Is Kevin Jennings Good for America?

In a word, no. And Glenn Beck is one of a few people willing to point this out.

Yet another controversial Obama-administration appointee, Kevin Jennings, is in the national spotlight. Much has been made about Jennings' troubling actions and statements in the past. However, parents don't need to look that far back to understand the radical policies that Jennings would like to enact today in our nation's public schools.

Also under Jennings' direction, GLSEN has used the "safe school" mantra to push a one-sided agenda into schools [click to read] that has no 'tolerance' for socially conservative and Christian viewpoints—and that promotes gender confusion [click to read].

Most of us would support a policy of teaching mutual respect for people with different viewpoints without an underlying message that "your viewpoint is wrong" being inferred. I do not think schools need to promote 'alternative' ideas about sexuality at all, but Mr. Jennings, if this were his mindset, would not be bashing Young Life and writing lesson plans that seek to override parental influences.
