A Roadmap for Schools The Key Recommendations from RGE's Independent NZ Guidelines for Schools.

Independent NZ Guidelines on Sex and Gender in Schools. This fully-referenced, comprehensive guide was sent to schools on 6 May 2024. It provides information, resources, and a roadmap for the development of a New Zealand-wide respectful school climate on sex and gender issues, in alignment with international best practice.

Interview on the Platform Leah Panapa spoke to Fern Hickson on 1 May about the RSE Guide and Resist Gender Education's Open Letter to the Minister of Education.

April 2024 newsletter RGE Open Letter, Roundup of responses to the Cass Review, Curia poll shows 69% oppose gender ideology in primary schools, Secret transition testimonial, Netherlands study re desistance, Sex self-ID in Germany, Tickle vs Giggle, Rainbow Storytime cancelled.

Open Letter to the Minister of Education. Press release 24 April 2024. The Mental Health Foundation’s open letter to the Minister of Education asking her to retain the RSE Guide is unnecessary at best and mischief-making at worst. Sign RGE's open letter asking for the Guide to be removed and replaced.

Cass on Education. Last week, the long-awaited Cass Independent Review of gender identity services for children and young people was released in the UK. It unequivocally demolishes the core beliefs of transgender ideology. This substack quotes extensively from the Cass Review to assist parents and educators when they write to MPs, principals, or BOTs to easily find the evidence they need in support of their demands for an urgent change in NZ education policies.

Questions of Pride. If your local school is participating in Schools' Pride SWeek in June, start asking these questions.

Press statement 2 April 2024 We call on this government to urgently make good its promise to replace the RSE Guide. Protecting our children from this unscientific dogma ought to be a priority for the Education Minister.  

March 2024 newsletter. The list of countries and states that have banned or are investigating the prescription of puberty blockers to gender-distressed children is growing by the week.

Libraries go astray. Drag Queens reading to children is not a way of modelling freedom, being yourself, or being kind; it is showing children a side of life they are not emotionally ready to understand and teaching them that lampooning women in a sexualised way is normal and acceptable behaviour.

When kindness becomes cruelty. Schools that allow social transition before children have reached the cognitive milestone of sex constancy are disrupting the normal development of all the children in the school.

February 2024 newsletter. The inflated suicide statistics for transgender youth are based on faulty research and do not take into account the many psychiatric comorbidities these patients have.

The intersex red herring. LGBTQI is supposed to be a slogan of kindness, acceptance, and unity. But for those co-opted into the acronym against their will, it signifies the opposite. So how did they get linked together?

Listen up, teacher unions. An open letter to the NZEI and PPTA, to explain why the current RSE Guide must be rewritten.

Cut out the nonsense, Ms Stanford. Our Briefing Document to the new Minister of Education, asking her to cut out the gender ideology nonsense from the RSE Guide.

RGE on The Platform.Our spokesperson, Fern Hickson, was interviewed by Sean Plunket on 23 January about why RGE supports the government's plan to replace the RSE Guide and the major changes that are needed. [Correction: Rose Hipkins works for NZCER not The Education Institute.]

Jaunary 2024 newsletter. While New Zealand has been in holiday mode, in the northern hemisphere a tide of caution, clarity, and common sense is beginning to undermine the pillars of gender extremism.

The War to Annihilate Sex by Arty Morty, a Canadian gender critical activist and gay man, clearly explains the gender debate and why the stakes are so high. "The facts simply don’t lie: there really is a crazy new social-media-fueled quasi-religious movement gaslighting everyone into pretending that sex isn’t real, it’s convinced an entire generation of youth that biological sex is some kind of right wing conspiracy, and it’s convinced parents to subject their children to experimental sex change treatments in an effort to prove that their religion is true."

The statistics we are not allowed to know. If we do not know how many students are affected by transgender ideation, which cohorts or demographics are most affected, and whether or not the numbers are increasing, how can our education system provide the care and support our children (and parents) need?
