Tempe Union High School District is keeping its attorney busy

It is not news that the Tempe Union High School District's Sex Ed Committee has ignored and marginalized the majority of citizens who have spoken against comprehensive (anything goes, break up the family) sex education in their schools.

 

Next week we will see if the TUHSD Board will ignore the possibility of two lawsuits if it decides to adopt the FLASH (Planned Parenthood recommended) curriculum.  The district is currently playing with fire on two fronts:  The first is a…

Tempe High Schools are now in the marriage prep business

Is the Tempe Union High School District Sex Education Committee trying to make itself relevant?  As they see more and more families choosing alternatives to public schools, do the members feel TUHSD must be the jack-of-all-trades to attract students?

 

Traditionally, couples who are planning to marry contacted their clergy and/or family members for their preparations.  If the FLASH (Planned Parenthood) Sex Ed curriculum is chosen on May 7, 2014, the students will be prepared…

Sorry all, this technology stuff has been a challenge to learn.  But it's been a team effort--thanks to everyone who has helped and who has spoken up to defend our kids, despite the fact the Committee has turned many deaf ears.

 

Stay tuned!

Planned Parenthood is cool in TUHSD, but not Catholics

I'm not sure who picked the Tempe Union High School Sex Ed committee members and why. 

 

Angie Thornton asks why the public is concerned that Planned Parenthood may be entering TUHSD through its health classes.  Well, maybe because on January 7, 2014 the committee allowed 90 minutes for Ms. Vicki Hadd-Wisler, Planned Parenthood's educational arm, to present three curriculums.  Ms. Thornton can read the minutes if she doesn't remember the presentation she…

WARNING--Content may be acceptable curriculum in Tempe High Schools, but sit down before viewing, without your children present.

During the Tempe Union High School Sex Ed committee meeting on April 14, 2014, the committee voted to recommend FLASH (supported by Planned Parenthood) to the Board for approval.  A common theme stated by many of the members is FLASH's content is "comprehensive."  Remember the word comprehensive.  It sounds complete, thorough, factual.  But when school administrators discuss Comprehensive Sex Education, it really means anything goes. 

 

One committee member decided there just…

Planned Parenthood in the Churches AND the PTA!

Isn't it interesting that Planned Parenthood's next stop to corrupt Arizona's children is Yuma?  They have a high minority population.........Oh, yes, I remember now.  Margaret Sanger started Planned Parenthood to eliminate minorities.  Yuma wins!

 

This time Planned Parenthood isn't just targeting schools, they are taking aim at churches and PTA leaders.  Spread the wealth!

 

Think-->PTA.  What age groups do most PTAs serve?  Most active PTAs are in elementary…

Fake Charter Schools Survive Until 2015

4-10-14 Americans For Prosperity via email



Several of the "charter schools" sponsored by school districts are abusing the chartering process in order to double-dip from taxpayer funds - taking state charter funds while continuing to use local property tax money.  But these fake charters fail to operate under the independent management and market accountability of real charter schools.  The legislative budget includes $24.5 million dollars for such schools, which is less than…

Who knew a 12-year old could bring the Tempe High School/Planned Parenthood agenda full circle?

Recently, the following testimony was witnessed at a 40 Days for Life prayer vigil at the Tempe Planned Parenthood facility:

**We never Know how God will work through us.  But, you can be sure that your willingness to speak the truth brings clarity to many of our young people.  My Church was doing sign ups all weekend to sponsor a full day of prayer in front of the Tempe Planned…
