School officials under fire for reading transgender children's book to KINDERGARTNERS without telling their parents

This is absolutely ridiculous!  Kids in kindergarten do not need to be taught issues of gender and sexuality.  They need to be allowed to be kids.
Officials at an elementary school in Maine have come under fire for teaching students about transgender issues without first seeking the approval of parents.

And get this...
During a lesson on tolerance and acceptance,...
You mean shoving it down peoples throats?  

Some parents might not want their young children to worry about such issues at the age of 5 or 6, although I suppose the bleeding-hearts will find some reason to call them insensitive or intolerant for it.  It's still their right.  They're the kids parents.  They can teach them what they want.  There's plenty of time for issues of sexuality later.  
One unnamed mom was so angry she contacted conservative pundit Sean Hannity after she felt that the school ignored her initial complaint.
'I feel like my thoughts, feelings and beliefs were completely ignored….My right as a parent to allow or not allow this discussion with my child was taken from me. It is very upsetting to me that I didn't have an option at all,' she told Hannity.com
'When I spoke with the principal he was very cold about it. It's amazing how thoughtless the school has been with this whole thing.' 
And there you have it.  "Cold and thoughtless."  Sounds sort of insensitive don't you think?  After all, why should anyone worry about what the parents think?

Unfortunately this is more in line whit a much larger problem.  The school's have been overriding parental rights for a long time.  Even in Maine.
It is no accident, no coincidence. And it’s not just your imagination. There really is a steady trend by the government and the courts to remove the influence of parents from the public schools.
