The Fairfax County School Board is poised to make some radical changes to their sex ed curriculum.
Already, each public school student must suffer through 80 hours of sex ed. That’s not a typo: 8-0.
They call it “Family Life Education” but everybody knows that’s a joke. You won’t find lessons on building happy marriages and healthy families here. No, instead you’ll find hour after hour of instruction on your evolving “sexual identity,” on the proper handling of contraceptive drugs and devices, and on how to give consent for sex.
(Here is a balanced review of every current sex ed lesson.)
But even these lessons were too repressive for the kids, in the eyes of this longtime Democrat-controlled School Board.
Last week at the Fairfax County School Board meeting, the committee of hand-picked sex ed advisors pitched an overhaul of the curriculum which will take things from bad to worse.
A summary of the changes drafted by the Family Life Education Curriculum Advisory Committee, or FLECAC, can be found here (but don’t ever trust the School Board’s summaries; click on the Board Docs link for the full report, and skip to the final three pages to read the dissenting opinion). The vast majority of the 24 voting members – including a 9th grade student in braces – voted enthusiastically for all changes. Only three members voted against the changes.
Here is what the Fairfax County officials want to do:
The School Board is accepting public comments until June 8 on the proposed changes.
They will vote on the changes at a school board meeting on June 14.
Fairfax kids deserve better. And the Fairfax School Board members need to find another line of work.
