Some parents in Fremont are demanding the removal of a newly adopted health textbook that deals with sex education topics such as masturbation and bondage. While the book also covers other topics such as nutrition, stress and body image, some parents say the sex education portions are inappropriate for 14 year olds. District officials said this week that they may delay adoption of the textbook.
