Do you agree with the State Board of Education’s decision to require parental permission slips for children to be taught sex education?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on March 16, 2006
“I don’t have a problem with that. I think parents should be made aware of the classes their kids are taking.”
“No, because I think too many children will just slip through the cracks and not get the education they need.”
“No. If the parent doesn’t want the kid to go, they can sign something. I think the kids need to learn it there, because they do a good job of explaining it to them.”
“On face value that shouldn’t be a problem, because it should ultimately be the parent’s decision. But I would stress how important it is to have sex education in the schools.”
