Sex and coffee

As we reported today, the Fremont school board will consider adopting a new sex ed curriculum for junior high students tonight.

Members of the district’s health and sex ed advisory committee are divided over the curricula, and apparently some don’t approve of either choices. The ”FLASH” curriculum was developed by a county health office in Washington. The other curriculum, “Teen Talk,” was developed by the Teen Pregnancy Coalition of San Mateo County.

Here are links so you can review the choices yourself:


Teen Talk:

There’s also been talk that abstinence-only advocates have been pressuring school board members to scrap sex ed from junior high schools altogether. Those in the know say tonight’s discussion could be a lengthy one. So if you plan to attend or watch the meeting on TV, do yourself a favor and brew a pot of coffee.
