sex education at MPPS
Various teachers within both the Mt. Pleasant High School and Mt. Pleasant Middle School are promoting Comprehensive Sexual Education (CSE) topics that do not meet Michigan legal obligations, as well as violate parental rights. We encourage all parents to speak with their children about what they are learning in this space to ensure full transparency and accountability with your rights. Below is more information as well as examples of CSE being taught in Mt. Pleasant.
Michigan law on Sexual education
Click the button below to view the Summary of Legal Obligation and Best Practices for Sex Education in Michigan Public Schools. See the section on Teacher Training on page three of the Summary where it states “In order to teach sex education, teachers must be qualified to teach health. (§380.1507) At the secondary level, this means teachers must have either the MA (health), MX (health, physical education, recreation and dance), or KH (family and consumer science) endorsement.” Controversial sexual education topics are currently being taught in the English Language Arts curriculum which appears to be in violation of this statutes.
Sex education includes: “family planning, human sexuality, and the emotional, physical, psychological, hygienic, economic, and social aspects of family planning.”
