"There is no fundamental right of parents to be the exclusive provider of information regarding sexual matters to their children...Parents have no due process or privacy right to override the determinations of public schools as to the information to which their children will be exposed while enrolled as students."
Apparently parents were informed of a 'baseline exposure to early trauma' questionnaire given by the Palmdale School District to FIRST, THIRD and FIFTH grade students. When the parents discovered what was ON the questionnaire they were very upset! Here's an example of what the school district deemed appropriate to ask kids as young as 6 years old. The children were to rate the following activities:
8. Touching my private parts too much
17. Thinking about having sex
22. Thinking about touching other people’s private parts
23. Thinking about sex when I don’t want to
26. Washing myself because I feel dirty on the inside
34. Not trusting people because they might want sex
40. Getting scared or upset when I think about sex
44. Having sex feelings in my body
47. Can’t stop thinking about sex
54. Getting upset when people talk about sex
Well - the parents sued the school district and lost. You see the quote above - given by the vaunted 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
It's time to be alarmed - be very alarmed!
Grizzly Mama TRIED to tell ya - but ya didn't want to listen. I TRIED to tell you that the all knowing state is usurping your rights as a parent. Time to get off your ass. The bureaucratic daycare that you've put your children into (with the all important 'socialization' that goes on there) has extended it's ugly tentacles into your rights as a parent. Your precious few hours of solitude is coming at an extra high price for all of us.

Just saw this reported on FoxNews. I caught the headline and then went zooming off in another direction. (That's the life of a home educator!!) I'm looking for reports on this elsewhere.
It's all over the place now. EVERYONE seems to be talking about it.
