High School Assignment Forces Kids to Disclose Sexual Orientation, Reveals Massive Political Agenda

BY MEGAN FOX SEPTEMBER 5, 2019

A high school in North Carolina is under fire for an assignment entitled "Diversity Inventory" that left students crying and parents outraged. Heritage High School English teacher Melissa Wilson gave out an assignment to her class last week that asked them to categorize themselves, their parents, their doctor, friends, and more by race, class, sexuality, and religion, among other things.

Students reported that Wilson made them go stand by a sign on the wall that correlated with their sexuality. One student called a parent during the exercise to express her discomfort with it. Another student broke down crying. North Carolina Values Coalition reports.

 

Students were also asked to stand up, and walk towards posters in different areas of the room that correlated with their sexual identities. Students were traumatized. Some were even brought to tears. At this morning's meeting, one parent said that her student had been experiencing PTSD from the incident. Another student didn't attend school on Friday, and is so scared to return to Wilson's classroom environment that they told their parent they hoped the hurricane would distract everyone from this incident. Another parent's child Facetimed them in the middle of the classroom to tell them how uncomfortable they were with the assignment. Another student had a friend who had recently shared very private information about themselves to a select number of their peers, and went white when the teacher asked students to now stand and reveal their private identities.

 

When the students expressed discomfort, the teacher's response was to tell them it was alright because she used to be Catholic and is now a bi-sexual atheist.

 

The North Carolina Values Coalition found that the teachers at this school district are involved in a district-sponsored program called WCPSS Equity. The assignment, created by Wilson, is taken from lessons found on a website founded by the SPLC called Tolerance.org. The district also contributes to Tolerance.org via articles written by at least one staff member, assistant superintendant of WCPSS, Rodney Trice, who wrote:

 

Equity work is not a one-off professional development training or an office that works in isolation. This work requires embedded and systemic shifts. Diversity, equity and inclusion must be infused within the very fabric of your organization, school or district. The transportation department needs to be operating with an equity lens just as much as an academic department, and so on. While traditional leadership is top-down, equity leadership looks more like a lattice—everyone from families to support staff to educators all the way to the school board must be in.

 

The site also gives away grants to schools that use their radical teaching materials:

Teaching Tolerance Educator Grants support educators who embrace and embed anti-bias principles throughout their schools. These grants, ranging from $500-$10,000, support projects that promote affirming school climates and educate youth to thrive in a diverse democracy.

Two things.

 

First off, this is outrageous and should never be part of a public school classroom. This teacher, if this is true, should be fired. If the school sanctioned this, then the parents need to demand accountability.

 

However, some of the reactions from the students had me scratching my head. Are we raising such wimpy kids? My daughter, who just graduated high school, would have looked at this and said I’m not doing this crap. She would have walked out knowing I had her back. She wouldn’t have face timed me. She wouldn’t suffer from PSTD. She would have went and got a cup of coffee or something.

 

Man, what wimpy kids. And what a <censored> teacher.

Agree with erp.

Just bi? Sounds pretty bigoted to exclude the other 256 genders.

I honestly don't see how this did not become an outright laughfest. How could any teenagers take this seriously? I know that a teacher had tried to pull this crap at the school I went to, the "bi-sexual atheist" would have been so frustrated, she would have been the one crying and calling her mom.

I agree with all three major points made so far:

 

1 - I agree this was outrageous and indefensible. This "teacher" needs to be fired, along with any school board member or administrator who approved it.

 

2 - I agree these kids must be incredibly wimpy snowflakes.

 

3 - I agree that if any teacher had pulled a stunt like this at my school, LOL, none of us kids would've cooperated for a minute. In those days we were still able to think for ourselves and recognize a ridiculous farce.

I know a few in my class would have had fun with her and would have seemed to cooperate just to make a joke of what she was trying to do. But I am talking about rural Nebraska in the early 80's. But where in Nebraska isn't it rural. :tongue2:

My first thought was, 'Why? Are they looking for someone to date?'

I don’t know enough about what transpired in the classroom to make judgements on the kids for crying and suffering PTSD. Maybe it’s an over-reaction their part, maybe it’s not.

 

I do know enough to know that this “assignment” should NEVER be a part of any class, and this teacher should be fired, and the Principal and School District should be held accountable financially to those kids and their parents for the suffering they’ve endured - over-reaction or not.

You should come home once in awhile. There are too many idiots in Omaha these days.

 

I would be okay with this assignment if there were a poster that read "None of your f'ing business".

My reply would be I'm an 'autosexual'.

 

That's the one where you go @#&^ yourself.

I was a 'non-conformist' type of student (a looooong time ago in the 70's), and I would have had the guts to ask the 'teacher' what did this line of questioning have to do with the subject matter being 'taught'.
