Elementary Students Forced to Recite Gender Neutral ‘Declaration of Independence’

Nation’s founding document altered to fit teacher’s political ideologies

The students were then told to recite the revised edition.

The student’s mother, Elizabeth Vaillencourt, took to social media to complain about the teacher injecting her politics, which school officials claimed “hurt the teacher’s feelings.”

“I was hurt. I was mortified. I was disturbed at the fact that somebody is changing historical documents and nobody has the right to change our historical documents,” Vaillencourt told ABC affiliate KGUN9.com. “You teach what’s written. You don’t get to rewrite it and teach it how you feel you believe.”

Administrators initially responded to the parents’ complaint by relocating the child to another class, however, “On Wednesday, Vaillencourt said the superintendent’s office contacted her to tell her what the teacher did was against school policy,” reports KGUN9.

A statement from a Mesa Public Schools spokesperson said the teacher was “provided feedback and guidance,” and that the document was restored “to its original format.”

It should be recited as written, and not modified in any way. School administration, when learning of the alteration to the text, provided feedback and guidance to the teacher to restore the document to its original format.

There is not a specific reference in policy to the discussion of political beliefs by a teacher in a classroom, however in practice the district does not allow teachers to share their political views with students. When the teacher used a personal example of how individuals can have differing political views but still be friends, the principal reminded the teacher that personal examples are not appropriate in a classroom setting.

KGUN reporter Sonu Wasu also says a teacher at another Arizona school was also reprimanded for telling students not to say, “Bless you,” after someone sneezes.

  2. Since 1963, God has not been allowed in schools..and there are plenty of Godless teachers,, so what else can you expect when that’s how it is in the public schools controlled by the federal govt.
