Liberal teachers are the downfall of the nation. A Minnesota student has claimed she and her classmates were told to keep the content of a so-called “equity survey” — including questions about gender identity — from their parents during this past school year. Haylee Yasgar, a student at Riverview Intermediate School in the St. Cloud suburb of Sartell, told the local school board during a July 19 meeting that she was “very confused” by the survey.
“My teacher said that I could not skip any questions even when I didn’t understand them. One question asked us what gender we identify with,” Haylee told the board, according to video posted online by independent Minnesota outlet Alpha News. “A boy in my class asked the teacher if his mom could explain the question to him, because even after the teacher explained it, he still didn’t understand it,” the child continued. “My teacher told him that he was not allowed to ask his mom, and that we could not repeat any of the questions to our parents.”
Haylee told the board the experience made her “uncomfortable and nervous.” “My mom always tells me I can tell her anything, but she also tells me I can trust my teachers, too,” she said. “Being asked to hide this from my mom made me feel very uncomfortable, like I was doing something wrong.” Alpha News reported that the survey was part of an $80,000 audit by Equity Alliance MN, a non-profit group which claims it “works with students, educators, and districts to achieve our vision of educational equity for all students.” Equity Alliance MN touts its equity audits on its website, describing them as providing “insight into current practices, [educating] on systemic and programmatic inequities, and a foundation to implement the necessary processes and steps to plan for change.”
