In recent days numerous news outlets have reported on the gender identity instruction outlined in the new Blueprint. This instruction will be implemented this fall by the Maryland Department of Education for our youngest of children with NO OPT OUT CURRENTLY.

Unfortunately we are fighting a radicalized left wing MSDE along with the teachers union MSEA that have a huge interest in taking away parental and local official control here in Carroll County.
As of July 3, 2022 MSEA has spent $444,000 in Apple Ballot mailers and other media marketing and still has 1.9 million dollars on hand to elect Dr. Dorsey, Amanda Jozkowski and Tom Scanlan, the Apple Candidates, to our Board of Education. All three have voiced full support of the Blueprint and consider themselves “agents of the state”, who will work with them to turn the amazing Carroll County Public School system into the declining systems in Howard, Anne Arundel and Montgomery counties.

But we as Carroll Parents can fight to save our children!! We must elect Tara Battaglia, Jim Miller and Steve Whistler, BMW, in order to keep CCPS the envy of school systems in the state and focused on kids, teachers and academics. NOT social justice agendas!

Please consider making a donation to help elect BMW at www.carrollunited.com. If everyone in the group donated at least $20 we could raise $34,000! Your financial support could make a huge difference! You can also find many ways to volunteer and get involved! Join the Movement!

In the words of Jim Miller, candidate for Carroll County Board of Education….”I simply do not believe I give up my rights as a parent when my child walks into a school.”

Once again, the Carroll County Times gets it wrong. Here's the statement released from CCPS correcting the false article:

In the Sunday, June 12, edition of the Carroll County Times, it was incorrectly stated that “Carroll County’s Board of Education unanimously approved the state’s new health curriculum framework, which includes instruction on gender identity, for high school students at its Wednesday meeting.”

At this meeting, the Board of Education did approve the Family Life Advisory Council (FLAC) Opt-Out Indicators for the Family Life Unit for Health I and Health II for high school. This means parents who wish to opt out of the Family Life Indicators in the state framework will have the opportunity to choose the alternative Family Life Indicators as amended by the FLAC.

Parents and guardians may exercise their right to “opt out” of the option to enroll their students in either (a) the alternative learning activities and assessments in health education in accordance with the standards proposed by the FLAC, or (b) other alternative learning activities and assessments meeting the minimum requirements of state law.

We want to thank the Board of Education for passing the flag policy that bans political symbols from the classroom. This debate was never about the LGBTQIA+ flag. This has been about ensuring the school environment remains welcoming to all students regardless of their identity.

Lastly, we thank the Family Life Committee (FLC) for bringing forward an alternative sex education framework that gives parents an option that focuses on healthy relationships and biology in place of radical gender identity and inappropriate sexual content. This important work, which was also approved by the board, will benefit thousands of students and families across the county.

Let’s celebrate the wins for our children, but our work is not done. We still want to see the FLC curriculum become the default standard for our county. And, more importantly, we need to vote BMW for BOE so that this important work continues.

It’s time to put an end to Carroll County Commissioner Dennis Frazier’s political career.

Last week was a busy week for Frazier, also Republican candidate for State Delegate, who decided to obstruct public school affairs to further union interests, all at the expense of our children and teachers. As you can see from the screenshots, Frazier, a former teacher and union member, actively colludes with school administrators and CCPS Parents for “Honest” Education members on a private union-led social media group to plot his attacks against Tara Battaglia and the Board of Education. Quite ironic considering Frazier accused the board of using social media to pick favorites for the community-represented Family Life committee.

In the last week alone, Frazier…

• ATTACKED Battaglia, mom and BOE member, for steps the board took to publicly form a parent-led committee that shapes health and sex education curriculum. Why? He’d prefer education work behind closed doors during a time when the MSDE are mandating CRT, gender confusion and inappropriate sex-ed into children’s curriculum.
• OPPOSED the flag policy that would have made the county, state, and American flags the official flags to be displayed in CCPS classrooms. Frazier also strongly supported the school-led distribution of transgender-pride flags to K thru 12 students. This was in direct conflict with the community’s demand to keep political and social justice causes out of the classroom.
• BLOCKED the revised sex education framework that would have prevented state mandated gender identity topics being taught to pre-K children and anal penetration to middle schoolers. Apparently, Frazier is completely fine with grooming our children in exchange for union votes.

This is the same Dennis Frazier who berated the BOE for being the first in Maryland to open public schools during the pandemic - all while holding a position at a private school that had already been open for months. The hypocrisy runs deep with this Commissioner.

Write to Frazier and his counterpart Commissioner Board President Ed Rothstein to demand that they support Tara Battaglia and the Board of Education in their efforts to protect our children and parental rights. Tell them to fund our schools, support parent involved education, and demand they reverse their position on gender identity and inappropriate sex education in public schools.

The America Library Association picks a self-proclaimed Marxist as their president. Emily Drabinski, who is endorsed by the teacher’s union, is a “Marxist lesbian” who believes “collective power” should be wielded in libraries for a ”better world”.

