sex educationAnxious parents in California are planning to hold a rally at the state capitol next Wednesday when the Senate Education Committee meets to vote on a bill requiring greater transparency regarding sex education curriculum.

SB 673, inspired by a parent and introduced by Republican Senator Mike Morrell, would require schools to put such curriculum online for easy and convenient parental review.

"We're simply asking that school districts make sure parents have easy access to sex-ed curriculum when you're teaching in elementary school," explains California Family Council spokesman Greg Burt. "So parents are coming out next week. We're going to have a rally before the hearing and a rally after the hearing."

Burt cannot imagine why the legislature would vote such a measure down, as it is for the well-being of elementary-age students.

"If they vote against it, they need to know we're not going away," he asserts. "We have other bills in mind that we are intending to introduce, and so this is a long-term effort."

As it stands right now, most districts only allow for parental and the public inspection during regular district operating hours.
