School field trip to adult toy store angers parents

MINNEAPOLIS — A field trip to an adult novelty shop without consent has caused some parents to pull their children out of a Minnesota school.

“We feel that the bond of trust between parent and educator has been irrevocably damaged.”According to WCCO, students from Gaia Democratic School went to Smitten Kitten for a field trip following a month-long sex education class.

The K-12 private school has about 25 students, but now has three fewer after angry parents took them out of the school.

Parents who say they were not notified are questioning the school’s administration over the trip.

In a letter to the school’s principal, one parent said, “We feel that the bond of trust between parent and educator has been irrevocably damaged.”

The owner of Smitten Kitten said in a statement that the store is an educational resource about sex and sexuality for the community.

School officials have not returned WCCO’s calls.

The school has not released a statement about why the decision was made to take minors to an adult store.
