At its July meeting the Republican National Committee voted unanimously in support of a resolution demanding that state legislators do more to give parents more rights when it comes to sex education in public schools.
The resolution is in response to the increasingly controversial changes that are being made in sex-ed curriculum, and the lack of transparency of some of the content. Here in Virginia, the Fairfax County School Board adopted changes to their sex-ed curriculum, including replacing the factually correct term “biological sex,” to the politically correct term, “sex assigned at birth.” In Pennsylvania, students at Emmaus High School were forced to watch videos in their homeroom class every day for a week concerning homosexual and transgender lifestyles. When concerned parents asked to see the content of those videos they were denied, and are considering filing a lawsuit against the school district simply to see what their children have been shown.
“It’s time to put sex-ed decisions back where they belong — in parents’ hands,” said Cynthia Dunbar, Virginia’s National Committeewoman. “Under the RNC’s new language, the party will put its energy into “parents’ rights” provisions that would force school districts to get moms’ and dads’ written permission before moving forward with any sex-ed material.
“I’m thrilled this resolution passed,” Cynthia said after the unanimous vote. “This should not be a partisan issue. Parents everywhere deserve the right to know what their children are being taught and afforded an opportunity to consent to it.”
