Sex Survey for 7th Graders

Reading, wRiting, aRithmetic & sex surveys

Memorial Middle School in Massachusetts is under fire for distributing a sex survey to 7th graders. Children were required to complete a graphic sex survey — without parental knowledge or consent — that included questions about sexual partners and oral sex.

The Rutherford Institute, a civil liberties organization, filed a complaint with the U.S. Dept. of Education against the Fitchburg School Committee.  “Kids were actually told to sit down and take them,” said John Whitehead, president of  The Rutherford Institute. “The parents here are very upset.”  Whitehead said girls were deeply disturbed by the subject matter of the study – including questions about suicide, drug use and sexual behavior. “One of the questions is, ‘have you ever had oral sex,’” Whitehead said. “You’re talking about kids who probably don’t even know what oral sex is.”

“It’s adult material,” he told Fox News Radio, noting that one question asked students what method they used to prevent pregnancy during their last sexual encounter. “It goes down a whole list, including birth control pills, condoms and one of the answers is ‘withdraw,’” Whitehead said. “Adults know what this is, but kids have to imagine or go online to find out what it means.”

Principal Fran Thomas told Fox News Radio that students were indeed given the survey – and admits it was graphic. But Thomas said the school has nothing to do with the content and they were required to administer the survey to fulfill a grant requirement. “I can take no responsibility for what’s on that survey,” Thomas said. “It’s not generated by the school system.”

Thomas said the survey was funded by a federal grant and administered by LUK Inc., a local social services agency — in coordination with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The organization’s leader did not return numerous calls for comment. But according to its website, LUK, Inc.’s mission is to “challenge and support youth & families to recognize and fulfill their unique and productive potential through community-based prevention, intervention and education services.”

A spokesperson for the CDC denied any involvement in the Fitchburg sex survey. The CDC said only seven states and six urban districts include sexual identity questions on their YRBS surveys – and the questions are optional.

But Principal Thomas disputed that notion. “It was not optional,” he said. “It’s part of a grant that they applied for and the district said you have to administer this survey.” Thomas said he understands the concerns expressed by the parents. But should the middle school be asking children questions about oral sex?

“That’s not a question I’d be asking,” Thomas said. “That’s not information that needs to be gathered in an indiscriminate manner – asking every single student these sorts of questions.” Thomas said it wasn’t appropriate. “I think there are many things that schools are called upon to do because they think they’ve got a captive audience,” he noted.

No parental consent required for this survey? Why is such a survey even necessary in school?  How is this any organization’s business? What ever happened to the parents being responsible for teaching their own children on sexual education? Gone are the good old days of Reading, wRiting and aRithmetic.

Heads had better roll on this. They are damn lucky I’m not a parent there.

Government education = child abuse.

Just exactly how many more examples do parents need?

If you truly love your children, then get them the hell out of the clutches of the goonionized government agent “educators.”

Otherwise STFU, because it isn’t everyones else’s government school that is forked up.

It’s yours.

This has been going on for years. In 1995 in Washington State a “secret ally” who worked in the belly of the beast, the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction in the state capital, smuggled out a copy of a Student Risk Survey stamped “Confidental- Not for Distribution” that was given to kids in the 4th, 7th and 10th grades. She gave it to a friend who called me and asked what I’d do with it if she sent it to me. Naturally, we called a parents meeting and had standing room only in the biggest banquet room at… Read more »


Massachusetts schools seem to make the news for crossing the line to major indecency. They waste the people’s taxes and offend their sensibilities. Field trips to mosques and sex surveys of children are f***king outrageous. What will it take for libtards to wake up and pull their heads out of their asses?

It’s all part of a major plan to sexualise our (your) children and slowly introduce paedophilia as a norm and a lifestyle. This is the last taboo the loony left must get rid of. They will never pull their heads outa their asses because they have gone too far. A nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse, Irish Proverb.

Why don’t the school systems do it right and just apply for search warrants? After all, they are seeking information that is private, i.e., protected by the 4th, 5th and 6th Amendments. Then there is the question of what happens to the information once it is collected. Does it rot away in a file cabinet? Is it forwarded to DHS for “evaluation” or is it just given to the local police authorities so the “at risk children” can be protected? And, considering the mischief quotient that is a stable character component in middle school children, what if they decide to… Read more »


Anon, I remember back in ancient times (circa 1972AD) when I was in high school, we had one of those “drug use” surveys. The teacher passed them out and went outside for a smoke. We all filled out the responses with the most outrageous answers possible. Heck, most of us did not even know what “drugs” were. I recall questions about drinking, narcotics, moonshine, paint/solvent sniffing, etc. Of course we replied that we use all those substances daily or more often. Our teacher came back in after his cigarette, picked up the surveys and took them to the office. I… Read more »
