Parents must be notified of school’s intent to teach sexually explicit material

| October 3, 2022

A new Virginia law will require schools to notify their students’ parents of sexually explicit material slated for instruction. This new law, which must be adopted by January, enforces the right of the parents to determine if their children will be exposed to this kind of material or not. After reviewing the sexually explicit material, parents will be able to opt their children out of such instruction in favor of alternative instruction. This law does not censor books or instructional material.

From Fox News:

The policy mandates that public schools in Virginia, which has been a hotbed of conflict between parents and school boards, must give parents prior notice if they intend to use any material with sexually explicit content, which it defines as “any description, picture, photograph, drawing, motion picture film, digital image or similar visual representation depicting sexual bestiality, a lewd exhibition of nudity, sexual excitement, sexual conduct or sadomasochistic abuse, coprophilia, urophilia, or fetishism.”

Parents will be allowed to review the potentially objectionable material and be given the opportunity for their child to be given an alternative in a process that schools will be required to create before the start of each school year.

Schools will also be mandated to list the materials on their websites and give parents at least 30 days’ notice before such material is slated to be taught.

The policies apply to “Any content used by one or more students for an educational purpose, regardless of (a) its format, whether printed, representational, audiovisual, electronic, or digital (such as materials, social media content, and software applications accessible through the internet), or (b) the time, place and manner in which the content is used.”

“Library materials are considered instructional materials when used (i) for completion of an assignment, or (ii) as part of an academic or extracurricular educational program. This includes any division, school, and/or classroom purchased or created assessments. However, the phrases ‘instructional material’ and ‘instructional materials’ do not include standardized national or state assessments, such ACT, SAT, NAEP, and AP or SOL exam,” the policies continue.

The new law comes weeks after a judge in Virginia Beach dismissed a lawsuit on jurisdictional grounds that had sought to deem two controversial books as obscene and to restrict their distribution to minors in libraries and bookstores.

I can’t believe there has been a compromise on this. Such material should not be taught…period.

And I can see all kinds of games being played by the “educators”.

“Parents, just want to let you know we’ll be teaching this material tomorrow morning.” Or “Whoops! We are so sorry we “forgot” to inform you!”

Only by TPTB.
Parents, on the other hand………
I can see starting with keying cars, flat tires, and broken windows (and escalating from there) until the “educators” (perverts and pimps) get the message.

Somebody is going to be getting the FBI sicced on them by the school board for their terrorist activities.

All implied activities mentioned above should be done covertly, not overtly. Add a little psychological terror if one doesn’t know for sure who is attacking. (plus, saves the attacker’s ass from TPTB/FiBbIeS)

“depicting sexual bestiality, a lewd exhibition of nudity, sexual excitement, sexual conduct or sadomasochistic abuse, coprophilia, urophilia, or fetishism.” When is any of that shit allowable in school under any circumstances?

When I was much younger, they would send home a waiver that had to be signed by parents informing parents of teachers teaching sex education.

But since when have liberal moonbats hell-bent on forcing their agenda down kids’ throats ever let the Law or the Constitution get in their way?

Constitution? Leftists don’t need no stinkin’ “racist” Constitution!
