“The Battle for Student Healthy Health Standards Has Begun”

By Donna Garner

6.17.19

THIS ARTICLE IS A “KEEPER” BECAUSE IT CONTAINS VALUABLE RESOURCES FOR ALL STATES TO USE.

We already know that the battleground is being prepared by Planned Parenthood and Texas Freedom Network (TFN) to sweep our Texas school children over into the abortion and the LGBTQ camp.

On 5.7.19., TFN announced to its constituents that it would be “leading the fight” to do away with the abstinence-only policies in Texas’ Health Education TEKS (curriculum standards) and would seek to move students into the LGBTQ agenda. This is done through shifting students’ thinking FROM tolerance TO acceptance TO promotion and then TO militant aggression of the LGBTQ dogma as we are seeing in our culture right now. 

ORGANIZATIONS SET ON CORRUPTING CHILDREN

TFN was founded by Cecile Richards who became the head of Planned Parenthood International. The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) is the largest LGBTQ organization in the United States and is tied permanently to Planned Parenthood (PP) and TFN.

We who believe in promoting healthy lifestyles among our Texas school students know PP/TFN/HRC’s game plan. We absolutely will not stand by quietly and allow PP/TFN/HRC to corrupt our children and lead them into lives of physical and emotional misery and many times early death.

THE REVIEW AND ADOPTION OF 2019 HEALTH TEKS 

Texas teachers are already being surveyed to get their input into the new 2019 Health Education TEKS (Texas’ curriculum standards).  Health Ed TEKS Work Groups are presently being chosen by the elected members of the Texas State Board of Education.

The various Health Ed TEKS Work Groups will be made up of teachers and also of qualified members of the public.

QUALIFICATIONS FOR HEALTH ED TEKS WORK GROUP

To be on the Health Ed TEKS Work Group, the SBOE members are particularly seeking out people who have experience in the healthcare professions (e.g., doctors, nurses, therapists); those who have a background as school nurses, counselors; and/or those with experience in community health work.

Members of the Health Ed TEKS Work Groups have been assured that they will have a maximum of two days of meetings in Austin on two occasions which could be over one or two different months.  One or two teleconferencing calls may also be utilized. Expenses are provided for hotel, travel, and meals.

DETAILS ABOUT THE HEALTH ED WORK GROUPS

Details and applications to be on the Health Ed Work Groups (and/or Physical Education Work Groups) can be found at this link on the Texas Education Agency website:

https://tea.texas.gov/Academics/Curriculum_Standards/TEKS_Texas_Essential_Knowledge_and_Skills_(TEKS)_Review/Health_Education_TEKS_Review

[This same type of review is being held concurrently to adopt new 2019 Physical Education TEKS also, and applicants will need to indicate clearly their choice(s) on their applications.]

COMM. MORATH’S HEALTH ED TEKS STUDY RECOMMENDATIONS

The Houston Chronicle in its 6.13.19 recent article intimated that Texas Education Commissioner Mike Morath is trying to force radical changes into the new 2019 Health TEKS (e.g., contraceptives). As usual, the “fake news” is just that — fake. 

To see what Tex. Comm. Morath is actually recommending, please go to the following link where he has prepared a study of current health education research and state standards (even those laws passed in the 2019 Legislative Session), including national best practices, that would be used as a guide to begin the SBOE’s processes to review and consider revising the Health Education TEKS.  

Comm. Morath’s Health Education TEKS Study Recommendations are found at: file:///C:/Users/DGarner/Downloads/Commissioner%20Recommendations%20for%20Health%20TEKS.pdf

I particularly read over the sections pertaining to Mental Health and Wellness (p. 4), Injury and Violence Prevention and Safety (p.5), Reproduction and Sexual Health (p.6).  P. 9 has an easy-to-understand chart of grade-level recommendations.  In Appendix A beginning on p. 11, I particularly looked at Bullying/Harassment (p. 11), Local School Advisory Council (p. 12), Human Sexuality Instruction (p. 13), Sexual Harassment (p. 14), Bullying Prevention Policies (p. 14), Coordinated School Health Programs (p. 17), Mental Health of Public School Students (p. 19), Positive Character Traits (p. 23), and Mental Health Promotion (p. 24).

ACTION STEP:  WHAT WE IN THE PUBLIC CAN DO

First, please consider yourself as a possible Work Group member. If you do not fit the requirements, then please think about other people you know who might be qualified and who promote abstinence and healthy lifestyles. Please give them this information and encourage them to go through the application process as explained on the TEA’s website:

MY CONTRIBUTION TO THE CAUSE

Because of my own experiences as a researcher/consultant/writer, working under practicing, medical professionals in the field of sexual health, I am providing the following resources which I believe to be medically and psychologically credible.

These resources can and should be utilized by the members of those involved in the entire process of the new 2019 Health TEKS from the Work Groups all the way through the adoption to new Health Education instructional materials.  

People from all over the United States should make use of these credible resources to use in their own school districts.
