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 most 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 law) beginning in seventh grade. But, in many schools across our state, CSE begins in kindergarten.
We post new information every week and invite you to JOIN "UP" in an effort to get informed, spread the word, and make a difference.
A Good Place to Start
If you are just learning about The California Healthy Youth Act and want to understand what this could mean for your children and their friends, watching this PowerPoint presentation by Andrea Dustin will be a good primer. We have recently added a few slides to this presentation and hope to post this new version, narrated by Andrea very soon.
