TWENTY-EIGHT NEBRASKA STATE SENATORS HAVE SENT AN OPEN LETTER TO NEBRASKA EDUCATION COMMISSIONER MATT BLOMSTEDT ASKING HIM AND THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION TO REMOVE “IDEOLOGICALLY MOTIVATED CONTENT” FROM THE NEWLY PROPOSED HEALTH STANDARDS.

THE LETTER STATES THAT THE SENATORS ARE DEEPLY DISTURBED ABOUT MATERIAL RELATED TO SEX EDUCATION, MARRIAGE AND FAMILY AND GENDER,

THE SENATORS, INCLUDING JONI ALBRECHT OF THURSTON, SPECIFICALLY NOTE THE “HUMAN GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT” PORTION OF THE STANDARDS, WHICH VIOLATES “THE RIGHT OF PARENTS AS THE FIRST EDUCATORS OF THEIR CHILD.”

THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION IS HOLDING A PUBLIC MEETING ON FRIDAY.

THE PROPOSED HEALTH STANDARDS HAVE DRAWN SIGNIFICANT OPPOSITION FROM NEBRASKANS ACROSS THE STATE.

THE LAWMAKERS HAVE PREVIOUSLY REJECTED ATTEMPTS TO MANDATE STATEWIDE COMPREHENSIVE SEX EDUCATION AND CALLS THE PROPOSED HEALTH EDUCATION STANDARDS A “BACKDOOR ATTEMPT TO PROPOSE WHAT THE PEOPLE OF THIS STATE HAVE REJECTED.”

THE SENATORS ASK THAT ALL SEX EDUCATION BE REMOVED FROM THE PROPOSED STANDARDS.
