More West Coast fun
Yay! I don't see why allowing kids to opt out isn't a solution under the judge's logic, however. Perhaps someone can enlighten me.
Nov. 04 (CWNews.com) - An American pro-family leader has expressed his shock at a federal court ruling that parents have no right to control the education of their children regarding sexuality.
Allan Carlson, the founder of the World Congress of Families, observed that a 9th Circuit Court decision, released earlier this week, essentially argues that "once parents surrender their children to the state education system, the schools can attempt to inculcate attitudes and values which families find abhorrent-- over their strenuous objections."
In the November 2 decision, written by Judge Stephen Reinhardt, the federal appeals court said: "There is no fundamental right of parents to be the exclusive provider of information regarding sexual matters to their children."
