Parents should know their rights
The recent lawsuit in California regarding the tolerance and diversity extracurricular activity should alarm parents locally, too.
When a conflict with home-instilled values simultaneously occurs in the classroom it is known as cognitive dissonance and a values shift may occur. Most teachers respect a parents wish to screen their children from such conflict, but often parents are unaware that such exposure from curriculum or extra-curricular activities is occurring.
Nothing gets a parent into the principals office faster than finding out that their child was just exposed to controversial sex education without their consent!
Parents would be wise not to sign parent/teacher partnership; they should also submit a parental informed consent notice (www.beverlye.com/consent_20000920.html) to their school requesting written parental consent before their child is exposed to classroom activities (e.g., sex education, drug education) that conflicts with home values.
Know your parental rights and dont be shy about putting your school curriculum under the microscope; you might be shocked at what you find!