Once again, this an overt attempt by the teacher’s union to insert political agendas into the school system.

It’s time for parents to step in! We ask the Carroll County Board of Education create a community-led library committee that will ensure books remain school and age appropriate. This is not “book banning”, this is to protect our children from literal Marxists who want to shape our children to their world view.

Please write to the BOE today and ask for this committee to be formed!

In February's CCPS Board of Education meeting, an AP Physics teacher and proud teacher's union member described his class as "all male, and all white" and that this was a "problem".

Why are these students faulted for their skin color? This is what CRT, also known as Equity and Inclusion, looks like in practice. No group of students should ever be described as a "problem" based on their race or gender. Ever. We need to return to treating our students as unique individuals, encouraged to maximize their individual potential.

In light of the pride flag controversy I wanted to share this video. So much can be said about this clip from Dave Rubin and his comments about the Joe Rogan-Bill Maher episode about c*vid.

1. Dave Rubin is a successful podcaster and tech entrepreneur who evolved from a left leaning liberal to conservative. He is gay (who cares?!?) but doesn’t make it his sole identity. I (Bryan) listen to him daily, and I didn’t need a pride flag in my classroom growing up to do this, I just learned to treat people with respect regardless of your sex/gender/race.

2. He talks about the exchange between Joe Rogan (a Bernie supporter) and Bill Maher (a liberal in the classic sense) and how there’s general agreement that we should question our institutions when something doesn’t add up. All things we as Americans can all agree on.

We need to come together for our kids, and elevate all students and show them that they too can be successful regardless of their circumstance. The history of our country proves that.

We need to stop placing so much on our school system. Let teachers teach, let parents parent.

Have you ever been curious about what the priorities of the teacher's union are? See for yourself. Their priority isn't closing the education gap created from the pandemic response, or even improving our children's reading/writing/arithmetic scores.

Instead, the union continues to double-down on social justice and racial/gender identity politics. Their priorities are to create "safe spaces" based on your child's sexual orientation, lowering standards for all students to create "equitable" outcomes by race, and turning "bystanders" into social justice activists.

Enough already! Teachers and parents are tired of this unhealthy obsession with race and gender and want a returned focus on making our children smart and academically competitive on the world stage.

As many of you know, Concerned Parents and Moms for Liberty are making some headlines again. Since many of our members were so kind to support “Operation Shoe Drop,” we thought it was only fitting to finally get some “HONEST” facts to our community. This is lengthy but worth it for those that are following the buzz. So let’s get back to beginning… Remember when our elected BOE was forced to mask our children by an over-reaching MD BOE last September? As the events unfolded, the parents in our community came to the stark realization that we were being stripped of our parental rights. In November, M4L and CPOCC leaders met to discuss a plan for getting our kids unmasked. “Operation Shoe Drop” had been in the news recently in towns across the country and we decided to bring it to Carroll County (see pic #1). M4L and CPOCC were actively promoting the shoe drop on social media (pic #2). We were energized and inspired as the shoe donations poured in…collecting over 350 pairs of shoes (pic #3). Our plan had always been to place them on the steps of the MDBOE, however 8 very nice Capital Police Officers explained that this would not be possible due to the rally the next day. The officers were kind enough to let us display the shoes and take pictures but suggested that we move them to another location to allow for the rally to take place (pic #4). At this time, the 4 of us put our heads together and made the executive decision to follow all ACLU protest guidelines (pic #5 and #6) and take the shoes to the CC BOE building in Westminster. Our reasoning was simple. M4L wanted to urge our BOE to take action against the gross over reach of power by the MD BOE. It was January and our children were facing another COMAR rule that would keep them masked until the end of the school year!!!! We were certain that if “OUR” BOE could see the display of shoes, they would understand the outcry from the students in CC and they would not be ignored. We arrived around 9:30pm (check out time on incident report) and laid the shoes in a neat fashion on the front lawn (pic #7) following all ACLU guidelines about avoiding walkways, traffic, private property (BOE building is government property) and noise disturbances. After our experience in Annapolis we expected to be met with resistance from the Sheriff’s directly across the street. However we were pleasantly surprised when 2 separate Sheriffs drove by and waved while we were laying out shoes (Ask Curtis Pierce who reviewed the surveillance footage). The 4 of us (picture #8) never shielded our faces from the camera or hid our cars. Each vehicle was parked in the BOE parking lot in plain site. We left several signs explaining the reasoning for the shoes and we had a plan for the shoes to be picked up (pic #

Wyatt Sullivan, a CCPS student, spoke at last night's Board of Education meeting to talk about his experience with CRT in the classroom, where a teacher had Wyatt and other students fill out "privilege surveys" that scored students based on their race and gender (www.concernedparentsofccmd.com/2022/01/10/white-privilege-taught-in-ccps-boe-to-decide-on-policy-to-remove-political-indoctrination-from-classroom/).

