Supreme Court refuses to hear appeal of 'hot and sexy' program.

  • Published 1996 in AIDS policy & law


The U.S. Supreme Court refused to consider an appeal of a lower court's decision regarding a school-based safer-sex education program. Parents and students from the Chelmsord High School in Falmouth, MA, claim that the Hot, Sexy, and Safer AIDS awareness program violated religious beliefs and was humiliating and intimidating. The Supreme Court's refusal to hear the appeal leaves intact the First U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that parents do not have a constitutional right to dictate a school curriculum.
