The Federal government supplies only a small percentage of the funds required to operate our public schools. Nevertheless, Federal bureaucrats use this money as a means of control.
The Biden administration’s Department of Agriculture is now demanding that any school or other establishment that accepts federal food funding, including food stamps, must allow males who claim to be female to access female private spaces, such as showers, bathrooms, and sleeping areas. Such organizations must also follow protocols such as requiring staff to use LGBT preferred pronouns to describe transgender people and allowing male staff to dress as women while on the job.
Private church affiliated schools may qualify for a waiver exempting them from these requirements. USDA officials are telling these schools they may request a religious exemption by submitting a written declaration to the Secretary of Agriculture “identifying the provisions that conflict with a specific tenet of their religious organization.”
Parents with children in public schools can urge school districts to not comply with this Biden Administration’s gross extension of Federal power. Meanwhile, the issue will be fought out in the courts.
Though this regulation may ultimately be overturned by one means or another, it could take years. Meanwhile, millions of American children will be forced to eat their school lunches with a side of sexual politics.
Are we willing to sell our children to Federal swamp creatures for a mess of pottage?
