Reflections on Tempe Union High School Board Sex Ed Study Session on February 19, 2014

Reflections on Tempe Union High School Board Sex Ed Study Session on February 19, 2014:


It is a sad situation in TUHSD.  If the members of the school board spend as much time researching the proposed curriculum as they do thanking and praising the Sex Ed committee, it will be to the students' advantage.
