“FAMILY” CURRICULUM NOT KID-FRIENDLY
Christians need to keep an eye on all bills regarding comprehensive sexuality education aimed at public schools in their state legislatures. For instance:
· San Diego, Calif.: Parents urged the San Diego Unified School District to suspend their new Sexual Health Education program saying some of its lessons for children in the 6th grade encourage early sexual experimentation and go well beyond new California state laws about sex ed.
· Massachusetts: The state’s Department of Elementary and Secondary Education aims to add the Get Real curriculum to the state's mandatory course work. Produced by Planned Parenthood, it teaches children as young as kindergarten-age about human sexuality. The Get Real middle school and high-school tables of contents is under “Program Features.”
· Fairfax Virginia: Parents started a website with their objections to the Fairfax County Family Life Education (FLE) Curriculum. The web link, “What’s in the new FLE curriculum says, “Some lessons…encourage behaviors contrary to personal health and well-being, are age-inappropriate, inaccurate or incomplete, and contradict the state goals of the FLE program.”
SCRIPTURE: 2 Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 5:3.
PRAY: Parents take back control of educating children.
ACTION: Go to the Salt & Light table. Write a postcard to your state legislators: “Dear Sen./Rep. (Name) I urge that state laws affirm parental rights and keep sexually explicit materials out of public school curriculums.”
