Courageous and dedicated teacher, Bill Diss brings attention to Portland Public School District's T.O.P. Program. Community member's continued efforts to expose the content, strategy and implications this Planned Parenthood directed program has on minors.
Salem-Keizer school district, which in 2011 was granted $4 million (federal tax dollars) for implementing the T.O.P. program, has been giving students free gift cards by Planned Parenthood facilitators for completing surveys and updating their personal contact information (for tracking purposes).
However, in 2012, concerned parents in the Salem-Keizer school district organized against Planned Parenthood and prepared a press release, a portion of which is below.
Save North Salem High School from Planned Parenthood, Press Release, June 28, 2012
"In 2012, parents in the Salem-Keizer school district were surprised to learn that Planned Parenthood of the Columbia-Willamette, asked North Salem High School to agree to allow Planned Parenthood to teach the six week sex education portion of the ninth grade health currirulum at the school. North Salem High agreed to let the abortion provider into their classroom to teach the class, thereby giving them access to some of North High's youngest students.
Parents also learned that students who had expressed uneasiness about taking the course taught by Planned Parenthood were pressured to stay in the class, saying they were told that they had to take the course in order to graduate. They were not informed that an alternative health course, not taught by Planned Parenthood, was available to them that would have fulfilled their curriculum requirement for graduation.
After trying unsuccessfully to convince the school to offer the required health course to North students without Planned Parenthood's involvement, the parents group decided to file an official complaint with the school district. Although the complaint process took several months and was ultimately unsuccessful, the group learned, in a letter from Salem-Keizer Superintendent Sandy Husk, that the school district had decided not to allow Planned Parenthood to teach the sex-ed portion of the curriculum to ninth graders the next fall."
It would appear that yet another victory for parental rights had trumped the intrusive heavy hand of Planned Parenthood, much like what we saw with the parents and school administration of Jackson County...but you would be wrong.
After allaying the fears of the parents and informing them that Planned Parenthood would not be teaching the sex ed class, School District Superintendent Sandy Husk, reversed the decision and informed the parents that Planned Parenthood would indeed be allowed to teach the class.
Accepting a $4 million federal bribe (oops, I mean grant) guaranteeing Planned Parenthood the ability to insinuate themselves into the Salem-Keizer schools to begin sexualizing and indoctrinating your child into the big-government sex ed programs, leaves one to wonder if the district cares about the concerns of the parents.
Committed community members continue to faithfully attend school board meetings, keeping their concerns heard and staying informed of any new or pertinent develoments.
