A North Carolina preschool teacher has been caught using unapproved LGBTQ flash cards – which include images of a pregnant man – to teach 3- and 4-year-old children colors. 

State Representative Erin Paré and Speaker of the House Tim Moore, both Republicans, brought attention to the cards after Paré was emailed by a concerned constituent.  

The constituent claimed that the flash cards were being used by an unidentified teacher to educate preschoolers at Ballantine Elementary School in Wake County. 

Paré contacted the principal of the school to see if she was aware of the use of the cards, which showcase LGBTQ relationships and also go through what each of the colors in the Pride Flag mean.

The cards are made by a now-defunct company called ByUs Box, which also made sets of flash cards showcasing non-binary and transgender animals, gender neutral nursery rhymes and a ‘Blackness Collection.’ The company was created by two women who said they were inspired by the murder of George Floyd.

Moore and Paré say that Principal Lutashia Dove – who was unaware they were being used – verified that the teacher had been using the cards outside the approved curriculum. 

Dove then ‘took possession of the cards’ and contacted the local superintendent and human resources. 

‘I am grateful that a concerned constituent reached out and that this issue is being addressed in a swift and professional manner by Ballentine Elementary School,’ said Paré. 

‘Schools should only be using age-appropriate materials, and these flashcards clearly do not meet that standard for a pre-school classroom,’ she added. 

‘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.’ 

Principal Lutashia Dove - who was unaware they were being used - verified that the teacher had been using the cards outside the approved curriculum and took the cards from the teacher

The school district released a statement on its own, according to the News & Observer.  

‘The district is concerned to learn of the inappropriate instructional resource found in a preschool classroom,’ they said. ‘An initial review determined that flash cards were not tied to the district’s Pre-K curriculum, did not complement, enrich, or extend the curriculum and were used without the principal’s review, knowledge, and/or approval.’

Currently, the North Carolina General Assembly is attempting to pass legislation that they believe would address what they call ‘age-inappropriate classroom materials’ and would give parents more control over what children are taught in school.
