Utah's Senate just passed a bill that would require Utah educators to refrain from the discussion of contraceptives in sex ed.
Because that'll help. Why are the actively trying to cause problems for their children?
Seriously, how backwards is this? According to the bill:
'After the new bill goes into effect, the teaching of sex education in Utah classrooms has to be about not having sex before marriage and fidelity within marriage. Teachers cannot advocate the use of contraceptives anymore and they cannot talk about homosexuality, even if asked by a student.'
Do you want to know the justification?
Here it is:
“My problem is that we’re having essentially complete strangers teaching our children, who frankly we don’t know who they are and exactly what they’re teaching, with the most sensitive issues that do belong in the home.”
ARE YOU KIDDING US?? How do you not know what your teachers are teaching?? Are there no lesson plans? Do you not properly check out your teachers before hiring them?
We will lose all faith in Utah's politics if the Governor doesn't veto this bill that's CLEARLY out of touch with reality.
How is something like this even possible in 2012? It makes no sense.
Educating our kids is the right an only option, but giving a FULL education, not an arrested one.
