ACLU goes up against PA school district for allowing parental consent for student gender transition

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in Pennsylvania filed a federal discrimination complaint with the civil-rights divisions of both the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Education against one of the state’s largest school districts for “discriminating against gay and transgender students.”

The ACLU argues a proposed policy which makes teachers and staff members identify students by their legal names and biological sex unless the parents have approved otherwise, is discrimination against gay and trans students.

The lawsuit, filed October 6, accuses the Central Bucks School District of engaging in “illegal discrimination.” The complaint states the district has chronically failed “to take reasonable and necessary measures to address persistent and severe bullying and harassment of LGBTQ+ students generally, and gender non-conforming students in particular.”

National Review reports:

The complaint was filed on behalf of seven people, whose names and specific allegations — comprising 28 pages of the 72-page complaint — were redacted from the copy released publicly.

School board president Dana Hunter addressed the complaint at the beginning of an emotional and sometimes contentious board meeting on Tuesday night. She said the district is committed to every student and is “resolute and united in its zero tolerance for discrimination, bullying, or harassment of any kind.” The district’s polices, she said, are designed to protect students.

“Should a staff member fail to follow policies, they put student well-being at risk,” Hunter said.

 The debate in Central Bucks is just the latest touchpoint in what has turned into a nationwide debate over how teachers and schools should handle students who want to change their name and gender identity in school, but without their parents’ knowledge. In nearby Virginia, the Department of Education released new guidelineslast month requiring teachers to obtain written permission from parents before beginning to treat students as transgender. Other school districts, including in Iowa and Wisconsin, have faced lawsuits for helping students to socially transition to another gender without their parents’ consent.

More than half of top Medical Schools now mandate Critical Race Theory

In a win for the woke warriors who care more about feelings than they do science or medical wellbeing, medical schools are being forced to mandate Critical Race Theory (CRT) training.

According to the Critical Race Training in Education database and reported by the Daily Caller:

Approximately 58 of the top 100 medical schools ranked by the U.S. News & World report include CRT in their courses and student training, according to the Critical Race Training in Education database. Of the top schools, 46 provide students and staff with resources by Robin DiAngelo, the author of “Nice Racism,” a book about how progressive white people perpetuate racial harm, and Ibram X. Kendi, the author of several books on antiracism including “Stamped.”

The Critical Race Training in Education database states, “As with our higher education database, some have embraced CRT explicitly, while others have a continuum of programming, such as ‘antiracism,’ ‘equity,’ and ‘Diversity, Equity and Inclusion’ that does not easily fit into a Yes/No construct…We provide information from which you can make the most informed decision possible.”

The Daily Caller notes that CRT holds that America is fundamentally racist, yet it teaches people to view every social interaction and person in terms of race. Its adherents pursue “antiracism” through the end of merit, objective truth and the adoption of race-based policies.

The antiracism push in medical education is increasing; to reach diversity, equity and inclusion goals, 35.6% of medical schools are offering incentives to departments who meet the diversity goals set by the institution. In July, the Association of American Medical Colleges released new guidelines on diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives for medical schools to teach students to consider their “privilege” and patients’ “intersectionality” when providing treatment.

The Daily Caller provides a breakdown on some of the nation’s top Medical Schools:

Harvard Medical School, named the top medical school in the country by the U.S. News & World report, is developing new classes for their masters and Ph.D. programs which will help students “acknowledge the ways in which racism is embedded in science and scientific culture and work to redress these longstanding issues,” according to Harvard Medical School’s website. The school’s Global Surgery and Social Change program requires its students to “participate in and lead informed discussions about antiracism through a dedicated antiracism curriculum” in order to educate students on the “history of racism and colonialism in health.”

The University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine, ranked third in the U.S. News & World report of medical schools, has racial affinity caucusing groups for students to participate in “antiracist work and process the impact of racism on ourselves and our community,” the school’s website reads. In September 2022, the school announced its “Differences Matter Initiative” to help the school “accelerate the achievement of equity and inclusion across the medical profession.”

Duke University School of Medicine, ranked sixth by the U.S. News & World report of medical schools, implemented an antiracism committee to “incorporate teaching racism and racial inequities” through “teaching, research and clinical missions,” the school website showed. The school offers resources including “an antiracist reading list from Ibram X. Kendi” to help further its goal of making the school “an educational and research leader and agent of change towards an antiracist culture.”

The department of surgery at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, ranked 68th for medical schools in the nation, provides “ongoing faculty development sessions in topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion,” the school website stated. Students in the department of surgery will be taught to “eliminate the impact of implicit and explicit bias” within their practice.
