Family Life Education (FLE) lessons will include teachings on heterosexual, homosexual, and bisexual, and transgender identity. Lessons will include discussions about, oral and anal sex, and the different sexual lifestyles each live.
Starting in kindergarten, students will be taught about same-sex or gay marriage, and the parents will not be able to opt out, or remove their children from the lessons.
FLE lessons will be taught at public schools in Fairfax County, Virginia, and are preparing to include gender identity in its curriculum, despite objections from parents.
CBN News reported that the move has angered many parents over what they see as forcing them to expose their children to issues that are not even part of state requirements.
“Starting in kindergarten, students will be taught about same-sex or gay marriage and the parents will not be able to opt out,” Andrea Lafferty, president of the Traditional Values Coalition, told CBN News.
“Most sections in the FLECAC committee’s report have been a part of the curriculum in past years, with the difference being that many of the instructional objectives now meet the Virginia Dept. of Education’s (VDOE) general Health Standards of Learning,” the board wrote.
“As-such (they) no longer have an opt-out option. These topics include conflict resolution skills, respecting individual differences such as disabilities, ethnicities and cultures and mental health areas,” they wrote.
Lafferty said students in 8th grade will be discussing President Bill Clinton’s “activity, along with oral and anal.” Fourth graders will receive instruction about incest, she said.
“One of the big issues is in Virginia parents can opt their children out of certain parts of the Family Life Education. And so now what they’re doing is trying to move parts of it from FLE to Health, which means parents cannot opt their children out,” she said.
Many parents are outraged that the proposed lessons are not required by law but they are still being forced upon them.
