Dept. of Education eliminates terms ‘mother’ and ‘father’ from forms

First, news agencies eliminate the term “illegal immigrant” from their stories.

Now it looks like the language police have shown up at the Department of Education. Oliver Darcy of Campus Reform has this report:

The U.S. Department of Education (DOE) has announced it will replace “gender specific terms like ‘mother’ and father’” in the 2014-2015 federal student aid form with neutral language.


The new language, “parent one” and “parent two,” is aimed at accommodating students who have grown up in gay households and have either two mothers or two fathers, according to a statement released by the DOE late last month. Scissors-32x32.png
