Parents who don’t want their children learning about sexual orientation in kindergarten should have true school choice to switch their kids to a charter, private, or homeschooling, says GOP gubernatorial candidate Heidi Ganahl.

“When 60% of our kids in Colorado cannot read, write, or do math at grade level, and we’re gonna spend almost $8 billion in this coming budget on K through 12, something’s got to change and I think that’s got to be competition,” Ganahl said.

In an interview last week on KHOW,  Dan Caplis asked Ganahl if she will pin Gov. Polis down on this issue when they meet in debate, and where the Democrat stands on the Florida law gender activists have dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

The bill doesn’t actually prohibit anyone from saying gay, but according to the Associated Press, the bill states: “Classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.”

Ganahl said teaching sex ed in kindergarten is one of many “disgusting and terrible” issues Polis has embraced or failed to lead on, including the Green New Deal, the nursing home debacle, unemployment fraud, fentanyl overdoses, and taking criminal punishment advice from Kim Kardashian.

“We’ve got to start standing up for our children and not let them be controlled by people besides us (parents). The parents come first, we’ve got to get power back the parents,” Ganahl said.
