Welcome to United Parents
Recently in California, legislation passed that requires a new brand of sex ed: Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE). The name sounds good, but we believe that many parents (once they understand what CSE includes) will be opposed to most of the curricula currently being considered by their school districts. Parents have a right to know what their children are being taught at school; and, it is our intention to shed some light on this very important issue so parents will feel compelled to encourage their districts to create a sex ed curriculum in which they would be happy for their children to participate -- one that emphasizes the importance of abstinence, is science-based, medically accurate, and age-appropriate.
In the Capistrano Valley Unified School district, this education is being implemented (as per The California Healthy Youth Act) beginning in seventh grade. But, in many schools across our state, CSE begins in kindergarten.
We’ve created a PowerPoint that illustrates: 1) What CHYA is, 2) How it became law, 3) The intention of this law, 4) Samples of “approved” curricula and resources, and 5) What parents can do. This is a great resource/tool to use to educate friends and neighbors about CHYA. Please consider holding your own Townhall or Cottage Meeting to educate parents about what their children may be learning in school.
