California Parents Confront State Lawmakers Over 'SeXXX Ed' Agenda That 'Would Make Sailors Blush'

Josh Shepherd : Apr 22, 2019

"Under this law, the state has approved six curricula to date. I've read all six, everyone with content that would make sailors blush. Kids are being exposed to sexually explicit lessons against the will of their parents. Those who pushed these laws through our Legislature, without parents knowing it, made sure it's illegal for districts to allow an opt-in model." -Rebecca Friedrichs, former public school teacher

Shocked at explicit material introduced to their children, many parents are speaking out at local school board meetings and State Capitol rallies. On March 28, they held signs urging lawmakers to "Stop SeXXX Ed" and "Educate Don't Indoctrinate."

Their leaders include Rebecca Friedrichs, a mother of two and public school teacher for nearly three decades. "Kids are [being] exposed to casual attitudes about sex and sexually explicit content," Friedrichs wrote in the Orange County Register on April 7.

"We K-12 teachers—who are mortified, by the way—are instructed to teach the kids sexual behaviors and protections that are too graphic to print. The law [adopts] medically inaccurate and age-inappropriate sex education curricula to indoctrinate children."

Public schools in California currently rank 44th out of 50 states, according to analysis by US News & World Report. Since 2011, state legislators have passed a series of increasingly progressive laws regarding sexuality education. Policies impacting K-12 students are expected to be finalized by the State Board of Education in May.

Friedrichs and her husband Charles lead For Kids and Country, a movement to restore excellence and safety in US schools. She spoke in an interview from Orange County about the new sex-ed standards, the groups behind it and why parents nationwide should be concerned. It has been lightly edited for clarity.

Life Lessons

How long have you lived in Southern California?

Rebecca Friedrichs: I was born in Los Angeles, so I've been here my entire life. I taught kindergarten through fourth grade for 28 years in Anaheim, California.

Students in that lower-income Orange County neighborhood came from all over the world. They spoke 42 different languages in our school!

My understanding of being a teacher is that I'm a public servant. I am paid by the taxpayers and parents to educate and protect little children.

I am a legally mandated reporter of child abuse. Yet teachers are now being asked to turn the other way while children are abused in our schools.

The offenders in this case are our Legislature, the union I was forced to fund and some very powerful organizations who are degrading this profession. I'm deeply troubled by it all... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
