A Washington faculty district despatched flyers home with eighth grade students that contained info on abortions without parental consent and outlining age of consent legal guidelines for students as younger as 11 years outdated.

Hogan mentioned the “unapproved materials” had been faraway from the binder and that the college has spoken to lecturers and directors about what curriculum was accepted for distribution.
