Scores of protesters congregated outside of Wednesday’s New Jersey School Board meeting in Trenton, Save Jerseyans, waiving signs and trading barbs over the Board’s 6-5 August vote to nix gendered nouns and pronouns from part of the state administrative code (among other wacky changes).
Also at issue: an active Murphy Administration lawsuit against three Monmouth County school districts which dared to adopt a policy requiring parents and guardians to be informed if their child attempts to change pronouns, their name, or their bathroom/locker room based upon gender “preference.”
Inside the meeting, Assemblyman Christian Barranco (R-26) stood up and delivered a passionate defense of parental rights.
“The raising and educating of our children does not take a village; it takes parents. It has always taken parents, and it always will take parents,” Barranco told the Board in a clear reference to Hillary Clinton’s infamous “it takes a village” theory.
Barranco is running in LD25 this year, by the way; he was redistricting into the neighboring Morris County outpost, while Brian Bergen (R-25) is now the nominee to succeed Barranco in LD26.
