Chauna Leigh Holder has called antiracist education ‘essential’.
WFB: A school board candidate in a deep red Indiana county claimed on a public school Zoom call that children as young as fourth grade have “experimented with anal sex,” infuriating local parents who said the district held the event “without parental consent and transparency.”
Chauna Leigh Holder, a self-described “child health advocate,” joined a Hamilton Southeastern schools panel to discuss how teachers can advocate for LGBT students. Holder, an Indiana State Health Department nurse, also claimed that her “students in fifth, sixth, [and] seventh grade,” are “questioning” and “exploring” their sexualities.
The Hamilton Southeastern district is located in a county that former president Donald Trump carried by 7 points in 2020. Governor Eric Holcomb (R.) won the county by a 30-point margin. Holder’s comments and the district’s own promotion of a conversation on student sexuality show that the radicalization of K-12 education extends far beyond traditionally blue states.
Holder’s comments angered parents and a former Hamilton Southeastern science teacher, who say it’s “highly inappropriate” for the district to host such sensitive conversations about children. more here
