Boys and girls at an Arizona elementary school were ordered by their to recite a gender neutral version of the Declaration of Independence.

ABC15 News reports a fourth grade teacher at Salk Elementary School in Mesa crossed out the words “man” and substituted it with the word “human.”

Parent Elizabeth Vaillencourt was so outraged by the teacher’s desecration of the Declaration of Independence that she posted a picture of the altered document on her Facebook page. 

I was hurt. I was mortified. I was disturbed at the fact that somebody is changing historical documents and nobody has the right to change our historical documents,” she told the television station. 

School leadership told Vaillencourt that the Facebook posting “hurt the teacher’s feelings,” television station KGUN reported. 

Instead of dealing with a teacher forcing her political ideology on children, the school simply moved Vaillencourt’s daughter to another classroom.

“You teach what’s written. You don’t get to rewrite it and teach it how you feel you believe,” she said. 

Mesa Public Schools later issued a statement admitting the teacher made a mistake by desecrating the Declaration of Independence. 

“It should be recited as written, and not modified in any way. School administration, when learning of the alteration to the text, provided feedback and guidance to the teacher to restore the document to its original format,” the statement read. 

Folks, it’s clear to me this school has a raging infestation of liberals trying to indoctrinate American children. 

Fortunately, I provide a remedy for the problem in my new book – “The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again.”
