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.
With only a handful of days left before the Capistrano Unified School District Trustees vote on a new Sex Ed Curriculum, it’s time that all parents’ voices be heard. If you live in the Capistrano Unified School District boundaries, please join with us in telling our Trustees what we DO and DO NOT wish our children to be taught at school.
Over the last 7 days, our organization has sent to the CUSD Trustees:
A letter stating our objections.
Invitations to discuss our curriculum concerns in person.
A four-page detailed analysis explaining reasonable suggestions for improvement that would satisfy most parents who are concerned about the current content and tone of the curriculum.
TODAY it’s your turn! Please sign our PETITION to tell our Trustees and the CUSD staff that the current Sex Ed Curriculum is unacceptable in its current form (as of 2/15/19). But, we believe that with a few changes, it could be.
