Update on sex education curriculum

The Washington Post is reporting that Montgomery School Superintendent Jerry D. Weast said he was suspending the proposed curriculum. Two groups that were opposed to the curriculum, Citizens for a Responsible Curriculum and Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays, applauded the decision. A parent in the district had this to say:

All we hear is how liberal Montgomery County is. There's actually quite a few conservatives in the county," said Laura Quigley, who has children at middle and high schools in Gaithersburg. "And all along, we've thought this was more than a liberal-conservative issue. It's a parent issue."


I agree with Ms. Quigley. Sex education is a parent issue.

"It's a parent issue."
It sure is, not the government, the parent issue.

Hi Felis,

It just seems like the schools are trying to take over too many parental responsibilities in order to ensure political correctness.
