Making The Leap Podcast: Teachers and Parents Push Back


This week on a new episode of Making the Leap Podcast, co-hosts Chris and Christine Stigall discuss how public schools are adopting gender ideology policies which override parental control, confuse adolescent children, and even lie to parents about what is happening with their children. They talk about the roles and limitations of teachers.

Chris interviews Kimberly Hermann, General Counsel with the Southeastern Legal Foundation, who is suing the Springfield, MO school district on behalf of two teachers over their “anti-racist” teacher training programs. 

Christine and Chris also interview Ginny Gentles, Director of the Education Freedom Center at the Independent Women’s Forum, about the teacher training programs and administrative policies that attempt to promote and affirm gender confusion, no matter the view of parents.
