“Not permitted to skip any questions even if she didn’t understand them…”
Well, the Sartell-St. Stephen School District, roughly 50 miles to the northwest of the People’s Republic of Minneapolis, has just crossed their very own Rubicon.
As it turns out, fourth grader Hayley Yasgar was told by her teacher not to tell her parents regarding the questions of the recently administered “equity survey.”
Under the auspices not only of the local school board, but also the uber-leftie Equity Alliance Minnesota, Britain’s the Daily Mail is reporting, “‘Do you currently identify yourself as female, male, transgender (transgender people have a gender identity or gender expression that differs from their assigned sex. For example, they were born male but now identify as female), or something else?'”
But the news doesn’t end with the Daily Mail.
Fox News is also reporting (emphasis mine);
Sitting alongside her mother Kelsey, fourth grader Hayley Yasgar told “Fox & Friends” on Monday that the questions were confusing and it made her “very nervous and uncomfortable” when the students were told not to tell their parents.
According to a video uploaded by Alphanews, when students didn’t understand some of the survey questions, they were told by a teacher in the Sartell-St. Stephen School District to not repeat the survey questions to their parents.
“The survey asked questions that some students didn’t understand. Even after hearing an explanation from their teacher, some still couldn’t comprehend the survey questions,” The Center Square reported.
Kelsey Yasgar said that although parents were “informed that the equity audit was taking place, they were not informed on the date of the activity and not given other details.” She explained further that due to the lack of transparency from the school district and from Equity Alliance Minnesota, the third party that administered the survey, parents were not informed of the questions being asked to the students.
Yasgar was “very upset” when her daughter told her that she was instructed by teachers not to repeat any of the questions being asked of them.
“I do want to say though I believe that this wasn’t a single case that her teacher made this decision. We had been informed that this came down from the administration and Equity Alliance of Minnesota instructed them to make sure the children did not share this information with their parents and that should pose a great concern in any parents’ eyes,” Hayley said.
