Parents Livid Over ‘Democratic’ School’s Shock Field Trip — but the Director Says It Was ‘Beautiful’

The ideas that come from the Gaia Democratic School in Minneapolis, Minnesota seem beyond understanding. It’s a case of a school field trip to a porn and sex novelty shop that took place in an article appearing The Blaze on June 2, 2015. This is something that shouldn’t be done to kids, and every parents worst nightmare.

Roughly one dozen students in Minneapolis, Minnesota, some as young as 11 years old, were taken on a private school-sponsored field trip to an adult novelty store last week, leaving some parents furious.

The director of the private Gaia Democratic School in Minneapolis, Starri Hedges, took the middle- and high school-aged kids to “Smitten Kitten” as part of a sex education lesson.

Parent Lynn Floyd called the field trip a “major breach of trust,” adding that parents were not even notified ahead of the trip. Both of her daughters, aged 11 and 13, attended the off-campus trip.

“You just can’t erase those images,” the mother said.

However, Hedges called the sex-ed field trip “beautiful” in a statement on Monday, according to the Star Tribune.

“What I saw happening on our trip, I thought it was beautiful because kids could talk to these sex educators without any shame, without any fear,” she said.

This last sentiment she said shows she doesn’t believe this was wrong or that they’ve done anything wrong, only that they’ve upset parents.

Here are some details about the city code:

According to Minneapolis city code, those younger than 18 should not be exposed to “sexually provocative written, photographic, printed, sound, or published materials deemed harmful to minors.”

Hedges also said it was the “first time we have taken that kind of field trip and it will probably be our last,” which she explained makes her feel bad “because the kids had so much fun.”

Hedges appeared in a video posted on YouTube in which she explains the mission of Gaia Democratic School:

This is Crazy, after watching the video, I’m certain everything done was a Leftists Agenda. There was no legal action taken, the parents weren’t told nor clearly informed prior to the so called field trip taking place. The fact that the parents didn’t know was a prime opportunity to be exploited by the school or persons in charge of the field trip, no harm, no foul? What was experienced by the children can never be erased. This is Progressives agenda, that they can exploit the parents trust, and forward progressive agenda at the cost of everyone involved.
