School allegedly forces girl, 11, into same bed with boy

One of Joe Biden's key agendas as president has been to promote the LGBT ideology, specifically transgenderism. So far he's worked at having literally every federal agency come alongside him in that work.

Joining him has been many in power in the education industry, from federal education officials to teachers' union officials to school managers.

They have faced pushback from parents who have said they have the right to know what's going on with their children in class, with what materials teachers are indoctrinating them, and more.

Now one school district has been caught trying to get away with … something.

The legal team at the ADF has taken action after an "11-year-old girl was supposed to share a bed with a male student on a school trip."

The ADF reported it has sent a letter to Jefferson County Public Schools in Colorado on behalf of the girl's parents, informing the district its policy of "hiding information from parents and lying to students is unconstitutional."

"Parents, not the government, have the right to direct the upbringing and education of their children, and that includes making informed decisions to protect their child’s privacy," lawyer Kate Anderson said in a statement from the organization.

"Schools should never hide information from parents, yet that’s exactly what JCPS officials did here. That put the Waileses’ 11-year-old daughter in a very challenging situation where she had to choose between sleeping in the same bed with a biological boy and advocating for her privacy in front of her teachers and peers.

"Understandably, the Wailes family is asking JCPS to cease its practice of intentionally withholding information about rooming accommodations from parents. Every parent should have the information needed to make the best decision for their children."

The report said the organization is representing Joe and Serena Wailes and their daughter "after she was assigned to share a room, and supposed to share a bed, with a male student on an overnight school trip without their knowledge."

District policy demands students who identify as male, when they are female, or vice versa, should be "assigned to share overnight accommodations with other students that share the student’s gender identity consistently asserted at school."

ADF reported, "The policy also demands that 'under no circumstance' should a student who identifies as the opposite sex be required to share a room with students of the same sex."

But, they charged, the district fails to extend that protection to "other students like the Waileses’ daughter who does not want to share a room with a student of the opposite sex."

The school is demanding it be allowed to violate the Wailses' religious beliefs and parental rights, the letter said.

The ADF explained the district's attempt to injure the girl, and its lying about it:

In the summer of 2023, on a cross-country overnight trip to Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., JCPS assigned the Waileses’ daughter to share a room with a fifth-grade male student who identifies as a girl without notifying the Waileses’ daughter or her parents or getting their consent. The Waileses’ daughter only found out because the male student told her on the first night of the trip. She was uncomfortable about the prospect of sharing a bed with a male student. The girl shared her concerns with her mother, who accompanied her on the trip, and together, they met with a teacher who was acting as a chaperone.

The school chaperone asked the Waileses’ daughter if they could merely move her to a different bed rather than a different room. While she was still uncomfortable with this arrangement, she agreed to try it for one night. JCPS officials then decided to lie to her roommates, and instructed the Waileses’ daughter to do the same, telling her to say she needed to switch beds to be closer to the air conditioner. But once the chaperone and her were back in the room, the Waileses’ daughter was again placed in a difficult position when another girl in the room suggested the male student also switch to the bed near the air conditioner.

Despite the Waileses’ daughter’s continued uneasiness with the arrangement, she was scared to speak up in front of her peers on such a contentious subject and did not want the male student to feel uncomfortable. So, she went into the hall and again told her mother she was not comfortable sharing a bed with a male student. She and her mother returned to the school chaperone and again asked for her to be moved to a different room. This time, JCPS chaperones relented and moved the male student and one of the other girls to a different room, but again lied to the other girls and said the move was to give a sick roommate more space. As ADF attorneys explain in their letter, throughout the evening, the male student’s privacy and feelings were the only concern of JCPS employees. The Waileses want to ensure that all students’ privacy and feelings are considered, and notifying parents of the JCPS overnight policy would accomplish that. Instead, JCPS hides the information from parents disregarding student privacy and parental rights.

The Waileses say the school needs to let all parents – before such trips – that boys who call themselves girls will be roomed, and share beds with, girls, as parents then may want to "opt their children out of such a policy."
