FREMONT (KCBS)— A controversial book intended for 9th grade sex-education at Fremont Unified Schools has been shelved by the superintendent, at least for now.
Superintendent Jim Morris recommended to the school board that the textbook in question, ‘Your Health Today’, not be distributed to 9th graders until parents’ concerns could be looked at further.
The textbook talks about masturbation, sex toys and orgasms. There’s a paragraph about bondage, using handcuffs, ropes and blindfolds for sex games.
Parent Sally Hu showed KPIX 5 a passage with information on how to find a partner.
“It’s got a full page of links to online dating,” said Hu. “Why would you give that to 13 or 14-year-olds?”
Last week over 1,000 people signed an online petition to ban the book from the school’s curriculum.
