CA School in Damage Control Mode After Telling Students They’re Privileged if They’re Christian, Male or Straight
“If you can use public bathrooms without stares, fear, or anxiety, you have cisgender privilege”
In at least one class, students were reportedly told that cellphones weren’t allowed, which suggests the school knew how people would react to this.
The Blaze reports:
Woke lesson at public high school told students they’re privileged if they’re Christian, straight, or male. Now district reportedly is doing damage control.
A California school district reportedly went into damage control mode after the Daily Signal called it out for lessons that told high school students they are the beneficiaries of privilege if they are Christian, male, or straight.
What are the details?
The Desert Sands Unified School District in La Quinta, which is in Riverside County, said it was taking “corrective” measures after the lessons came to light, the outlet said.
“The lesson was not in alignment with the district-adopted curriculum” and “actions are being taken to rectify the situation,” the district told the Daily Signal in a statement, adding that “the teacher was operating outside the scope of [the] adopted curriculum and had potentially presented a biased position. Corrective action is underway.”
The outlet said it hasn’t been able to identify which teacher used the lesson.
District parent Celeste Fiehler posted the lesson in the Facebook group Informed Parents of California after another parent told her about it, the Daily Signal said.
The outlet said pages from lessons dated Nov. 15 to 19 tell students if they “don’t have to think about it, it’s a privilege.”
“If you can use public bathrooms without stares, fear, or anxiety, you have cisgender privilege,” one graphic reads, the Daily Signal reported, adding that another graphic reads, “If, while growing up, college was an expectation of you, not a lofty dream, you have class privilege.”
Fiehler said in her Facebook post that the material was used in a ninth-grade English class in which students were told “no cellphones allowed,” the outlet said.
“Wonder why,” she added in her post, according to the Daily Signal.
