State of Arizona: Remove opt-in requirement for sexual education from Parent's Bill of Rights

    1. Petition by

      Anthony Bradford

      Casa Grande, AZ

Opt in education creates additional points of failure in our battle to prevent teenage pregnancy and the spread of sexually transmitted infections. Children with neglectful parents will be even more disadvantaged than their peers as they have a lower likelihood of ever being talked to both at home and at school. This along with the potential for procedural errors in getting opt-in information to parents, having them sign it, and then back to our schools leaves too many risks to our children's welfare. Parents should still maintain their right to be informed of any upcoming sexually related education, be privy to the content of the course, and have reasonable time to easily opt out.

To:
State of Arizona
Arizona Governor
Arizona State Senate
Arizona State House
Remove opt-in requirement for sexual education from Parent's Bill of Rights

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Without sex-ed, the spread of STDs will increase, as will the number of underage pregnancies. This is not the 1950s!

      I have kids and I have returned to live in my home state Arizona. Many kids/teens don't get the right information about the basic biology of sex. They need to know the positive steps to safe sex before they become a negative sex statistic. It worked for me in middle school and high school to have sex ed. positively re-enforced. Let's face it kids only remember half of what they are told. So having classes in their pre-teen and teen years can only be a good thing.

      Knowledge should be valued as something positive, not something withheld. If we are serious about trying to reduce the number of teen pregnancies and abortions, we need comprehensive sex education beginning at a young age.
