Requires officials to notify them of curriculum, allow time to object

A new state law in Indiana gives parents the right to veto an offensive sex education agenda adopted by their local school district, and the legal team at Liberty Counsel has prepared a sample letter for parents to take control of that facet of their childrens’ educations.

It’s bad news for supporters the sexually permissive curriculum of the Kinsey Institute, Planned Parenthood, GLSEN, Gay Straight Alliance, SIECUS and many others.

Liberty Counsel said Tuesday it is notifying all Indiana public schools about Public Law 154, “which mandates at least two written requests for parental consent or nonconsent before any instruction in human sexuality may be given to children.”

In a letter to Jennifer McCormick, the state’s superintendent of public instruction, the legal team explained the new law became necessary because of the number of schools “seeking to skirt legislative intent regarding human sexuality instruction.”

The state already had laws regarding morals instruction, good citizenship instruction, hygiene and more.

But they weren’t comprehensive, prompting the new requirement that gives parents the right to have “full, accurate descriptions of instructional materials, and effective notice, so that they may exercise their right to nonconsent if they find the material objectionable.”

Its letter to the state department puts schools on notice, but Liberty Counsel also said it is urging “constituent parents” to give the information to their local districts.

The prepared letter allows parents to give specific notice to their schools that nothing from a long list of sources is acceptable.
