The National Parents’ Union (UNPF) in Mexico delivered 112,594 signatures to the Ministry of Public Education (SEP) demanding that the distribution of school books that will be used in the 2023-2024 school year, which begins on Aug. 28, be halted because of sexualized and gender ideology content inserted without parental consultation.
The signatures were gathered through platforms such as CitizenGO and were delivered to the SEP by various social organizations headed by the UNPF.
The CitizenGO campaign demanded that the printing and distribution of the school material be stopped since the parents and the educational community were not consulted about the content, as stipulated in Article 48 of the General Education Law.
According to the National Parents’ Union, “the action of the federal government is illegal for having modified the content of the textbooks without consulting the parents as established by the regulations.”
