A Virginia school board thrust through changes to its sex education curriculum recently despite around 90 percent of public respondents disapproving of the changes.
The Fairfax County School Board passed changes including the replacement of “biological sex” with “sex assigned at birth” and the teaching of an HIV drug with “life-threatening side effects,” reported Fox 5. School board member Elizabeth Schultz reported the vote as 10-0 with herself and one other board member, Tom Wilson, abstaining, when speaking with The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Starting in fall 2018, students enrolled in Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) will learn about the HIV prevention drug Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), which “can cause serious, life-threatening side effects” including “a buildup of lactic acid in the blood (according to the National Institutes of Health.) and problems,”
The Family Life Education Curriculum Advisory Committee (FLECAC) proposed this and the other changes considered by the board. One FLECAC member, Dan Press, has called supporters of President Donald Trump the “American Taliban.”
