Shrewsbury dad on sex survey: They asked you if you did what?!
By O’Ryan Johnson
Thursday, May 26, 2005 - Updated: 04:45 AM EST

Shrewsbury school officials are defending a sex survey passed out to 11- and 12-year-olds as a vital way to stay informed of health risks.

     But the father of a 12-year-old student said his daughter is too young to be asked how many oral sex partners she's had.

     ``This is not something for the schools,'' outraged dad Mark Fisher said.

     ``This is something between parents and children, not children and teachers. It seems like parents are purposely kept in the dark about this.''

     School committee President Deborah Peeples said parents are allowed to view the survey ahead of time, but are not able to take a copy home to review before their children answer it.

     ``It might be misinterpreted or misunderstood or they could use it to direct their children's responses,'' she said. ``The responses we get here are very accurate.''

     Fisher would not allow his daughter to take the survey and is asking the schools to change their policy about how it is issued. Parents now must request their child not be given the survey. Fisher wants schools to require parental permission before it is issued.

The Dad should request that the school not give his daughter any information and then find a new school. :)

Well how are they going to enforce their political correctness if they don't have ALL the information?  ;)
