Blake Responds to Sex Ed Bill

Blake: You saw in The Daily News article, the Kelso School District, whether the bill passes or not, nothing is going to change. They are already teaching the curriculum and it is not a problem. I think districts can choose their own curriculum and I have great confidence in the school boards around this district that they will choose appropriate, age appropriate, curriculum, that meets the needs of their community when this bill becomes law. I think that at the younger ages, kindergarten, its very innocuous teaching them how plants grow and animals grow, and teaching them to tell a responsible adult if somebody is touching them wrong. We have a problem with child molestation in this state, and in this nation, and we need to start arresting and prosecuting child molesters who are hurting our children. That’s the kind of curriculum I’m looking for.
