You need to be at Health Curriculum Frameworks hearings 9/20/11!
The Mass. Health Curriculum Frameworks are currently the recommendations of the state as to what should be taught in public schools; local districts have some discretion as to how they are implemented.
Recent legislative attempts have been made to make Health a core curriculum subject, thereby making implementation of the Frameworks mandatory in all school districts. No one is opposed to Health education per se (nutrition, exercise, safety), but concealed within the Frameworks is a radical form of sex education which includes getting abortions without parental knowledge or consent.
The Education Committee will hold public hearings next Tuesday morning, September 20th from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm in Room A-2.
