NYC private schools introduce ‘sexuality curriculum’ in kindergarten
Elite private schools in New York City are implementing gender-identity programs and sexuality curriculums for students as young as four and five years old, according to The New York Post. The publication found that some of the city’s top private schools, such as Dalton School, are even asking about a child’s gender identity and preferred pronouns on their kindergarten admissions applications. One education consultant told The Post that this move is part of a broader effort to sexualize younger and younger children. Leftist nonprofits and corporate interests are among those pushing gender ideology on young children, according to Jay Richards, a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation. Critics argue that this is part of a “radical ideology of expressive individualism” and that schools are putting financial interests ahead of the well-being of their students.

Sexuality Curriculum Now Included in Kindergarten Education at NYC Private Schools
Elite New York prep schools are introducing gender identity and sexuality curriculums to students as young as four and five, according to an investigation by The New York Post. Schools such as Dalton ask about gender identity and preferred pronouns on their kindergarten admissions applications, with critics claiming that these practices transform children into sexual beings from an early age. The move has been labelled part of a broader effort to sexualise children. The Human Rights Campaign and the American Civil Liberties Union are two organisations promoting the ideology of expressive individualism and pushing gender ideology in young children. Critics claim the pharmaceutical industry has vested interests in the area, with drug companies benefiting from puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones. The schools reportedly charge tuition fees of over $60,000 per year.
