I was catching up on some mail and read about my 6th grader New York mandate health classes that will be given after school. He will then ride home on the 3:00 pm bus which is what the High Schoolers ride back on. The school is all in one. Grade school, middle shool, high school. I dont think this set up is as bad as i first thought. You dont see cops on school grounds like I have seen on strictly high school grounds, but I still dont want him coming home on a bus with high schoolers. Also, I was wondering if “health” classes are the same as sex education classes. Do I as a parent have a right to take him out if I dont approve? What steps should a parent take? Is anyone familiar with upstate NY health education?
