While U.S. public schools draw much criticism for indoctrinating students with sexual subjects and gender ideology, there’s a similar push underway to expose private schools.
“Private schools across the country are training teachers to expose kids as young as four years old to sexually explicit content — in secrecy and without parents’ knowledge — directed by the National Association Independent Schools (NAIS) as part of a “queer-inclusive” curriculum,” Breitbart reported.

Breitbart News has reviewed an extensive trove of NAIS documents and teacher trainings supplied to private schools nation-wide, which, under the guise of being “queer” and “LGBTQ+ inclusive,” urge the use of graphic sexual material in classes starting at Pre-K.
A nearly hour-long training workshop at NAIS’ flagship conference in 2020, reviewed by Breitbart News, features a discussion about how to talk to kids about “gender, and sexuality, and identity,” including how to talk to kids in Pre-K about “their bodies,” “penises and vaginas,” and “what they feel like inside, do they feel like a boy or a girl.” The conference covers how to teach sex, sexuality, and “gender identity” from Pre-K to Grade 8.
“Starting in Pre-K we talk about their bodies, the parts that they were born with, about penises and vaginas and whether they make somebody a boy or girl. But also their feelings, what do they feel like inside, do they feel like a boy or a girl? What does their head say? Do their heart and their body match up,” the lecturer explains.
The section also features a teacher talking about how she once drew from the wrong book and accidentally talked to children in Pre-K about “the vulva and the labia,” as they reacted in “horror” — stressing that teachers should be “kind to yourself” in instances of error.
“It was my first year so I was like, ‘okay, we’re just super progressive;’ so I went in there guns blazing and I just went for it. And I ended up talking about the vulva and the labia with Pre-K’ers. And it was just one of those moments, everybody’s looking in horror, and I’m like, ‘oh, no, I made a really big mistake.’ And I share that with you because it’s not perfect, right? It’s a practice. So be kind to yourself when you’re delving into this stuff,” the teacher told her fellow NAIS educators in the flagship conference.

Among the materials, which Breitbart obtained from “undercover mothers” across the country, are visual aids including the gender-fluidity-promoting Gender Unicorn and Genderbread Person and posters explaining flags for no less than seven different “alternative” sexual designations, as well as Maia Kobabe’s notorious book Gender Queer, which features explicit illustrations of sex acts.
Arguably even more alarming than the content of the material, however, is language in NAIS school enrollment contracts that prohibits parents from expressing “strong disagreement” with such material, lest their children be expelled; and rejecting parents’ right to know about gender confusion their children may be experiencing, or input in what “identity” schools choose to recognize.
“It is clear that our schools, at the direction [of] NAIS, are actively working to rob our children of their innocence and sow doubt about the most fundamental aspects of human nature,” said the mother of an eight-year-old made to “affirm his gender” by one of these schools, speaking to Breitbart anonymously for fear of reprisals. “It is nothing short of child abuse. Parents of young children should be shaken to their core. Who are you trusting to teach your children? What are they learning?”
In public schools, a deluge of examples of left-wing teachers using their taxpayer-funded positions of authority to expose captive underage audiences to various far-left doctrines, from critical race theory to gender fluidity, have inspired a wave of state laws placing new limits and scrutiny on classroom content.
Leftist indoctrination in private schools, which are not subject to direct state oversight like public schools, represents a more complicated challenge, as while parents are not forced to fund them or send their children to them, many parents expect private schools to offer an alternative to such issues in public schools.
