The public is fed up with educators who claim to support children while secretly living a life to the contrary. Parents want people to teach their children the fundamentals of education without influencing young minds with radical ideologies.
It seems that not a day goes by where some educator is suddenly exposed for a lifestyle that is contrary to the children and community they serve. Parents, and even some school administrators, are taking a stand against such influences in schools.
What is sad is that some publicly elected school officials try to defend these questionable lifestyles. It takes a strong administrator to step in and straighten out the situation. That’s what happened in an Oklahoma school district after a principal was exposed for his past drag queen personality.
From the Washington Examiner:
Dr. Shane Murnan is no longer the principal at John Glenn Elementary School as of Friday. Murnan was also known as “Shantel Mandalay,” a performer impersonating a female. Before he was hired in June 2023, while in drag, Murnan would reportedly read to young children for story time.
A social media influencer first exposed the principal. Libs of TikTok revealed the principal’s alternate identity on X, formerly known as Twitter. Oklahoma State Superintendent Ryan Walters was alerted to the post and began investigating. He confirmed the principal’s departure from the elementary school.
“The drag queen is out at Western Heights. I’ve demanded it from day one,” Walters said in a video Friday. “It will not be tolerated here in Oklahoma to have drag queens in the classroom.”
Libs of TikTok celebrated the news saying, “This is a big win for students in Oklahoma!” Libs of TikTok started conversations about the drag queen months ago, even flying to Oklahoma to alert the school board. The board actually defended the principal before the state superintendent stepped in and changed the course of the conversation.
“Drag queens don’t belong in the classroom,” Walters said in a video on X. “This is common sense. Parents have been outraged. We have finally got education back on track. This is just the beginning.”
Walters also confirmed that an investigation is underway into the hiring practices at the Western Heights School District where the drag queen was given a job. A new principal at the elementary school has not yet been named.
This will be a situation to watch to see if the state superintendent can influence the hiring of the new principal. The goal should be to avoid another radical ideologist holding sway over the impressionable minds of young children.
- Drag queen past of elementary school principal was exposed in Oklahoma.
