Laura Maria Gruber, 45, sent her daughter to KIPP Poder Academy in San Antonio. Her school website claims to celebrate “diversity, equity and inclusion.”
But last September, Gruber withdrew his teenage daughter from school. I learned that her teacher had her students play a game called “Bear Hooker Hunter” in her classroom.
Originally from Puerto Rico, Gruber claims her daughter and other students in her 7th grade Social Emotional Learning class paired up and posed in front of the class.
The teens were then told to pretend to be “hunters” and point imaginary guns at each other. A “scary bear” with her paws up, or a “seductive whore” with one hand on her hip and the other behind her ear.
A mother in Texas complained to a school about her 13-year-old daughter being in a classroom where she was asked to act as a “seductive whore.”

The exact purpose of the game is unknown, but it is believed to be some kind of “team building” exercise.
“I picked up my daughter and her best friend from school and my daughter said, ‘We played this game at school, mom, you’re going to be upset,'” Gruber said. Fox News.
“I almost hit my car when she told me about kids who were up in class and pretending to be whores.”
Upon learning of the bizarre classroom role-play, Gruber drags his daughter out of the classroom and demands an apology from the administrator.
Gruber’s allegations against the school stated that the game sexualizes teenagers, and that one girl in the class was sexually assaulted and “triggered” by the experience.

Her own daughter decided not to participate in the game, but the boys and girls in her class were bribed with candy to play together and were told to organize them in order of maturity.
“The teachers were quite young, so you can imagine what kind of people are coming out of college now to teach our children,” said Gruber. It got worse and shy, she said the boys and the teacher were laughing.
“The experience was particularly disgusting for her because another girl in her class had been sexually assaulted.”
Six months after Gruber first filed a complaint with school administrators, she received an apology after meeting with KIPP administrators in San Antonio and Austin.
Other parents of the children in the class were not informed of the classroom antics and Gruber’s complaints until the school board apologized for the game.
‘I really feel like I had. I wanted my kids to go to this school for diversity and I trusted them. But I had no idea it would involve sexual diversity and the objectification of children,” Gruber said. new york post.
“The worst thing is that the school is located in the city center and San Antonio is known as a center of child sex trafficking.”
Principal Stephanie Lee agreed the game was below normal standards, but noted that the intention was not to sexualize participants.
In an apology, KIPP acknowledged that the game did not meet its “standards of excellence” and was inappropriate for students.
The school denied the game sexualized children, even though the teens had to pretend to “seduce a prostitute.”
Principal Stephanie Lee agreed that the game was below the school’s normal standards, but noted that it was not intended to sexualize the participants.
“We always pursue excellence as a core value, but sometimes we stumble,” Lee wrote in a February letter to the school’s family.
“The game was not part of the KIPP curriculum and was not suitable for students,” Lee added.
“We always strive for excellence as a core value, but sometimes we stumble,” Lee wrote in a letter to the school’s families in February.
“This game was not part of the KIPP curriculum and was not suitable for students. Activities involving actions and words such as ‘whore’ and ‘seduction’ should never be allowed in school. Although the intention was never to sexualize a child, we recognize that the effect may have been distressing and traumatic to our students. Trying to be respectful is not respectful. In fact, it’s degraded.
“The term ‘prostitute’ is an unkind word and should not be used or repeated,” the principal said in the letter.
Gruber disagreed with the school’s explanation and said waiting six months for a response was unacceptable.
Gruber took her complaint to the Texas Department of Education, which closed the investigation because it “focused on inappropriate teacher-student relationships.”
The Texas Attorney General is also said to have declined the lawsuit, along with the U.S. Department of Education, which similarly dismissed the lawsuit after an interview with Gruber.
While KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) schools have a progressive educational stance and focus on teaching black, Latino, and LGBTQIA children, Gruber said the case can only help my children be more aware of what they are being taught. In the classroom.
