The school board in Fairfax County, Va. passed a measure last week concerning the district’s sexual education curriculum. Upset parents tried to make a case to allow parents to opt their child out of this new curriculum but failed.
The board voted 10-2 to keep part of the Family Life Education (FLE) curriculum for K-10 students. This means students will learn about gender identity and sexual orientation in the seventh grade. Only members Patricia S. Reed and Elizabeth Schultz voted no.
