The San Diego Unified School District approved a sex education program last year that parents spoke out against last week, trying to prevent it from continuing in the 2017-18 school year. A petition on argues that the curriculum introduces too much too soon, and "far exceeds the requirements of the California Healthy Youth Act."

The school district heard the parents out, but voted to make no significant changes to the program.

Mike Slater highlighted some of the subjects being covered by this program on this Saturday's "Mike Slater Show." One segment on gender expression reminded him of a college anecdote in which a friend was stunned by a class on the same topic.

Mike pointed out that the gender expression curriculum was shocking on in universities just a decade ago, "and [is] now being taught to sixth graders as though it's gospel."
