college student at deskMassachusetts students were subjected to what was supposed to be a survey about healthy dating but went much deeper – and personal.

The survey asked Andover students about sex practices, homosexual behavior, alcohol and drug use, and even asked about criminal behavior.

Brian Camenker of MassResistance says left-leaning administrators are trying to change children's attitudes and beliefs rather than glean information.

"They introduce ideas into kids' heads that weren't there to start with much of the time," Camenker suggests. "And they make it seem by the questions that unless they were engaged in these activities, at some level, that there's something wrong with them." 

Camenker describes the survey questions on his website, where he links to a local newspaper that quoted parents shocked at the conent.

Camenker, Brian (MassResistance)There appears to be a sanctimonious attitude among educators when it comes to parents, he tells OneNewsNow.

"That parents are stupid and not doing their jobs, and that they need to step in with these programs," says the Massachusetts activist.

Camenker and others have pushed for Massachusetts to pass legislation that gives parents more authority before their children are given graphic and controversial materials in school.

This newest survey may bolster that ongoing push, he predicts.

Camenker reports this particular survey is funded by the Obama Justice Department and is being administered in other states in addition to Massachusetts.
