Gaia Democratic School director Starri Hedges took about a dozen students to the Smitten Kitten last week. Hedges told the Star Tribune that she wanted to provide a safe environment for students to learn about human sexual behavior. “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,” Hedges said. Some of her students bought condoms, she said. Parent Lynn Floyd’s 11- and 13-year-old daughters were on the field trip, and has since withdrawn his children from the school. Floyd said he is most troubled that parents were never notified before the trip. Minnesota Department of Education spokesman Josh Collins said the state has no authority over the school because it is private. Here are some of the products sold there.
