Brave teacher tells school board: Teach education, not left-wing ideas

A Louisiana high school teacher laid it on the line recently when he correctly told the local school board that gender identity education was "liberal ideology" that is creeping into New Orleans area classrooms.

Jonathan Koeppel, a third-year Spanish teacher, played a clip from a lesson used by students called "BrainPop," in which children are directed to stop using personal pronouns like "he" and "she" and begin using gender-neutral words like "they."

While addressing the school board, he said, "This isn't a political indoctrination camp, it's public education." His full address can be heard in a viral video circulating the web.

"I was really shocked when I found out that a children’s program was promoting this idea that there are infinite genders to children," Koeppel told the Daily Caller. "When I saw this was happening, I realized that kids in my area were being exposed to this; I said you know what, I am not going to be quiet about it. I am going to make a very firm stance." More and more educators are beginning to stand up and speak out against social experimentation and the indoctrination of public school children into "progressive" ideology.

Jonathon Koeppel is a champion that parents should applaud and an inspirational example to other teachers who want to see common sense teaching returned to the classroom.

Sign our note of encouragement to Jonathan Koeppel, thanking him for his leadership in speaking out against teaching programs and curricula that undermine the trust that parents put in public education.
