Sex Ed Survey

We need your help! We're calling on parents to ask their schools to let them review the sex ed curriculum and materials, and report to us what happened and what they found.

In North Carolina, parents have a right to consent, review, and interact with their child's public sex education. However, across our state, parents continue to be shocked by what they find their kids being taught, or confused about how they can consent, review, and interact with their kid's sex education. Some parents are even being turned away when they ask to see these materials!

Here's where you come in. We need parents to do one simple action. We need you to go your school, and request to see the sex ed curriculum AND the materials. We then need you to visit this page, and tell us what happened via the included form.

Your response here will help us evaluate what schools are "Parent Free School Zones," by helping us keep an updated interactive maps that parents can use to educate themselves.

    Q: What was the name of the curriculum?
    A: I do not know the name of the curriculum. It is provided by the school board…or County.
    I did request a copy of the curriculum, but was told that they don’t ever give out the curriculum.
    The teacher explained the reason as; they want to be able to answer any parent questions face to face, and they’re hoping to eliminate misinterpretation of the curriculum.

    Q: What happened after you requested to see the curriculum and materials?
    A: Wake Forest High School was very accommodating. I had to make an appointment with the PE/Health Teacher, who will be teaching my freshman Wake County’s ‘Reproductive Health’ series.
    I also had to prove that I was indeed a parent of a student there.
    The teacher met with me pretty quickly after I made my request to view the curriculum.
    There will be 4 days of the freshman reproductive health class (sex ed). The teacher setup the slide show that he has to use, for me to view.
    He’s not allowed to deviate from the slides, at all. There are no materials, only the slide presentation. Wake Forest High School informed me that my student could opt out, in a letter sent home for parents to sign.
    And the Health teacher told me that I could opt out my student from any one of the 4 days (which correlated to the 4 sets of slides), or, the entire series. What ever we were comfortable with.
    I was pleasantly surprised by the slide show/curriculum. It went above my expectations, based on my view of abstinence until marriage, as well as the NC state laws that you’ve published so nicely.
    I was very impressed, with the PE/Health teacher & Wake Forest High School. My standards are kind of high – coming from a private/Christian middle school to public High School.

    Q: What happened after you requested to see the curriculum and materials?
    A: Curriculum was changed without notification to parents. When I found out about the change from a sexual risk avoidance curriculum to a sexual risk reduction curriculum, (Summer 2016) I asked to see the new materials. At first, I was given the State standards, instead of actual classroom materials. When I pressed for more information, the Healthful Living Coordinator told me the materials would not be chosen until a teachers meeting in October. At that time, the Healthful Living Coordinator told me the name of the new curriculum. I asked to see the materials, and after giving time for the materials to be printed, was able to view them at the Central Office.
