Why this petition matters

Started by Paul Bruno

There is a new curicillium going into effect for every grade in Wauwatosa for Human Growth and Development. Very few know it or understand it. 

The school board let the public view the material being implimented and gave the public 6 hours, at a predetermined time and place where they could view it. During that time a survey was sent to 13,000 emails. Only 183 were counted, and many were taken out in a way that violates open record laws. If every grade will be learning it, the parents have a right to know what's actually in it. Only1.5% of parents responded, that were counted in the official results,  understand and want this to be implemented.  

There are many who oppose it or don't know enough to have an opinion. With the speed and the lack of transparency the school board is taking, the short notice given, parents and taxpayers in Wauwatosa should have an open transparent meeting where the concerns about the curicillium that will be given as much weight as the positives. The serious concerns brought by parents and even a Harvard PHD should be known by the public if we are to make a decision to fundamentally change and implement a new theory that is still evolving at a time where grades are falling at a concerning rate.


By the districts on stats used, about 70% of the respondents agree or strongly agree with what’s being implemented. That’s 128. If this petition can get more Wauwatosa residents to sign this petition we demand an open and transparent hearing meeting for parents to hear both sides. There is no expectation of changing timelines, or adjusting any material at this time. We just want to start a conversation.
