The Alaska Watchman recently published an article which directly names some of the teachers, principals and librarians who support providing graphic gay sex books to students in the Anchorage School District.

There has been some concern over the fact that the Watchman published the names, titles and contact information of these educators. Some claim that the problem is systemic, and much larger than any one specific teacher or administrator, and that calling out individuals deflects attention from school board members who are leading this effort.

We agree wholeheartedly that the problem is systemic, meaning it reaches into all levels of the school district. In fact, the school board alone – even if it were so inclined – cannot address this problem without calling to account the scores of teachers, librarians, principals and administrators who are on board with promoting graphic and obscene sex books.

Those who use their power – at whatever level – to order, promote and disseminate this filth to our children need to be known. They are agents of our local government, and as such have an obligation to do their work in the full light of day.

If highlighting their innerworkings is uncomfortable, then so be it. They work for parents.

Unfortunately, many of those who are employed in the layered levels of school bureaucracy stake out little “kingdoms” where they quietly tweak curriculum, order books, develop programs and significantly influence the climate of our schools, all outside the spotlight. That must change.

On a final note, there is a great degree of accountability that comes via parents whose children attend these schools. In fact, this is often the most effective means of addressing controversy – parents bringing concerns directly to those who make lower level decisions. Moms and dads cannot have these discussions if they never know who these people are.

    It’s a good thing you have done here. Bring forth those names and positions. Now that being said, we need to stop the teachers,school board and principals from doing this to our children. We also need to stop the arresting of the parents when they speak up at a meeting with these school members. The child and their education falls on the parents shoulders. If a parent can go to a meeting and voice tgeir opinion why have the meeting? This is a school training facility not a dictatorship and parents need to be able to voice without fear of arrest their opinions. All this WOKE, LGBTQ+, AND Cridical race crap needs to go. We have no time or place for it in our schools. We’re on the bottom of the polls for reading, writing and arithmetic. I say it’s time parents have a say again and a BIG change in how we are teaching in our schools. After that big change from top down we the people MIGHT consider the $250 million increase the school are looking for. We’re getting fewer children and not much food for the kids. What/Who is going to line their pockets this time with all that money. I say no more money till we see some bang for our buck!

  • Richard Eide says:

    Having worked in public schools for many years, I can’t tell you the number of teachers who quietly influence their students, knowingly, against the parents’ beliefs. Staff and admin. quake at the thought, “If this gets out… .”

  • Ruth Ewig says:

    Richard is correct. If the people remain unnamed it is hard to pinpoint the problem. Evil works in darkness, in hiding,, while truth works in the Light. If the educators are modeling good citizen behavior then that is what the students learn and what parents and the communities will trust. The unions are bringing in this predatory propaganda to the eduators and students without parental knowledge or permission. The educators are doing this either without thought or with intentions to further corrupt America’s traditional families and those virtues when practiced raise up good citizens who contribute to the community not tear it down.
    When there is a problem, the first question is “where is this coming from?” “Who is stirring this up?” Who is the source of this trash? If we know the “players” then we can directly address them, hoping they will apologize and change. If not, our next recourse is to go up the chain of accountability. We can get to the bottom and hopefully the system is working to correct the problem.
    The bottom line for Alaskans is to get the money out of the bureaucrats in charge of government schools into the hands of parents through some means, such as School Choice. The free market model encourages incentives to do good and right.

  • Joe Drayton says:

    Recall the definition of a government worker,
    “ someone who makes a decision that has no outcome on their salary’ “.
    Therefore Post the names of the radical educators operating outside of the mainstream on billboards, on radio talk shows, and everywhere on electronic media. The biggest fear of these pervert cowards have is the light of day. The Government does not have the right of silence, these jerks need to explain themselves or have their supervisors explain why they are allowed to promote and encourage the “Crazy Agenda” of the woke left. Parents need to scream for accountability.

  • Dee Cee says:

    I’m glad I got the name of Carol Bartholomew. As I pointed out previously, I already became familiar with her particular disdain for devoted Christians and Catholics during the two weeks my son was in Polaris. It took no more than this amount of time for me to realize something very evil was going on in there. We left. But to have that instinct confirmed feels pretty good!

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    I agree that names need to be named. Probably (more than likely) these people are just the top of the bucket. I don’t feel ill will towards these people, but I sure feel concern about them being able to continue. I hope that the parents of the children being affected by these people can now more readily identify any concerning issues that their children might be having. Parents have a responsibility to know what is happening in their children’s lives so that they can protect their children and teach them between right and wrong. This is shameful that we have adults teaching and/or doing things to our children that go against what we wish and are trying to hide it from we parents. Personally, I would be pulling my children out of the public school system until this all gets straightened out because who knows what could be happening in the meanwhile!

