  • Two families pulled their children out of Stetson Middle School in West Chester, Pennsylvania after pictures of drag queens were displayed in classrooms to celebrate Pride Month.
  • “They set up a drag queen comedian. So if you are a child, what do you do? You youtube it, right? Search it on Google. It’s super hot. He’s a drag queen comedian. Every other word is a four-letter word, talking about heroin and threesomes,” Jim Jacobs, father of an 11-year-old in middle school, told DCNF.
  • The school district promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion resources, including Ibrahim X. Kendi’s “How To Be Anti-Racist” on its website.

Two families have removed their children from a school district in West Chester, Pennsylvania due to “woke indoctrination”, according to documents obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Stetson Middle School in West Chester, Pennsylvania, posted photos of drag queens and LGBTQ activists on the walls of 7th graders’ classrooms as part of Pride Month, according to documents obtained by DCNF. Jim Jacobs, father of an 11-year-old at school, and Jacobs’ brother pulled their children out of school after learning about Pride Month activities, Jacobs told DCNF.

Classrooms featured a Pride flag on the wall with pictures of Bianca Del Rio, a drag queen, Marsha P. Johnson, an LGBTQ and drag queen activist, and Audre Lorde, an activist who focused on ” injustices of racism, sexism, classism and homophobia,” show documents obtained by the DCNF. Other posters included Harvey Milk, the first California public servant to be an openly gay man, and Elliot Page, a transgender actor.

Everyone’s photos included QR codes with links and students were encouraged to take same-sex photos in front of the pride flag, Jacobs told DCNF.

“They set up a drag queen comedian. So if you are a child, what do you do? You youtube it, right? Search it on Google. It’s super hot. He’s a drag queen comedian. Every other word is a four-letter word, talking about heroin and threesomes. Why should millennials be exposed to this? It’s on the wall to follow these people. I have it on YouTube and in 10 seconds it’s trash out. Not historical figures,” Jacobs told DCNF.

Stetson Middle School is part of the West Chester Area School District which has an equity resource page providing resources for teachers including a list of recommended books on diversity, equity and inclusion and lesson plans for LGBTQ inclusion in the classroom, according to the website. Parents and adults also receive recommended resources such as videos called “Be Boldly Anti-Racist” and the book “How To Be Anti-Racist” by Ibrahim X. Kendi.

For a class project, students were able to choose from four books, George, a story about a transgender girl, Ghost Boys, a novel about a black boy killed by a police officer, House Arrest, a story about a child under house arrest with a probation officer and City of Ember, a book about a post-apocalyptic city filled with corruption, according to a letter from Superintendent Bob Sokolowski obtained by DCNF.

“My eyes are opening, it’s really indoctrination. We live in Philadelphia and none of my kids in public school have ever taken a bus trip to the Constitution Center,” Jacobs told DCNF .

Jacobs’ son wore an American flag and a Blue Lives Matter flag as a cape one day at school after seeing students wearing Pride flags as capes, but was told to remove it and put it in his locker, Jacobs told DCNF.

“I don’t want to transfer my student 4.0 in three years but I am, I have no choice,” Jacobs told DCNF.

The Sokolowski and Stetson college did not immediately respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.
