DISPATCHES FROM THE EDUCATION APOCALYPSE: “Public schools are reopening for business across America, meaning it’s time to get  back to reading, writing, arithmetic….and revolution. As usual in matters such as these, California is leading the way. On the first day of classes at Denair Middle School near Modesto science teacher Luis Davila Alvarado handed out worksheets from a transgender advocacy group titled ‘The Gender Unicorn’ asking students about their ‘gender identity,’ ‘gender expression,’ and their sexual and emotional attractions. These are children. And yet the teacher did not ask permission to hand this out. Most parents were outraged. The school estimated about 50 children received the worksheet. It turns out Alvarado was educating the children about his own life. He declared he rejects the term ‘Mr.’ and prefers to be addressed with the newfangled ‘Mx.,’ pronounced ‘Mix.’ A school official quickly put a stop to it, but the damage was done.”
