A story that appeared in today’s San Francisco Chronicle confirms that district officials are aware of the textbook’s graphic discussion of sexual acts, sex toys, and even bondage. Warning: the linked news story is not appropriate for children. It should be noted that the Chronicle story significantly understates the number of parents who have signed petitions opposing the book. Those parents number well over 1,000.
Brad Dacus, president of Pacific Justice Institute, commented, “We are standing with the parents of Fremont because this textbook is clearly inconsistent with California law. No school board, regardless of their ideology, is above the law. We are hopeful that the overwhelming opposition by parents from across the political spectrum will cause the board to reverse its ill-conceived position.”
