Why this list is here

The Montgomery County Public School District is implementing a new

health education policy that was proposed by a citizens advisory

committee and adopted unanimously by the school board.

Respect and tolerance

This discussion list supports the rights and liberties of individuals, and

respects the choices that people make in their lives

Controversy

The school district is doing what it can to provide accurate

information to students. Certainly, these topics are controversial,

as various religious denominations have their teachings on the

subject and as parents seek to teach the best values to their

children. We think though that the best approach is to provide

students with facts that they can use in conjunction with the

values they learn at home and in their religious training

Stand up for what’s right

We oppose those who are trying to intimidate the school board, who

insist that the curriculum reflect their specific beliefs about the

morality of particular behaviors.
