The Fairbanks School Board is scheduled to vote on a resolution that encourages educators to promote and celebrate LGBTQ sexuality among all grade levels throughout the month of October.

Set for a vote at the Sept. 6 school board meeting, the proposal specifically highlights the work of LGBTQ activists, noting that the “LGBTQ community is a growing asset to the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District as students, staff members, and parents.”

It also states that Fairbanks schools strive to have students “acknowledge the history, culture and contributions of LGBTQ individuals, role models, and historical events from across the country and community.”

 The resolution claims that Fairbanks schools are a role model for inclusion and equity, and that by promoting LGBTQ History month the district aims to “expose the prejudice and discrimination that LGBTQ people face based on sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, and to celebrate their diversity and accomplishments from a source of empowerment and engagement.”

The latest resolution comes as the Fairbanks School Board has doubled down on promoting LGBTQ literature, explicit sex education and transgender policies throughout the district. This has led a growing number of parents to opt for homeschooling or private education.

  • James says:

    The Alaska public schools are among the worst in the country on this nonsense. Public school in general needs to be completely defunded; government clearly can’t be trusted to educate our kids. Let the woke crowd start their own private schools if they want.

  • believer says:

    Fairbanks better get a firm conservative grip. The school board is out out of control. These people are in the minority in their beliefs. When they are paying the majority of the school tax’s maybe the way they want to have it can be talked about again.

  • Marianne says:

    We need to stand up for our majority values or this minority voice is going to take over our state and country. Stand up and speak out Americans (which means to be “salty”) who support America as stated in our Constitution and by our Founding Fathers. We are, of course, in a battle for godliness in our Country, otherwise, chaos will ensue. May God help our state and our Country!

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    noting that the “LGBTQ community is a growing asset to the Fairbanks North Star Borough School
    Why is the LGBTQ an asset to Fairbanks. To start grooming your children? Disgusting, sick

    expose the prejudice and discrimination that LGBTQ people face based on sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, and to celebrate their diversity and accomplishments from a source of empowerment and engagement.”
    If you put the hard work in at your job, your rewarded. Not because your LGBTQ, get off your high horse live like a normal people work hard at what you do. I don’t give a Blank, I don’t care who you hang out with. Just Shut Up and stop pushing your sinful lifestyle.
    Last thing you’re a man and only a man or your a woman and only a woman. stop hurting yourself and others, with all these lie’s.

    • Gunter Thompson says:

      The vast majority of sexual crimes against anyone are done by heterosexuals. Focus your anger on those perpetrators (like the Catholics and the Baptists). Your fear and your ignorance yields poor decisions.

  • Lobo says:

    Indoctrinations in the schools started a long time ago, but it wasn’t anywhere as bad as today.. It has been a plan in progress, and it’s facilitation actually took a firm foothold when the states agreed to accept federal funding for the schools back in the 50s… I believe around 1954… Once they agreed to “take “FREE” the money”, they also agreed to allow the federal government to interfere in, and demand how, and what is taught to your children.. What used to be a state’s education system became a federal government, and NEA indoctrination establishment.

  • Gunter Thompson says:

    Joel: love is love. And a good thing yes?

    • she/him says:

      Love is willing the good of the other. Love is not blindly excepting unhealthy sexual practices and carving up prepubescent children.

      • Gunter Thompson says:

        Interesting conditions you’ve placed on Love. What other conditions might we entertain? Love is only for male female relationships? Love is love only if it yields offspring and maybe just white Christian children? How about interracial love – OK with you?

  • Steve says:

    One hour time limit??? The public only get 1 hour to voice its creed. So four, maybe three people get to talk. Something really stinks here and I think it’s the Fairbanks School Board. Is this really what the taxpayers in Fairbanks want to pursue?

    • she/him says:

      Gunter Thompson, certain “conditions” are already inherent to the essence of love. If you are hurting the other person it cannot possibly be love. That being said there are many appropriate expressions of love. It all boils down to your “office” in regard to the other person. If you are a child’s parent a certain sort of love is expected–other kinds are expressly not accepted. In conclusion i didn’t make the conditions and your straw manning of my original position with your outrageous claims is fallacious to say the least.

    • Sue says:

      3 minute testimony…that’s 20 people.

  • Teresa says:

    This needs to stop! Leave OTHER people’s children alone!

  • David Halbrook says:

    Thanks for the information and links. I will write the school board. Its hard to justify sitting 2-3 hours in order to speak for 2 minutes, so I hope an email means something. And I’ll pray (1 Timothy 2:1-2)

  • Mrs Vic says:

    Yank your kids out of this indoctrination garbage. Hit them where it hurts…. Parents protect your children.
    The only thing they understand is when the money leaves, because their numbers are down. The corrupts ears are closed and
    They don’t give a damn about our children. They only care about

  • David Halbrook says:

    I attended the Fairbanks school board meeting via Zoom last night. It further opened my eyes. These board members are elected, and I don’t think they’ve hidden their values. On that basis, my conclusion is that spiritually and/or socially conservative people in this area are vastly outnumbered. I could be wrong, but that’s my perception after last night. That saddens but doesn’t discourage me. There’s work to do in my heart and home IF I’m correct that the current mindset is the majority and is growing.
