Thank the Erie, Illinois School Board for Defending Our Kids

by ActRight Community in National Organization for Marriage

It all started when concerned parents in Erie, Illinois got word of plans for a new curriculum (even in a MATH class!) teaching their children as young as 4 years old about same-sex marriage and cross-dressing.

Listening to the parents’ concerns, the Erie school board voted 5-2 to reject the curriculum introduced by the Gay, Straight, Lesbian Education Network (GLSEN).

But it didn’t end there . . . now GLSEN has launched a national campaign to pressure the Erie school board into imposing its “Ready, Set, Respect!” curriculum over the objection of parents and taxpayers.

Please take 2 minutes to send the Erie School Board a message thanking them

for respecting the rights of parents, and urging them to stand strong!

Example Letter

Dear President Brown and Superintendent Cox,

As a parent, although I don’t live in your community, I wanted to thank you for the Erie Community School District’s decision to honor the concerns of local parents with respect to the GLSEN “Ready, Set, Respect!” curriculum that would teach students as young as pre-kindergarten about same-sex marriage and various “gender expressions.”

While all of our children will eventually be exposed to alternative lifestyles, I thank you for partnering with the parents in your community, and letting the parents decide when, where and how to teach their children about these issues. 

I understand that GLSEN has organized a national campaign to pressure your school district into adopting their agenda-driven curriculum.  With that in mind, I thought you might also appreciate hearing from a parent who thanks you for protecting your youngest students and for listening to the parents in your district on these important matters.

Keep up the good work!
