Gov Dunleavy’s newly proposed legislation (Senate Bill 96 and House Bill 105) is a long overdue step towards protecting our kids in the public school system and the rights of their parents. 

In the last several years, the schools have acted as though the moment children step through a school’s doors, they become property of the state rather than somebody’s son or daughter.

Once inside, it’s like a secret society that parents cannot enter. Porno books in the library, abortion information, pronoun and name changes and LGBTQ promotion and clubs – which means that if someone’s child is invited to one of these clubs and chooses not to join, they are labeled a “hater.”

There’s also sex-ed classes, which can go in any direction since no parents are there to supervise. And let’s not forget the opportunity for OCS to pop in and take any kid aside privately to ask personal questions about their family and home life.

Many legislators will claim this is all for the child’s safety, as if they are “saving” kids from their own parents who have raised, trained, fed, sacrificed for and cured them of ailments throughout their lives, even in the womb.

How can there be enough employees if people can’t have children because they are having sex with the same gender or popping the morning-after abortion pills?

Since when did schools become the child police? When was it their job to “save” our kids from us? 

I won’t deny that there has been a small percentage of abused kids that were saved through public schools encouraging them to speak out about inappropriate and dangerous events happening in their homes, and I appreciate positive intervention, but that’s a far cry from the indoctrination, OCS’s “private talks” and public pressure that happens now.

I’m all about funding education, but I want to see kids excited about good grades, science fair projects, a robot they built, or a test they passed. My third daughter loved her school, and she had a wonderful experience – learning and making lifelong memories. That’s what school should be – learning, growing and making those positive memories. But things have changed in many schools.

Now, my youngest daughter could lose the name given to her by her dad so that she can “become a boy.” She could even be so sucked into this mentality through school social pressures that she might want cross-sex drugs and irreversible surgeries, even though she’s way too young to make a lifelong decision like that. More and more of the kids who took those drugs or submitted to surgeries are having regrets.

Lastly, we need to keep in mind that this it’s our job as adults to protect kids.

Promoting the LGBTQ lifestyle and abortion education leads to a declining the population. But all the news we keep hearing about lately is how there aren’t enough employees anymore. 

How can there be enough employees if people can’t have children because they are having sex with the same gender or popping the morning-after abortion pills?

We will NEVER have enough employees if the goal is to promote sex-without-live-births through so-called “Comprehensive Sex Education” policy. This type of training and manipulation is only successful through the schools because they have a captive audience without parents’ stepping in to stop it. 

It’s all in the name of “safety and freedom.” Boy, can those words get misused! 

Back to Dunleavy’s bill. It shatters this manipulation and power over our kids. Many in our State Senate oppose it for one reason or another, but we need this bill in order to sustain our schools. 

Unless parental rights are restored and kids are protected from this LGBTQ agenda, schools are not going to get the kids they need and therefore they will have a hard time convincing legislators for more funding.

Dunleavy’s proposal will help the schools, restore the proper balance of parental involvement, and protect the kids from plans that go out of the boundaries of basic academics, which is the true role of the school.

Unfortunately, many in the State Senate are fighting this bill. If we do not start writing and calling them in large numbers, it will just sit in committee and the vicious cycle will continue.

Lastly, we need to keep in mind that this it’s our job as adults to protect kids. Without our help, we can’t expect our kids to navigate the day-to-day school pressures of trying to fit in within the walls of their forced society. If we want them to do that we think is right, it’s our job to ensure that they are either homeschooled, private schooled, or in a public school environment that doesn’t lead them to sex and abortions. Schools should teach math, reading, writing, the sciences and history. Parents must take responsibility to protect their innocence and allow them to learn apart from agendas and indoctrination.

Please support SB 96 and HB 105 by contacting legislators and asking them to pass this bill.

    Yes he is -thank you Gov. Dunleavy a job well done. Someone has to be the voice for our children when I backs are turned.

    • DaveMaxwell says:

      The title “if there ever was a time to support dunleavy the time is now “
      We have the problems we are being overwhelmed with because of any support for dunleavy! We are suffering buyers remorse!

    It’s all part of the UN’s depopulation measures see UN Agenda 21/30!

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Exactly. So many people want to pretend that this is not happening though! We still have a ways to go for the Great Awakening! Pray!

  • Barb Melland says:

    Thank you Gov. Dunleavy !!!
    I do not always agree with you, but on this issue of protecting our children and parental rights, I support you 1,000%. Our schools should be a place of learning, not a place of indoctrination.
    Abysmal student scores should be the focus of educators, but continuing failure to address academic student improvement is shameful.
    And academia can stop blaming covid and using that for an excuse for failures, as academic decline has been a decades long issue in Alaska.

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    Why are you great full for what has already been given to the parents, yes I said parents! They are already in the front of the line regarding their children! We don’t need Dunleavy to arrange that! If people are so dumbfounded that they don’t get this, then please hand me the title to your vehicle! I’m taking it until you talk Dunleavy into writing a bill to give it back to you !! This thinking 1/2” deep into issues that are yours to begin with,is a result of stupid non critical thinking skills gained from public schools!

  • ML Moore says:

    I believe this is what Dave Maxwell is trying to state. Correct me if I’m wrong.
    14th Amendment say about parental rights?
    More recently, the Supreme Court declared in Washington v. Glucksberg, 521 U.S. 702 (1997), that the Constitution, and specifically the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, protects the fundamental right of parents to direct the care, upbringing, and education of their children.

    Further, what are the 9th Amendment parental rights?
    The Amendment
    The parental right to direct education includes the right to choose, as an alternative to public education, private, religious, or home schools, and the right to make reasonable choices within public schools for one’s child.
    I support the Governors, Bills to reinforce at the State level what is already been addressed at the Federal level.

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    I believe I am clear and concise mr Moore! Dunleavy has bowed his head as a middle of the road, weak, and scared punk who has been equipped with power!
    Under his purview children are presently being abused in the system he oversees! It’s outrageous that he as our governor has acquiesced to our lawless society as well!

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    Impeachment Mike Dunleavy

  • LacretiaBallance says:

    If a mayor can do it, why not a governor?
    “‘Essentially child pornography’: Ohio mayor asks school board to resign over racy writing assignments
    “I’m going to give you a simple choice: either choose to resign from this Board of Education or you will be charged,” Hudson Mayor Craig Shubert said.”

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    Lacretia , fabulous observation and questions! Why can’t the governor do anything? Why are the people not expecting him to do anything? I’m tired of the demboski chalkboard voice pleas to get parents “involved “! Involvement that now has proven to do nothing more than waste time and resources! I implore demboski to use his/her obnoxious voice to irritate the leftist harassment and stop hiding dunleavy behind her substantial caboose!
