The sexualization of public education is outraging parents and driving massive calls for academic overhaul. America’s largest teachers union, the National Education Association (NEA) is now under more fire for promoting explicit content in schools. Recently, one of their Ohio branches was exposed for handing out badges fitted with QR codes that link to sexual instruction sites depicting how to perform vulgar sex acts.

A parent from a local chapter of the conservative activist group, Ohio Parents Rights in Education, first brought the QR badges to light speaking of her outrage over them with local news. According to reports, they were handed out to teachers by the LGTBQ+ caucus of the NEA’s Hilliard, Ohio branch. With the unions’ tag at the top, the bottom of the badge is equipped with a QR sticker that leads to LGBTQ+ resources.

Christopher Rufo, a popular fellow from the Manhattan Institute and social media presence pushing for parental rights in education shared the story on Twitter. He said that when people scan the NEA’s provided QR code, a list of sites pops up, including one controversial link called Queering Sex Ed. The document, provided by Planned Parenthood of Toronto, offers detailed but controversial instructions. 

The document provided by the NEA  is formatted with bright colorful combos. The instruction is presented as if it is a recipe card for baking. The sex acts describe how to perform anal sex, bondage, sadomasochism, and much more. 

Rufo berated the NEA for providing this information in schools. Citing how influential and sweeping the nation’s largest teacher’s union is, he called the finding “disgraceful.” Local parent Lisa Chaffee also ridiculed the decision, saying it was taking away from core academics and putting a school focus on sexuality. 

Hilliard school district’s Superintendent Dave Steward responded to the outrage by defending the NEA badges. He asserted that the QR links on the back were not intended to be given to students, and were directed only at teachers. He also noted that the front of the badge, which is to be visible to students if worn, simply identified LGBTQ+ inclusivity, with the text “I’m here.” 

Furthermore, Steward says that the intent of the NEA QR code linking to LGBTQ+ resources purpose was to offer learning material for any educators interested in doing so. It was meant to connect them to a better understanding of LGBTQ+ students and the issues they face. How and why detailed instruction on sex acts is considered support material, remains questionable to many.

The NEA has been in existence since 1857. Today, they are extremely influential in steering education policy all over the nation. For a long time, the organization – which has more than 3 million members – has advocated for LGBTQ+ rights in America.


But many parents and politicians feel that this is an overstepping of responsibilities by the NEA. They oppose gender issues and sexuality being discussed in the school setting, wishing for it to remain a discussion in the home. The issue is relevant to many involved, but for now, it looks like the QR code will remain on hand for Hilliard teachers who wish to access them.
