In today's education climate, parents, teachers and school leaders are often confused about the direction of education and what and how children are learning. For anyone interested in the minefields that young people navigate in schools today, this book exposes the ills, questions the status quo, engages the reader in a common-sense way, and provides solutions to the confusion created in schools. The culmination of over exposure of young children to Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, and Asexual (LGBTQIA) topics, the banning of religion in schools, and the runaway train of illegal immigration creates confusion that won't soon pass. In addition, the trend for politicians to appoint superintendents of schools, commissioners of education (at state and federal levels), and other education leaders who do not have experience or formal training in education is confusing and disturbing. Would anyone visit a doctor who was not experienced in medicine? It's not likely. There are gray areas in schools that are becoming standard practice. This top-down confusion leads everyone to ask the question: Is Gray the New Pink in Education?
