Despite appeals from pro-family organizations, last week the California Department of Education approved controversial changes to the state’s health and sex education framework.
The department ignored large protests mounted by concerned parents and taxpayers, unanimously approving guidelines for teaching courses to elementary school grades about sexual orientation, sex-trafficking, and LGBTQ doctrine. The meeting in Sacramento, the state capital, focused on revisions to the state’s sexually explicit Health Education Framework, which makes recommendations for the state’s K–12 public school health curriculum for the next ten years.
Before the meeting, about 200 people rallied at Capitol Park to denounce the revisions of the framework. Stephanie Yates of Informed Parents of California asked, “How are they helping kids find themselves when they are confusing them about who they are, or they could possibly be nothing at all.” Her organization was founded in 2018 and now has more than 20,000 members on Facebook. Filling the lobby at the building where the Board was meeting, members of the public acclaimed Yates while watching her on a live feed as she said the new revisions include pornography and political manuvering. “This stuff should be taught at home,” she said, according to the AP.
