Parental rights and responsibilities | Letter

SB 5395 requires all public schools and school districts to implement a comprehensive sex ed curriculum for grades K-12 by September 1, 2021.

Parents and school districts have no say in determining the curriculum; it does not adequately inform non-English speaking families; most importantly, the bill fails to address complex oral issues tied to human sexuality.

Sex education is a parent right and responsibility.

If this is Planned Parenthood sex ed curriculum, it is dangerous and evil for school-age children at any level. Parents across the country have denounced and protested Planned Parenthood’s sex ed program with success and program removal. Parents and community, we must protect our children!
