Taking School Sex Education too Far*
By Adan Salazar
Officials stand by sex-ed lesson designed to teach ‘appropriate’ middle school dating behaviors.
Parents of a middle school student in San Marcos, Cali., were upset over questions posed to their daughter during an apparent sex-ed lesson.
In a family life and health class lesson purporting to teach “appropriate” dating behaviors for the middle school level, students were asked to disclose how far they’d gone sexually, information parents contend the school has no business knowing.
Students at the Woodland Park Middle School were asked to stand beneath signs labeled, “smiled at, hugged, kissed, above the waist, below the waist, and all the way,” according to KGTV.
The parents of at least one student contacted the news outlet to vent their disgust with the lesson’s perverted nature.
“To put them up in front of their friends to be humiliated or to be asked questions that I believe are personal, it’s really none of the school’s business,” the parent told KGTV.
The parents say their 14-year-old, eighth-grade daughter was embarrassed and disturbed by the lesson, in addition to feeling peer pressured.
“For the children to get that confused is just another reason why it shouldn’t even be in the schools,” the parents said.
“The couple says their daughter and her classmates were in disbelief because they thought the teacher wanted to know how far they’ve gone sexually,” reports ABC 10.
The parents are upset they weren’t able to sign off on the lesson, but the school maintains it did indeed send permission slips home notifying parents and that the same lesson had been taught for years.
“The parents sign permission slips for the class and can look at the curriculum prior. The purpose of the lesson was to open the lines of communication between parents and students about dating expectations,” the principal told 10News.
Previously we have illustrated how state-imposed public school sex education courses, promoted by organizations such as Planned Parenthood, do little to discourage young children from engaging in sexual activity and instead have the opposite effect, teaching children about sexual promiscuity, homosexuality and anal sex, to name a few, in a cycle designed to prop up the abortion industry and create a generation of sex addicts.
Last month we also covered how state-funded sex education courses dually act as mediums by which the state gradually wrests the parental role from parents. Carol Everett, a former Texas abortion clinic owner turned pro-life advocate, admitted state-funded sex education courses were “breaking down the natural modesty of children and damaging parental bonds,” reported the Catholic Register. Everett said children were being “taught about sex and masturbation in ways that ‘shame the children’ so they will not be comfortable telling their parents what they heard.”
