Some Knox Co. parents are upset about the Planned Parenthood people coming into the schools as guest speakers. This has gotten a lot of news coverage the last couple of days. Thank God my children are way beyond school age - but I looked at some of the links given in the news report. One thing that one parent was incensed about was that the teacher "made a mistake" and forgot to pass out "opt out" forms for parental consent to participate in the program. I've never had to deal with the sex ed situation but I was curious since there's so much being said about the subject. Pretty interesting - do any of you as parents know about the sex ed classes in your child's school? Also, I know we have a couple teachers on USMB - what are your thoughts? Concerned parents rally over Planned Parenthood in schools I'm going to have to edit after posting this because I can't remember the title of one link that sort of raised my eyebrows. Oh, and very often in the various links they refer to "sexuality education" as opposed to "sex ed." The link "actual presentation" was the one that raised my eyebrows - sort of a curriculum.
