Protect Innocent Children! Parents Want OPT-IN CSE in K-12 Education
Parents are outraged by the Education Standards and Performance Indicators set by the Oregon Department of Education. Parents, concerned about the emotional and well being of their children have been left out of this decision making process. Many have strong values which are not respected by these Standards. Parents want real equity in the process. Many are blindsided when they learn their children have been taught ideologies and information they deem inappropriate. This is wrong and biased against these families. We petition the ODE and Oregon School Board Association, the courses pertaining to controversial and sensitive materials used in the health curriculum have an OPT -IN requirement, not OPT-OUT as it is currently. Opt-Out is not foolproof. Often, even with a request on file, students are exposed to assemblies, outside speakers, and curriculum, their parents have requested to be exempt from. Attention to this matter will not go without appreciation and support of our communities, providing real equity for all parents, and students. The best way to increase the reach f this message is to SHARE with your friends!
