Maryland Board of Education: State’s right supersedes parent’s rights

From the American Family Association.

Only a positive view of homosexuality can be taught in classrooms

The Maryland State Board of Education has ruled that the right of the state supersedes the rights of parents in teaching children about homosexuality. The Board said the “right (of parents) is not absolute. It must bend to the State’s duty to educate its citizens.”

The ruling means that the teaching of homosexuality as an accepted and approved lifestyle in Maryland public schools can move forward. Very important!  Some professionals feel that the Maryland curriculum could become the model for promoting the homosexual lifestyle in public schools across the nation.  That is the reason we are asking you to send the email.

The new policy prohibits any unfavorable view of homosexuality from being presented. A video for use with eighth-graders instructs students on how to put a condom on a pen-s.

The Board has been trying to incorporate the promotion of homosexuality into their sex-education classes. A federal judge overturned a previous attempt to include the promotion of homosexuality because of the curriculum’s expressed hostility toward Christianity.

But in approving the new curriculum, the Board refused to hear arguments from those who oppose the promotion of homosexuality in the classroom.

AFA suggests that parents find out if sex education is being taught in their schools and, if so, ask to examine the curriculum being used.

Take Action

Send an e-mail to the president of the Maryland Department of Education and to the Governor of Maryland.
If you have children in public schools, ask the local superintendent if they have a sex-education program. If so, request an opportunity to review the curriculum.
Please forward this to your family and friends.
