Support Comprehensive Inclusive Sex Education Revisions in Parkway School District

This past three years students in Parkway School District have been pushing for a more inclusive sex eduction curriculum, one that works to meet the national standards and doesn't rely on abstinence only when talking about sex. The students campaign was going great until this week non students wrote to the school board asking them to keep the practices the way they are. We need the school board to change the policies around sex education and make it inclusive. Make it include other things than abstinence and make it follow the national sex education standards.

Why is this important?

Because Students health, safety and even lives could be in danger without this type of education. Bad information leads to poor ability to make decisions and leaving students without tools needed to handle what happens when those decisions are made. We need all the information when it comes to sexual health, not just some of it.

How it will be delivered

Next Wednesday night, September 9th, the school board of Parkway District will meet and hear testimony from students and members of the district only. We plan to give this petition to them as a coalition of GSAs in the Parkway District and testify why we believe comprehensive Sex Ed is important and saves lives.

Reasons for signing

  • LGBT+ youth are deprived of such a critical necessity, sexual education, at such a young age of their life. Because of the lack of adequate sex-ed pertaining to their own preference, they are left to discover things on their own. Resulting in really poor decisions and youth positioning themselves in dangerous situations- repeatedly. Please sign this petition and my state's for JUSTICE. https://unite.gsanetwork.org/petitions/lgbtq-sex-education
  • As a former high school student that received sub-par sex education I can attest to the fact that you are only crippling students' well-being and leaving them open to abuse and assault if you do not give them the tools and education they need.
  • I want my daughter to be empowered with the facts so she can make her own decisions and my son to learn what it means to respect a girl's choice. And I want all kids to understand and respect LGBT. The only way to gain tolerance is to spread knowledge.

I presented at the board of education but apparently they haven't caught on that we NEED these revisions. Keep sharing and signing, friends!
