Public schools in the US have rapidly transformed from educational institutions into LGBT-indoctrinating hubs being run by droves of progressive “woke” teachers and administrators. Our job, as parents, to be informed and involved with what’s happening at these public institutions has never been more vital.
Despite parental concerns and even laws on the books that regulate what schools can and cannot do and say to children, schools are nonetheless attempting to push the boundaries while trying to fly under the radar. Luckily, parents are paying attention.
One school district in North Carolina is administering a survey to students in which they were questioned on their sexual orientation. The survey not only has parents outraged but also appears to have been in violation of federal law which requires schools to obtain written consent from parents prior to asking students questions pertaining to sexual “attitude.”
WCNC Charlotte reports:
Students as young as sixth grade are being asked to identify their sexual orientation in an annual survey administered by Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools.
The voluntary survey is being given to students starting in 5th grade. While all of those students are being asked to voluntarily identify their gender identification, students starting in 6th grade are being asked to identify their sexual orientation.
CMS says sharing a survey that includes those terms could help to better assess the current student climate.
For the question about gender identity, students can pick between:
- Gender fluid
- Not sure
For the question about sexual orientation, students can pick:
- Gay or Lesbian
- Questioning my sexual orientation
- Not sure
An additional question asks students if they identify as transgender.
The school district said in a statement to WCNC, “The voluntary survey asks a range of questions on student efficacy, persistence, safety, belonging and bullying,” adding that, “demographic data is collected, including gender identity and race.”
This is the first year the questions were added regarding student sexual identity, and, understandably, many parents find the questions to be inappropriate and unnecessary.
“I’m wondering why they are asking those questions right now especially with that grade,” asked parent Faye Harvey.
“I rather know about it first and then talk to my child and then we discuss if it’s uncomfortable for them then it’s going to be uncomfortable for them to answer that,” Harvey added. It’s also Harvey’s right as a parent, under federal law, to be informed about such surveys prior to the school administering them.
Other parents anonymously called into local radio station WBT and told radio show host Mark Garrison what they thought of the questions.
One parent of a 10-year-old student said, “I’m furious about it and I don’t get furious about much,” adding she was “horrified.”

As if we needed another reason to pull our vulnerable, impressionable young children out of the corrupt, progressive public education system. This is simply outrageous.
