LOGANDALE — Be laser-focused. Don’t bring up religion. Defend parental rights.

That was the message at a community meeting Tuesday night in Logandale, which drew a few dozen local residents to the town’s old school building to discuss strategy going into a public hearing next week on the Clark County School District’s current sex education curriculum.

Parents here have been the most vocal faction against a movement to institute comprehensive sex education in the district, though it was another issue entirely that dominated much of the discussion.

“If we lose opt-in, we lose everything,” said Deborah Earl, a board member of Power2Parent, the parent group that has been organizing these meetings since it was formed in the wake of last year’s controversy involving the school board and an ill-conceived private meeting with sex ed reformers.
