Hattiesburg, Miss., Schools Send Out Sex Education Surveys
March 22, 2012
Parents of children in the Hattiesburg Public School District are receiving surveys asking whether they prefer abstinence-only or abstinence-plus sex education. The district already is collecting feedback via an online survey for parents and community members, according to the Hattiesburg American. To make sure all parents are reached, the Board of Trustees requested that the survey also be mailed to the parents of students in grades six through 12. Board members will choose a policy in May; a state law gives districts until June 30 to determine which type of sex education to teach beginning in the fall.
