CLASSROOM CONFUSION: Dem Gov Says Gender Identity Not Taught —His Edu. Dept. Says it Is, Then Edits Site?

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.07.22

Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont (D) says gender ideology and gender identity instruction “doesn’t, and it shouldn’t” happen in the Constitution State, contradicting his own education department which says it does happen.

The contradiction also led to allegations of a stealth edit to the Connecticut Education Department’s “Healthy and Balanced Living Curriculum Framework.” One watchdog group accused the department of making changes in the wake of the governor’s comments at a recent debate.

From Fox News:

Education nonprofit Parents Defending Education accused the department of stealthily changing its website to reflect the governor’s comments in the wake of the debate.

The education watchdog noted that the changes came from May of this year but said “the link was broken just hours after the debate and that is driving some of the questions and doubt.”

Eric Scoville, spokesperson for the Connecticut Department of Education, pushed back on the accusations, telling Fox News Digital the changes came from May 2022 and no other changes have been made since then.

The state department includes gender identity instruction in its framework for sixth- through eighth-graders, even though Lamont said in the debate the state does not.

“Define and explain differences between cisgender, transgender, gender nonbinary, gender expansive, and gender identity,” the updated framework instructs teachers of the age group.

“Differentiate between sexual orientation, sexual behavior, and sexual identity,” the updated framework for ninth- through 12th-graders reads.
