Your local school district needs to proceed with great caution when updating its sex ed policy and in selecting their "district approved" curricula.

Do you know what your child is reading in school? You have the LEGAL RIGHT to know! Hold your district accountable to what they deem "educational literature" and how your tax dollars are being spent. You are entrusting YOUR children to their care during the school day.
If these questions resonate with what you or someone you know is experiencing under the guise of "anti-bullying", then is the school environment truly being safe and supportive for ALL students?

Use respectful resolve and don't allow yourself to be bullied into handing over your rightful place as guardians of your children. Here is an excellent article by Katherine Kersten that will help you understand many of the realities of anti-bullying campaigns: Legislative Bullying - A Safe and Supportive Environment?
“Comprehensive sex education” is a sham and a joke. It’s also more than just a little creepy. If an adult in ANY OTHER CONTEXT came up to your child and tried to strike up a conversation about ”self-pleasure” or “oral sex,” you’d likely have … uh… “words”… with him, and then words with the police. ~Matt WalshA perspective we think worthy of sharing with you! www.themattwalshblog.com/2014/01/16/hey-public-schools-its-time-for-a-separation-of-sex-and-state
