All-too-powerful DoE targets Texas school for removing LGBT gender books

Published in Blog on January 18, 2023 by Brianna Kraemer

Under the Biden administration’s Department of Education, the Office for Civil Rights has launched an investigation into a Texas school for removing gender ideology books from its libraries.

A complaint of discrimination by the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas was filed last summer against Granbury Independent School District, a public school system. The complaint asserts that district officials ordered the removal of LGBT books which is an alleged violation of Title IX, a shield against discrimination on the basis of sexual identity. 

The excessive involvement of the federal government in local schools comes as data shows public school enrollment fell to a 10-year low in the fall of 2020. Enrollment dropped by 1.4 million students in just one year.

The Education Department confirmed it has launched a federal investigation into the school district's failure to represent LGBT characters. If the complaint is supported by the government, this could spark public schools to bend to more gender ideology materials in an effort to avoid government retaliation.

The desire to control educational materials down to the district level is in itself a major sign that the federal government is after all vulnerable minds that are receptive to government indoctrination.

This is exactly why we need to call a Convention of States and stop the federal government from controlling local education. It’s time we abolish the unnecessary Department of Education. It's time to leave it up to the states and parents, not the feds.

As Mark Meckler said on Tucker Carlson's show this week, "Say to the federal government, 'Nope, you can't be involved in education.' That's a state-based thing. I think it's local. It should go to the states and let the states push it down to the local level."

"It's just a union-management organization," commented Tucker.

The Convention of States movement is all about returning power to where it belongs: with the people. The federal government does not advocate for the beliefs of our local communities and every state already has its own state education department. 

"It shouldn't be a federal government thing. Since we spent hundreds of billions of dollars on education at the Department of Education, we literally have no improvement in the educational status of our children. That's the best case," added Meckler.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
