Letter: In response to Sandi Diebel’s March 24 letter to the editor

Posted 4/7/22

Ms. Diebel’s admission that she does not have children in school reveals Ms. Diebel’s uninformed agenda. I fail to comprehend how such a definitive opinion can be formed without either direct personal observation or second hand reporting from one’s children about what and how curriculum in schools is being administered.

Letter: In response to Sandi Diebel’s March 24 letter to the editor


I sent three children through the Jefferson County Schools, all three of which received excellent academic preparation and are all three college graduates. Additionally, after retiring from my career I substitute taught in the Jefferson County Schools for four years. I was in classrooms ranging K-12 over one hundred times and I never once saw or heard a single teacher or administrator propagandizing about gender identity issues, hatred of our country, or pitting children against each other based upon race.

I’ll report what I did see: Children as early as third grade struggling with gender identification and receiving minor teasing to out and out ridicule by their classmates. This is not a subject that should be swept under the rug. Children need to be educated on this issue. There is no indoctrination going on, and this is first hand observation and not ideology speaking.

What Ms. Diebel wants is a return to segregated private schools using public money. Public schools have been an integral part of what has made the United States a worldwide academic leader. Her allegations against the teaching profession are prejudicial and insulting not to mention again uninformed.

Bill Starks, Arvada
