OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Parents, teachers and others will be able to grade health and sex education textbooks over the next few weeks to help the district choose materials that meet the Omaha school district's new sex education content standards.
The Omaha World-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1PTxbg4 ) that 15 textbooks, websites and other materials will be up for inspection during the curriculum nights at four district high schools.
Parents and community members, especially those who fought against overhauling the curriculum, have pressed the district to be transparent as educators select age-appropriate material for the classes. The school board approved the new standards in January, after months of heated debate.
The new curriculum will be in place this coming fall.
