Parents, Beware!

Once more I must speak out against our California Public Schools and implore parents to take their kids out of the system, or be ready to speak out and protect their correct understanding of human sexuality.

The California Board of Education has unanimously approved new health-education “content standards” that require public schools to teach students about contraception, AIDS, and respect for all sexual orientations. “The California Comprehensive Sexual Health and HIV/AIDS Prevention Education Act, which was adopted by the legislature in 2003 at the behest of Planned Parenthood, became law on Jan. 1, 2004. State education officials were given until this month to meet the law’s requirements. Under the new law, school districts that offer sex-ed may no longer offer abstinence-only programs. Instead, students must learn about contraception, condoms, human sexuality and sexually transmitted diseases in a way that is “medically accurate and objective.

Religion can not be mentioned. The law also requires that any sex-ed taught respect all sexual orientations and be tailored to meet the needs of different sexual orientations, cultures and ethnicities.

While school districts cannot offer abstinence-only sexual education, the law does permit them to offer no sex-ed at all. In addition, at the beginning of each school year, parents are given the opportunity to withdraw their children from sex-ed instruction, although critics say the new law is much less strenuous in this respect than was the case before it was passed.

There are two answers to this: (1) homeschooling; and/or (2) adamant refusal to let one's children be brainwashed with politically correct sex ed programs. The school districts hate home schooling because they lose the ADA (average daily attendance), and that translates into loss of state subventions.

Catholic schools are not affected by the details of this legislation. Fortunately, they still have their freedom. However, the movement is attemptng to expand this vision of homosexuality and sexual freedom-Cathlic teachers beware!
