The Austin Independent School District (AISD) has adopted a sex-ed curriculum that is far from educational. The program instructs children as young as eight to avoid "non-inclusive" language like "mother" and "father." Fifth and sixth grade students will talk about sexual orientation, HIV and the idea of gender being a spectrum. Also, seventh and eighth graders will be shown how to use condoms. Dr. James Dobson, president and founder of the James Dobson Family Institute, is urging parents to stand against the teachings and become more involved. "Government entities like the Austin Independent School District are failing our children through this harmful indoctrination. But they are only empowered to do so because we as parents and citizens have failed to accept our familial and civic responsibilities," Dobson said.
