Parents Say Teacher's 'Sex Survey' Went Too Far

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - A "sex survey" at the Rio Rancho high school in Albuquerque, New Mexico has sparked criticism among some parents, KOAT reports. The teacher who issued the survey has been put on paid leave.

While the survey was supposedly intended to teach kids about sex and how sexual diseases are spread, parents told the station that it went too far when the students had to list the people they've recently kissed, and to mark if there were sexually active.

"I wouldn't have agreed to any of this," parent Paul Bustamante told the station.

Rio Rancho public schools spokesperson Kim Vesely told KOB that the teacher did not follow proper protocol when they issued the survey.

"When you do a survey, if there are certain types of questions or certain topics that are addressed in that survey - prior notice has to be given to parents and apparently that didn't happen in this case and that's what's under investigation," Vesely told KOB

Vesely told ABC station KABC that parents are "offended," and that steps are being taken to investigate the unapproved class project, as well as to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Sex ed classes in New Mexico aren't the only ones coming under fire lately. Last month, the New York Department of Education recommended drastic changes to the state's public school sexual education. The proposed changes included lessons on oral sex, phone sex, bestiality, mutual masturbation and more.

After an onslaught of criticism from politicians and parents alike, the department dialed back some of the curriculum. Among the lessons removed were flash cards meant for middle schoolers, which explained sex acts such as anal and oral sex.
