Moms & dads fed up with state's graphic sex-ed program

sex educationSome angry parents in California have told lawmakers in Sacramento they've had enough of the state's radical sex-education program being taught in their schools.

Late last month, the group Informed Parents of California organized a rally at the State Capitol to voice their concern over the continuing implementation of the California Healthy Youth Act that was passed in 2015. It was the second such rally organized by IPOC in protest of the K-12 curriculum.

Greg Burt of the California Family Council was there for the more recent rally, and he estimates about 500 frustrated parents were at the rally. According to Burt, the content of the curricula is nearly impossible to talk about in polite society.

"They're now introducing kids to the most graphic things," he tells OneNewsNow. "You can't even say these things on TV or radio because they're way too graphic."

According to the California Healthy Youth Act, parents can opt their children out of certain portions of the teaching. But Burt contends that's not as good as it sounds.

"The opt-out is only allowed for the sex ed that talks about the sex act and reproduction," he explains. "But [for] anything dealing with sexual orientation and gender identity, parents are not able to opt out of those lessons."

The State Board of Education is scheduled to vote on the new Health Education Framework on May 8-9. IPOC has compiled a 24-page summary of what it calls "the most objectionable portions" of the 1,000-page framework document.

Informed Parents of California states if their demands are ignored or not listened to, they are advising moms and dads to pull their children out of public schools next year.
