Oh Yeah One Thing

That Ninth Circuit decision last week said: "We hold there is no free-standing fundamental right of parents 'to control the upbringing of their children by introducing them to matters of and relating to sex in accordance with their personal and religious values and beliefs' ... We conclude only that the parents are possess of no constitutional right to prevent the public schools from providing information on [sex education] to their students in any forum or manner they select."

So if a school tells me that they will be teaching my child about sex, I cannot pull them out? That's clearly unlawful.

Or the school can teach my child about sex without informing the public? That, too, is clearly unlawful.

The right to prevent the schools from teaching my child about sex is necessarily implicit: I have the right as a taxpayer to know what they are teaching, and when, and I have the right to remove my child from school, at any time.

And I have the right to say Judge Steven Reinhardt is a moron.

And it's yet one more reason my children won't ever be public school students. slashdot.org
