A "Czar-castic" finale with Kevin Jennings, Safe Schools Czar

Today, we'll wrap up this "Czar-castic" series with a brief look at one more of Obama's czars - Kevin Jennings, Safe Schools Czar. His official title is Assistant Deputy Secretary Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools and he reports to the Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan. However, some will argue that his title of Safe Schools Czar is a bit of an oxymoron considering his record.

There are a few controversies surrounding Jennings :
  • He wrote the foreword to Queering Elementary Education which advocates teaching tolerance of homosexuality to elementary school children.
  • He founded the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) whose mission is to empower gay youth in the schools.
  • The GLSEN has a book list of recommended reading for kids. According to reports, many of the books contain explicit pictures and encourage child-adult sexual relationships.
One of my goals for this blog has been to keep it family friendly. Therefore, I have not shared everything "controversial" that I have found concerning Jennings. However, if you want to know more, I would encourage you to Google him, but I must warn you that much of it will be shocking and offensive. The big question I have after seeing some of the stuff about the GLSEN is why do they think this stuff has to be taught to children ?? Can't we allow kids to be kids and enjoy the innocence of childhood ??

I also have the same question of Jennings that I did for the five other radical czars we discussed - why is this man a "special advisor" to Obama ?? Is the GLSEN curriculum what Obama wants American children learning in the future ?? If so, why ?? It's not gonna help them read, write or get a good job. Maybe we should spend some extra time and money teaching them how to read and write. How about we teach more American history instead of having the kids read the GLSEN book list. Then, maybe at least some of them will know and understand the values this country was founded on. Maybe then, some of them can help get this country back on track because it's becoming more and more obvious to me everyday that many of us have forgotten where we came from and where we should be going. To quote Bobby Bowden - "it's a dad-gum shame." God help us all.
