The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is finishing model policies for school districts to give parents notice about lessons featuring “sexually explicit content,” according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

VDOE policy requires schools to post all “sexually explicit content,” including all materials used for the lessons and curriculum, on the school’s website and also requires parents to be alerted at least 30 days before the lessons take place.

The policy says it is designed to help parents make decisions for their children “in accordance with their customs, faith and values.”

“Additionally, local school boards should develop policies that provide parents the opportunity to change their decision by providing notice to the school,” it says.

Republican Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin signed an April bill mandating the adoption of the model policies by January. The public comment period on the model policies concluded on Aug. 3, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch

The American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia argued that the model policy will “lead to classroom censorship,” according to an Aug. 2 comment sent to VDOE Superintendent Jillian Balow.

“As drafted, the proposed model policies codify and force all Virginia school districts to adopt this anti-free speech practice and will only exacerbate an alarming trend toward classroom censorship, all while denying students the opportunity to be inspired by stories of people from all walks of life trying to live authentically in school curriculum, ” the letter says.

Teachers and parents sued the Harrisonburg City Public School Board in Harrisonburg, Virginia, in June over the “Gender Transition Action Plan” which hides a student’s gender identity from parents. Parents voiced concerns after Marshall Elementary in Manassas, Virginia, featured a children’s book about a gay relationship during a library story time in June.

The VDOE and the ACLU of Virginia did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

I was fat-shamed by a teacher at school and I’ve lost jobs for being ‘too sexy’ because of my curves – it’s just my body

A WOMAN has said that she’s been body-shamed for years, with teachers calling her fat when she was a student.

Nina Osegueda, previously went viral online after posting a TikTok revealing that she had been reprimanded at two different jobs as her figure left her looking “too sexy” while wearing regular office wear.

In the clip she posted Nina says: “I learned that no matter how appropriately I’m dressed, my body is so distracting that I will never be dressed appropriately enough for the workplace.”

She’s now spoken to the Daily Star, revealing that this hasn’t been the only time in her life that she’s been body shamed, and that she was even fat-shamed by her teachers at school.

She says: "I was on the swim team for most of my childhood and as soon as I hit my teen years, I was harassed by my teammates and my coaches.

"One coach, an adult woman, told me to 'shake the fat off those thighs' as a means of getting me to move faster.

"I was also in a theatre program in my high school, and one of my teachers told me I should try and audition for the 'funny fat girl' roles and stick to comedy because I didn't have the right "look" for a lead actress.

"I knew I wanted to be a performer of some kind, so the abuse I took in high school made me stall a little and I wound up going to college for animation instead of music or theatre. Luckily, I grew out of that and started singing again once I graduated."

And Nina, isn’t alone in this constant body-shaming, others have commented on her videos sharing their own experiences.

“My work bestie had this problem too. her body was rocking but was always sent to HR over complaints, no matter how modestly she was dressed, just sad,” reads one comment.

Another wrote: “I got pulled in by HR as a curvy size 10 in black "leggings" that were actually jeans, pointed at the other supervisor 10 ft away wearing THE SAME JEANS!”

“Me too! (Double D's here) My first office job, every blouse was deemed inappropriate by my older, female boss” added a third.”

One viewer shared how this happened to them while in school too: “As a CHILD in middle school I got dressed coded for wearing the same things that other girls were.

“A teacher once walked up to me and buttoned my cardigan all the way up to under my chin (was not revealing before that) without consent to touch me or saying anything, just walked up and did it.”
