The Oregon Department of Education has recently shared it's proposed 2nd draft version of K-12 comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) standards. These proposed K-12 Oregon health/sex ed standards are indicative of what the Oregon Department of Education is expecting teachers and administrators to discuss and expose to children in the classroom; concepts that parents and guardians have NOT given school district's permission to do so. Take a look at SOME EXAMPLES of the draft 2nd revision of K-12 sex education "standards". http://parentsrightsined.net/perch/resources/examples-of-nov-2016-draft-health-education-standards-and-performance-indicators-2nd-review-ii.pdf. It is important for school district leaders and residents of the community to find out what EXACT CURRICULUM will be used, what SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIALS/COMMUNITY RESOURCES will be recommended, and what TRAINING will be promoted to both teachers and students? Is the K-12 CSE program, plan of instruction and materials developmentally appropriate, medically and scientifically accurate, and promoting sexual risk avoidance? Is there strong bias and ideology embedded in it? If so, how fair is this? REMEMBER, in Oregon, your child's school board has the final vote on what K-12 comprehensive sexuality education curriculum, training and resources will (and will not) be used on school property (ORS 332.072).
