Debate - Washoe County School Board, District C Joe Rodriguez

"I feel like they are sexualizing our children."

- Melanie Sutton, candidate for Washoe County School Board District C, explains the district’s sex education curriculum goes beyond what the state requires, saying what they teach fourth and fifth graders is “terrifying” and that “they’re taking their innocence away.” Opponent Joe Rodriguez says his daughter just took the program and called it “very age appropriate,” also explaining that parents have to opt in to the sexual education program where the curriculum and lesson plan is available online prior to the class starting.
