Biden’s Strategy to Sexualize K-12 Public Schools

By Carole Hornsby Haynes July 24, 2023 

In February President Biden signed an Executive Order that embedded a Marxist Diversity Equity Inclusion (DEI) industry in all federal agencies. Czars play watchdog to get federal preferential treatment for “unserved communities” – namely non-whites, LGBT, pregnant women, religious groups, and immigrants.  

One of the three implementation strategies of the order is the continued weaponization of the Civil Rights Law, disguised as the way “to prevent and address discrimination and advance equity for all.” America First Legal noted this is a new twist on “affirmative action.” 

In “celebration of Pride Month,” the Biden Administration announced the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) will appoint a coordinator to address the growing threat of “book bans” -- code for Book Czar. The White House claims that book bans “create a hostile school environment [that] may violate federal civil rights laws.” 

School routine reviews over whether books for the curriculum or library are age appropriate are deceptively characterized by activists as “book bans.” If parents simply voice their concerns about age appropriateness of books with sexually explicit content, the USDE's Office of Civil Rights (OCR) claims this is a violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act (which prohibits race discrimination at schools that receive federal funding) and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (which prohibits discrimination based on sex.) 

This deceptive strategy was employed in Forsyth County, Georgia in an OCR investigation which claimed that district-level discussions about excluding certain books in libraries can create a hostile environment for students who identify with the gender identity, sexual orientation, and race or color of the authors or characters in the books being challenged. What riled the OCR was parents who had made comments about the sexually explicit content, gender identity or sexual orientation as well as negative comments about diversity, inclusion, and Critical Race Theory. 

The OCR is walking out on an limb that will get sawed off behind them. They have no authority to tell parents that their concern over age appropriate materials is a potential violation of their children’s civil rights. Not only does the federal government not have Constitutional authority over education, but the Department of Education in 1979 was established with the understanding that the federal government would have no authority over education, including curricula and state and local control. 

In the Forsyth County case, the OCR illegally concluded that “communications at board meetings conveyed the impression that books were being screened to exclude diverse authors and characters, including people who are LGBTQI+ and authors who are not white, leading to increased fears and possibly harassment.” 

To resolve the problem, the OCR bullied the school district into submission if they wanted to continue federal aid. 

This is just the beginning. If the Biden Administration gets away with this charade, we can expect OCR investigations nationwide any time local school boards try to remove from school libraries sexually explicit content that does not align with their priorities and values.

Just as with Forsyth, when parents or school boards raise legitimate concerns about sexually explicit materials in public school libraries, civil rights complaints will be filed with the Department of Education. Schools will cave to keep federal aid or avoid costly court fights. Parents will be ignored and even harrassed. In the end, school officials will blame federal civil rights laws for their caving to government tyranny and keeping pornographic materials in their school libraries. 

Since unleashing the FBI on “domestic terrorist” parents brought down the public’s wrath, the Biden administration is twisting the law to cover their scheme to sexualize K-12 public schools. It’s still government war on parents who believe they have the right to educate their own children without government interference. 

State bans and flipping school boards cannot stop this. Passing more laws to stop the federal government from breaking the law? That’s outrageous! Yet many believe that is the solution. Flipping local school boards? Many believe this is a solution, not realizing that local school boards have very little control and cannot make substantive changes. Their main role is to deal with federal and state laws. Conservative board members are engaged in battling radical activists who spend their time and money replacing conservatives with their lapdogs. 

So what is the solution? Public education is already imploding as parents yank their children out and teachers find other employment. A parallel society has long been underway as parents choose one or more of the many alternatives to centralized government control where taxpayer money is spent creating little Marxist activists.
