Protecting Children from Sexually Explicit Content at School
Earlier this week, Chrissy Clark, writing for DailyWire reported, “Students in a Wisconsin school district have access to a slew of ‘sexually explicit’ books via their school-provided computers, including content that dubs traditional views of marriage as ‘ignorant.’”
The article goes on to explain that this content teaches children, as young as third grade, how to use sex apps, “mysteriously” passes the filter Securely that the district uses to weed out sexual content and violates the state’s Sex Education Policy.
In response to this and on behalf of concerned parents Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL) issued a demand letter “urging immediate action to remove sexually explicit materials available through the district’s online library that violate state law and parents’ constitutional rights.”
Parents, this is a BIG deal, but we are not without hope. We can rejoice that the truth has come to light and that there are organizations such as WILL who fight for our constitutional rights. This is also a critical time for us to be proactive by voicing what we want for our children, teaching our children to think about whatever is true, honorable, just, pure, and lovely, and cultivating a relationship with our children such that they feel safe telling us what they are encountering at school. If you encounter any similar situations in your school district, we urge you to contact Attorney Dan Lennington at WILL at firstname.lastname@example.org.
