A teacher used LGBT-themed flashcards to educate preschoolers about colors. In response to the situation, the school administration took immediate action and clarified that the cards are not part of the approved curriculum.
Republican Rep. Erin Paré was the one who received an email from a parent warning about the use of these cards, which include a drawing of a pregnant man. Paré called Ballentine Elementary School, which is part of the Wake County public school system, and alerted the administration to what was going on.
Management found the stack of cards in a preschool classroom and verified with the teacher that they had been used in the classroom to teach colors. It was confirmed that the teaching cards were not part of the approved curriculum and that they did not know they were being used.
North Carolina Representative Erin Pare stressed the importance of parents being aware of what their children are being taught and in an interview with Fox News praised the school’s administration for taking action.

“When you’re looking at a card in front of a preschooler that has a mommy hugging a daddy with a baby in his belly, that’s just not age-appropriate material to be showing preschoolers,” Pare said.
“This was a tool that one individual teacher brought into the classroom, and the principal didn’t know about it, and it was not approved by the district. I think this underscores a greater point that it’s so important for parents to be engaged in what goes on in their child’s classroom – what’s being taught and how things are being taught. And I think that parents are asking for more of that ability to follow this. And I think that that’s appropriate and makes a whole lot of sense,” she stressed.
“Schools should only be using age-appropriate materials, and these flashcards clearly do not meet that standard for a pre-school classroom. I hope schools across Wake County and the State of North Carolina will follow the example of Ballentine and respond swiftly when a parent expresses concern and ensure that materials like this are not being used to teach young students,” Pare said.
After what happened came to public light, the reactions have not been long in coming. Representative Dan Bishop also made reference to the fact and spoke about how the left seeks to indoctrinate children.
“Leftists will stop at nothing to indoctrinate kids with woke ideology. Then they label parents as domestic terrorists if they peacefully petition school boards.No more. This is a fight we must and WILL win,” Bishop said on his Twitter account.
Not just LGBT educational cards, there are also tales for babies
Teaching cards are not the only “educational” tools being used to induce LGBT or Critical Race Theory issues in young children.
It recently became known that there are tales containing explicit messages about sex change in children, self-perception and racism.
Such is the case of the New York City Department of Education, which recommended 7 tales aimed at first graders and kindergarteners on transgenderism and other left-wing issues.
As this is happening, dozens of lawsuits are beginning to emerge against school districts from parents for withholding information about their children’s gender transition, or data related to school curriculum.
