Kindergarten used to be a place for children to learn how to add, subtract, and read. Next year, Washington school children as young as five years old will instead be learning about gender expression, gender identity and fluidity, sexual orientation, and HIV prevention.
The newly-minted health and education standards, released by the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), will be implemented in schools across the state for the 2017-2018 school year.
Parents should be concerned about whether these standards are age-appropriate, as well as whether the manner in which these topics will be taught may undermine their values.

Sign our petition to request that OSPI modify the 2017-18 Health and Physical Education Standards, and to request that OSPI respect the wishes of parents and taxpayers by removing these controversial topics from the elementary school curriculum standards once and for all.
Once this petition reaches 10,000 signatures, it will be presented to OSPI and members of the Washington State Legislature.
