s School Board manual to ‘protect transgender’ students. Let me make this plain; any such ‘new policy’ will CREATE transgender students! When a child promotes their own confusion about their sex, credible statistics state that 3.5 youngsters in the child’s peer group will say ‘me too’! Check the

This confused girl commented at the January 21, 2020 School Board meeting that “all my teachers checked to make sure they were using my ‘preferred pronouns’.

This is where I get CONFUSED!

The public has been told by the Board via Conklin, that no policies have changed and they don’t need to change for all children to ‘feel safe’. I met personally with Superintendent Tager on February 4, 2020 to learn more about his role concerning instructing teachers to use dangerous ‘preferred pronouns’ requested by confused students. His consistent response was “no policy of the School Board has changed.”

I asked him directly, if the policy of Board has NOT changed, are the teachers behaving in direct opposition to School Board policy by ACTING as if new policies to include dangerous transgender ideologies have been instituted? “No policy of the School Board has changed.”

I asked should not these teachers and staff be held accountable and disciplined for their insubordination to current standards of Flagler County School Board policy concerning a student’s biological sex and how they are to be address? Nowhere in the policy does it instruct teachers to use a student’s ‘preferred pronouns’ or (with exception of a knick-name) address the student in any such manner not consistent with their biological sex? “No policy of the School Board has changed.”

Well, then shouldn’t ALL PARENTS in the District be notified of the breac
