State Warns Cedarburg of Lawsuit over Sex-Ed Opt-In
CEDARBURG - The Cedarburg School District could be opening itself up to future lawsuits that have to do with the school's controversial sex ed class.
The State Department of Public Instruction sent a letter to the district saying they could be sued if they continue with their new controversial opt in on sex education curriculum.
This past summer, the district sent letters home to parents about a new program in sex education in schools.
The letter asked parents if they want their child to opt in allowing their child to attend sensitive classes on intercourse that include, contraception, intercourse, homosexuality, abortion and masturbation.
But critics say the opt-in policy is not the intent of a new state law on sex education.
"To opt in on a portion was kind of backwards, so it ws kind of confusing," said Robin Paradis-Kent, a parent.
Parents have until November 1st to have their children opt in or out of the particular classes.