  • Diana says:

    There are laws on the books against such things and people as this. This is a very narrow conduit of sewer rats that have bypassed our nation’s laws, psychological assessments of children subjected to these things, and the destruction that it causes to young lives for years to come.
    Arrest the bastards for child sexual abuse and make sure they get on watch lists so that they’re not hired when they get out.
    What is child sexual abuse?
    FACT: The definition of child sexual abuse is broader than most people realize.
    Often a traumatic experience for children and teens, child sexual abuse is a criminal offense punishable
    by law .
    Child sexual abuse includes:
    • any sexual act between an adult and a minor, or between two minors, when one exerts power over the other.
    • non-contact acts such as exhibitionism, exposure to pornography, voyeurism, and communicating in a sexual
    • forcing, coercing or persuading a child to engage in any type of sexual act.
    . 70% of child sex offenders have between one and 9 victims, while 20% have 10 to 40 victims. (That’s a numerical description of the appetite for more and more victims….our children….a captive audience)
    • Sexual assaults on children are most likely to occur at 8 a.m., 12 p.m. and between 3 and 4 p.m. (School hours)
    FACT: Abusers often form relationships with potential victims and their families prior to the abuse. This is called “grooming.”
    Grooming is a process by which an offender gradually draws a victim into a sexual relationship and maintains that relationship in secrecy. At the same time, the offender may also fill roles within the victim’s family that make the offender trusted and valued.
    Grooming behaviors can include:
    • Special attention, outings, and gifts
    • Isolating the child from others
    • Filling the child’s unmet needs
    • Filling needs and roles within the family
    • Treating the child as if he or she is older
    • Gradually crossing physical boundaries, and becoming increasingly intimate/sexual
    • Use of secrecy, blame, and threats to maintain control. (As in keeping this from parents and who knows what else they say in conjunction with the books.)
    These are nationally honored definitions and warnings. These slugs of society are a minority. What should we do about it? Report this suspected child abuse. Call the police and have them arrested. Thankfully we know their names. Thanks Watchman for getting the emails where they confessed. I couldn’t find them on watchlists that are available but there’s always a first time.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Diana, good comments! Up here, I wonder if these pedos would even get arrested or would they get arrested and be let out immediately. Alaska is going down hill fast with Anchorage leading the way unfortunately.

  • Diana says:

    Have I been moderated and approved yet?

  • Mary Dyer says:

    Davidson is going to have blood on ho hands, good thing the FBI is watching.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Mary, quit with the fear-mongering. People are waking up to the fact that the evil uses threats to get people to do what they want them to do. It is not going to work because the truth needs to come out. Our loving Heavenly Father has told us not to be fearful because man may be able to destroy our body, but our soul belongs to our Almighty Creator. Let the truth be spoken because Almighty God wins in the end and he is who we obey.

    • Tamra Nygaard says:

      Don’t be ridiculous. Leftists always scream that conservatives are somehow “violent” by calling out miscreants, all while leftists burn down cities and attack politicians with deadly force. Get over your bad self.
      And if you are intellectually honest, you will admit that encouraging children to engage in homosexual sex is violence at it’s worst. And don’t even go there on the topic of “transitioning” by encouraging children to cut off perfectly normal body parts and take harmful doses of hormones all in thrall to the “transgender” community. Mental health is a serious issue among leftists. It leads to actual blood on the hands of the perpetrators, and none of them are conservatives.

    • Yetitrax says:

      Who cares who’s watching? What they’re doing should be criminal, and parents should be allowed to know the individual’s that have direct access to their children. Just talking about the problem and going to and complaining at a board meeting isn’t going to help resolve it. But, a parent or many parents directly having access to the names and calling specific individuals out may make a difference.
      Personally I support the Watchman for having the courage to take this step. You have my respect.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Fear mongering Mary! The truth wins in the end.

    • DaveMaxwell says:

      Wow please help Mary find her meds

  • MW says:

    As a past educator in both private and public school settings, everything I did had to be fully transparent. There’s a reason for that transparency in a scholastic setting with minors involved. I applaud Alaska Watchman for setting the stage for transparency. The only people who have issues with transparency in the education sector are the ones who are hiding something.

  • Diana H. Graf says:

    There are laws against these things. This is child sexual abuse. Child sexual abuse is a traumatic experience for children and teens; child sexual abuse is a criminal offense punishable by law; child sexual abuse includes:
    1. Any sexual act between an adult and a minor, or between two minors, when one exerts power over the other as in the power of a teacher and an administrator; 2. forcing, coercing or persuading a child to engage in any type of sexual act; and, 3. non-contact acts such as exhibitionism, exposure to pornography, voyeurism, and communicating in a sexual manner. These are what books like this are in a classroom in the hands of teachers who read them aloud.

    • DaveMaxwell says:

      Mary how does finding humanity make any sense in the context of the above discussion? The way God designed man and woman (the list stops there) is all the evidence you need! You Mary may in fact not so much need your meds but instead open your eyes to the reality of God and His design!!!
