A California family group says mothers in the state have had enough of public schools exposing their children to radical sex-ed curriculum, and they're doing something about it.
Leaders of Informed Parents of California recently gathered on the Capitol building steps to make legislators and the State Department of Education aware of their outrage. Though this was the first rally, Greg Burt of the California Family Council says the new group is already making an impact.
"There [are] legislators now paying attention to them," he reports. "Some staunch Christian Republicans up here at the state Capitol are starting to pay attention and help them out."
Informed Parents is also planning to hold a sex-ed sit out Tuesday. The mothers are encouraging other concerned parents to keep their kids home from school that day to protest the contentious curriculum.
"When kids aren't in school, the state does not get the funding for that particular child that day," Burt explains. "Hopefully taking that funding from schools will start to wake them up."
The group is also planning additional rallies in March and May, when the proposed health curriculum framework will come before the State Board of Education for a vote.
