    A North Carolina preschool used flash cards featuring LGBTQ themes to
    teach kids colors, including one card depicting a pregnant man.

    "Schools should only be using age-appropriate materials, and these
    flashcards clearly do not meet that standard for a pre-school
    classroom," Republican State Rep. Erin Paré said in a statement after
    being alerted to the cards by a constituent, according to North
    Carolina Speaker of the House Tim Moore.

    Paré said a concerned constituent emailed her about the cards that were
    being used to teach preschoolers colors at Ballentine Elementary School
    in Wake County, NC. Paré then contacted the principal of the elementary
    school in an attempt to verify the use of the cards in class, with the principal taking "swift action" to investigate the constituents claims.

    The principal was able to locate the cards in the preschool classroom
    and verify with the teacher that they had been used to teach colors,
    which the principal said was approved curriculum at the school. The
    principal took possession of the cards and alerted the district
    superintendent and human resources about the incident, which she said
    she was unaware of until being alerted to the situation by Paré.


    "I hope schools across Wake County and the State of North Carolina will
    follow the example of Ballentine and respond swiftly when a parent
    expresses concern and ensure that materials like this are not being
    used to teach young students," Paré said.


    The teacher was trying to warp the minds of the children, and should
    lose the right to teach in that state.
