JEFFERSON CITY, MO – On June 8th, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt announced that he sent out subpoenas to seven different school districts in the state over what he referred to as “intrusive, racially motivated surveys” that students were subjected to without their parents’ consent.
Over the past year, a hot topic across the nation that intersects the world of social issues and politics has revolved around what is being taught inside of classrooms – namely, topics and subject matter considered to be highly objectionable to parents, and often with parents being kept in the dark.
Missouri’s attorney general proclaimed in a recently released video that he’s taking aim at schools engaged in such funny business, announcing the issuance of several subpoenas regarding some sort of survey administered to schoolchildren without the knowledge of their parents that allegedly contained inquiries about race, sexual orientation, and even their parents’ political views.
“Parents have every right to know what their child is being taught and assigned in school. As attorney general, strengthening parental rights and increasing transparency in schools has been one of my top priorities. That why today, we sent subpoenas to seven school districts across the state demanding information and answers on why students have been subjected to intrusive, racially motivated surveys created by third-party consultants.
“Some of these surveys asked students about their parents’ political views, their parents’ income, and questions about sexuality and race – all without parental consent. My office is going to get to the bottom of how much schools have paid these third-party consultants, how many students were required to complete these surveys, and if schools asked for parental permission. In short, we’re going to put a stop to these divisive surveys in our schools, once and for all.”
As mentioned earlier, issues involving materials being disseminated to minors in the classroom has garnered national attention, and with good reason. Back in May, Red Voice Media reported on a mother out of Las Vegas sharing details with her local school board of a homework assignment her 15-year-old daughter had received.
Speaking to the school board during the public meeting, the angered mother stated, “I’m going to read you an assignment given to my 15-year-old daughter at a local high school. This will be horrifying for me to read to you, but that will give you perspective on how she must have felt when her teacher required her to memorize this and to act it out in front of her entire class.”
Quoting the material from the assignment her daughter received, the mother read, “I don’t love you. It’s not you, it’s just I don’t like your dick or any dick in that case. I cheated Joe.”
Shortly thereafter, the school board cuts the woman’s mic off, telling her that they weren’t going to have people using expletives during the meeting. The mother shot back at that notion, asking, “If you don’t want me to read it to you, what was it like for my 15-year-old daughter to have to memorize pornographic material?”
