| The Mass. Health Curriculum Frameworks are currently the recommendations of the state as to what should be taught in public schools; local districts have some discretion as to how they are implemented.
Recent legislative attempts have been made to make Health a core curriculum subject, thereby making implementation of the Frameworks mandatory in all school districts. No one is opposed to Health education per se (nutrition, exercise, safety), but concealed within the Frameworks is a radical form of sex education which includes getting abortions without parental knowledge or consent.
The Education Committee will hold public hearings next Tuesday morning, September 20th from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm in Room A-2.
1) Read about the Frameworks
2) Write your reasons for opposing
3) Come to the State House to testify
4) If you cannot attend, please send a copy of your testimony to Rep Alice Peisch, Alice.Peisch@mahouse.gov and to your own State Rep.
You probably noticed that the hearings are in that hot room so dress cooly. Every one of us needs to participate.
Thank you! Anne
