is she woke teacher being victimized by the bigoted education board

This woke teacher in Brooksville has made national headlines after she chose to show a banned film to her class. 

A Disney Movie

Jenna Barbee, a teacher known for her left-leaning beliefs, played the Disney movie “Strange World” to her 5th-grade class at Winding Waters K-8.

It Had Been Banned?!

She later learned that the film was banned due to its content involving sexual orientation. 

She Was Removed From Teaching

Barbee was removed from the classroom for showing the film, which contains a gay character.

An Investigation Was Launched

The Florida Department of Education is now investigating her.

She Took To Social Media

Barbee recently posted a TikTok video, which has gained over half a million views, attempting to justify her decision to show the film.

She Justified Her Decision

In the video, Barbee defends her stance on LGBTQ and transgender issues and claims that she chose the movie not because of its LGBTQ content but to teach the kids about earth science and ecosystems. 

Not Fit For the Classroom!

Board member Sharon Rodriguez argues, “Strange World opens the door to conversations that have no place in the classroom.”

The Left-Wing Agenda

Conservatives view the film as part of a left-wing agenda that includes environmentalism and the “climate crisis.” 

LGBTQ 5th Graders

Barbee claims that she has had students approach her throughout the year, identifying themselves as part of the LGBTQ community. 

She’s Not Forcing Them

Although Barbee says, she doesn’t force anything on her students.

Curiosity Should Be Discouraged

Parents who disagree argue that the things shown in the classroom, like visuals, signs, and movies, spark their children’s curiosity, and teachers like Barbee take advantage of that.

Woke Teachers

Other woke teachers who support viewing LGBTQ films say they have to create a safe space for discussions. 

Challenging Religious Parents

Parents disagree as it goes against their religious beliefs. “Strange World” was not released in Muslim countries and China due to controversy.

They’re Dredging Up Her Past

This is not the first time Barbee has found herself embroiled in controversy. In 2016, she was arrested on fraud charges while working at a Spring Hill Target department store. 

Felony Charges!

Barbee was accused of stealing $2,200 and faced felony Fraud charges. Some believed her father, who was the Hernando County Clerk of Court, used his influence to hide her arrest. 

They Cleared Her Record

Eventually, the Sheriff explained it was a system error, and Barbee’s record was cleared. 

She’s Received a Lot of Attention

Her recent media appearances have gained attention, but how it will affect her case is unclear. 

Upcoming Hearing

The upcoming Hernando County School Board meeting on May 30th is anticipated to have a large turnout.

People Supported the Teacher

In a shocking twist, TikTokers stood firmly beside the teacher.

One TikToker said, “We are behind you. I am so sorry. Thank you for teaching kindness… Florida and the world need more like you!”

Representation is Not Indoctrination

Another slams Florida’s school board by arguing, “Representation of a gay or LGBTQ person is not indoctrination, but forcing straight and Christian belief into people’s lives is indoctrination.”
