Emails from a Texas public-school district revealed that liberal school leaders evaded a state law in order to obtain explicit sex-ed lessons.

Texas state law forbids public schools from working with abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood to present explicit sex-ed curriculum, but Austin Independent School District cooperated with Canadian-based Alberta Health Services – and yet claimed it did no such thing.

According to Texas Values, the conservative group presented an open records request after Austin schools told the media that Alberta’s sex-ed lessons were obtained online for free, hence there were no agreement with the abortion provider nor any “legal concerns” about violating the state law.

The school district’s director of academics, Kathy Ryan, made that claim to the Austin Statesman newspaper late last year during heated arguments over implementing the controversial sex-ed lessons.

Yet emails obtained by Texas Values revealed that a school librarian contacted Alberta last October in order to work out an agreement to use the copyrighted materials in classrooms.

“Any first-year law student could tell you that a formal agreement is a contract,” remarks Texas Values spokesperson Mary Elizabeth Castle.
