(Worthy News) - California students at a charter school will not be able to opt out of lessons on transgenderism after the school board voted this week.
The board voted unanimously to reject a “model parental rights” proposal that would have allowed parents at the Rocklin Academy School to read sensitive material before teachers use them in the classroom. The proposal would have allowed parents to then decide if their child needed to opt out of the lessons.
California law already requires parental notice and allows opt-out for lessons on sex education.
The board, however, did vote to approve a policy to allow teachers to “try” to notify parents on any lessons that have controversial material, but critics say the policy is “really weak.” [ Source: Christian Headlines (Read More...) ]
