My wife is a school counselor. The State scolded her last week for not counseling kids in perversion training. She is 4 days from retirement and can't get away from it too soon. We live in a conservative state and a tiny minority believe in this foolishness. But the Feds hold money over a state's head and force the warped agenda.
I suspected that, but you are the first person I've heard with inside information. Is there anything else to add about that?
The federal Department of Education IS the enemy. They have the entire country's school systems in the palm of their hands and it revolves around money. If you do not do it their way they cut you off. Keep in mind that 99% of school administrators are liberal. Very liberal.
The fed throws tax dollars for this that and the other grants to local jurisdictions and they take the bait. I see that it happens in the schools as you described too.
Someone described how a high school girl was dumped by her boyfriend and depressed. She went to the guidance counselor and she was pressured about becoming a lesbian. The girl did the right thing and said no, then told her parents.
This has gotten out of hand.
