Let's Stop Demeaning Students in this Texas School
A group of Texas students in the Canyon Independent School District are being taught that they’ll be as worthless as chewed sticks of gum and used toothbrushes if they have sex before marriage.
In a state where the teen pregnancy rates are among the highest in the country, sex education should include facts to keep teens safe, informed, and empowered to make responsible decisions.
Instead, these students got a demeaning lecture intended to undermine their self-worth and stigmatize certain behaviors.
Livid parents are demanding that Canyon Schools leave morality to the family and focus on the facts. If enough of us speak up, we can help them get this curriculum out of the classroom.
Sign the petition to Superintendent Michael Wartes calling on him to remove the “Reality CHECK” abstinence-only program from the district.
