Wednesday night’s packed school board meeting in Fremont, Calif. was a lot more exciting than usual as parents showed up in droves to express their displeasure over a ninth-grade health textbook that introduces 13- and 14-year-old students to dildos, Internet dating advice, porn and, of course, bondage.
A large number of parents officially showed up to present around 3,800 petition signatures objecting to the adoption of the 392-page college-level textbook entitled “Your Health Today” for a semester-long ninth-grade course required for graduation.
During the meeting, even more embarrassing information about the book came out, according to a press release from the Pacific Justice Institute, a conservative legal defense organization.
Turns out, the content of the textbook is so raunchy that it requires officials in the Bay Area district to disable school Internet porn filters so that electronic versions of the book won’t be automatically blocked.
At the meeting, Fremont school district superintendent James Morris bizarrely suggested that perhaps the taxpayer-funded school district should create an “honors” sex education class. The special students chosen for that advanced course could then continue to use the textbook — and learn about sex toys, bondage, etc.