Everyone in Carroll County can agree that our kids should be taught to be respectful to everyone and that racism has no place in our community. But having students take a CRT survey to score themselves and their peers based on their race and gender? The "solutions" to solving racism have gone too far, and like racism, CRT in schools needs to stop. This is not fair to Wyatt or any CCPS student to experience.

It took a lot of bravery for Wyatt to come forward and we sincerely appreciate his willingness to share this difficult experience.

From Bryan Thompson: Just a brief comment about my recent exchange with CCPS Parents for Honest Education, then I'd like to move on to things that will actually make a difference in our school system. I stand behind every word of the BOE speech they shared, and so does my Concerned Parents of Carroll County MD committee. I was banned and my response taken down from CCPS Parents for Honest Education because of "misinformation". I feel if they are going to share my speech, laced with their narrative, and if they are confident in their arguments, then they ought to let my comments remain posted and let people decide for themselves. Instead, they want to pretend they're the arbiter of "truth", when really they are afraid of opposing views. Is this their definition of "inclusion"? My response to CCPS Parents for Honest Education is below the dotted line. If you want your children to be taught that they should feel privileged or oppressed based on their race or gender, vote for Patricia Dorsey, Amanda Jozkowski, Tom Scanlan or Katie Speert. If you believe values should be instilled at home; if you want your children to learn that if they work hard to maximize their individual potential they can achieve anything, regardless of their race or gender, then I urge you to vote for Tara Battaglia, Jim Miller and Steve Whisler. And no, I don't have fake accounts. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks for sharing my speech. This post almost gets it right. It notes that CRT is a concept taught in law school. It’s more accurate to say that CRT **originated** in law school and has become entrenched in universities, corporations, and now K thru 12 schools. CRT has zero to do with how history is taught and has everything to do with racial identity politics. Never called by its true name, it sets our country backward, not forward. It is complex, nuanced, highly political, and pulls people apart that otherwise have a lot in common. And yes, CRT is right here in CCPS. Case in point: high school English teachers in our county have students fill out “scorecards” to determine how privileged or victimized they are in society based on race, gender, and socioeconomic status. There are so many more examples I could provide. The leaders of this page, along with the BOE candidates they endorse, call this “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” and want this taught in all classrooms. I ask every parent, grandparent and taxpaying citizen reading this: Is this how you want your children, our future generation, to be taught? Lastly, I find this statement quite revealing about the Honest page leaders: “School is where young people develop their understanding of empathy, social justice, respect, and equality.” In other words, school is where they send their kids to be parented and to become social justice warriors. I say: “HOME is where young people develop their understanding of empathy, justice, respect, and personal responsibility.” I leave everyone with this… If you

Update on the Carroll County BOE Mask Mandate Lawsuit: The state opened an internal investigation against CCPS for the misuse of public funds for their lawsuit.

Never mind that the state has zero legal grounds for their investigation. It is an obvious attempt by Superintendent Choudhury and the State BOE to intimidate our community. However, in response, Ed O'Meally, legal counsel to CCPS, has agreed to take the lawsuit pro-bono. The lawsuit will not cost our county a single dime; effectively invaliding the states' counter moves.

Mr. O'Meally, the citizens of Carroll County thank you for standing up for our kids!

Coalition of Maryland Parents (COMP) have filed a temporary restraining order and injunction to halt the school mask mandate. We're thrilled with this bold move by COMP and the 176 Maryland parents that support the lawsuit. Marylanders have woken up! It's time to return to normal!

Elizabeth Sullivan, a CCPS student, came to last night's Board of Education meeting to plead for an end to the school mask mandate. Her message was a powerful reminder of why a return to normal is so very important to our children. Parents across Carroll County commend students like Elizabeth for their bravery.

We thank our Carroll County Board of Education for standing by our children and for their bold action against state overreach. No more masks, no more insanity. Just normal.

Parents, we can no longer standby while we watch our kids continue to be forcefully muzzled. Governor Hogan has once again called for local school systems to take back control, and it's time the Carroll County Board of Education follows through.

We're asking parents to take 3 easy actions:

1. Click the link to send an email to state superintendent Choudhury, State Board and the Carroll County Board to demand we suspend the mandate.
2. Call the state superintendent and demand the mandate be removed. 410-767-0462
3. Come to the Carroll County BOE Meeting next Wed, February 9th to call for our BOE to take back local control.

Lawn Boy, a sexually explicit novel reported by a Winters Mill High School parent late last year, was ultimately pulled from bookshelves by superintendent Lockard after the book reconsideration committee met and voted to retain the book.

The book will be set aside and available to minors with parent permission.

A parent win and a common sense solution!

Concerned Parents firmly believes school choice would settle many of the debates we have as parents. Instead of battling over COVID policy, CRT, etc. - why not give us our tax dollars so we can choose where we send our kids?
