GERMANTOWN, Tenn. — The school year is ending but that’s not keeping a group of Germantown parents from speaking up over their kids’ middle school family life curriculum.
Two moms have now contacted the superintendent and school board, asking them to change the curriculum.
“I think it’s negligent to completely leave boys out of a conversation about teenage pregnancy,” Jessica Schepman said. “They’re teaching abstinence only by shaming girls into abstinence, and they shouldn’t be using shame to teach anything.”
Schepman is a mother of two. Her youngest just finished seventh grade at Riverdale Middle, but something her daughter told her about her family life class recently is not sitting right.
