HELENA (AP) — A woman has dropped her complaint against a proposed Helena School District sex education program.
Kristi Allen-Gailushas says she received no support from the community and the cost of pursuing the legal challenge on her own was too much.
The most controversial provisions of the proposed curriculum were cut this summer after numerous complaints. They included teaching first graders that people of the same gender can love each other, and fifth-graders that sexual intercourse includes "vaginal, oral, or anal penetration."
But there are still vocal opponents who say parents should have had more influence over the curriculum.
Allen-Gailushas, a Republican legislative candidate, said Sunday she will home-school her children if the curriculum is approved.
