Louisiana Parents Outraged Over Middle School Sex Survey Given To Students

The survey was handed out to middle school kids at the school health center...

KPLC reports:

Some Oakdale Middle School parents are outraged after their kids were asked to take a survey at the school-based health center. Some questions, parents say, cross the line.

“Have you ever had any type of sex — vaginal, anal or oral sex? Have you ever been attracted to the same sex? Girl to girl or guy to guy? Or do you feel that you are gay, lesbian or bisexual?" Christin Willis, a concerned Oakdale Middle School parent, read from the survey.

These are the questions some parents are saying are too mature for middle school students to be answering.

Willis said her son was pulled out of class and brought to the school-based health center on campus to take a survey — one she didn’t consent to.

“I don’t even allow my son to go to the school-based health center. So, the fact that he was questioned without letting me know is the most upsetting," she said.

When Willis went to the school-based health center to ask questions, she said they explained the survey needed to be given in order to receive grant money.

“I don’t like my child being used for you to get money for a system that I don’t support. We have a health care facility, we have a doctor. If I want to discuss sexually explicit things with my children, I’ll do so in my home or at my doctor’s office — his doctor’s office," Willis said.

According to the Allen Parish School Board, the Oakdale school receives funding from the Department of Health, Office of Public Health, Adolescent School-Based Health Center. "In return for the funding, these school-based health centers have certain medical and behavioral health services that must be provided at each site." said the school board in a statement.
