But Uribe said the materials available at her center do not describe sexual acts. She conceded that she removed one popular book after some people objected to one of its testimonials: the story of a student who describes her sexual encounter with a teacher. "That's a testimony of child abuse," Uribe said.
The pamphlet "Coming Out to Your Parents" was written by the support group Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, Uribe said.
While it does encourage students to think through what their parents' reaction might be to their "coming out," the pamphlet does not encourage students to lie, she said: "It tells them that before you talk to your parents, be sure they're ready to hear this, and have means of support."
Many parents kick gay children out when they learn of their sexual preference, Uribe said.
Shultz, a Los Angeles County deputy sheriff and father to two boys, said that he does not object to teaching teen-agers about safe sex but that programs such as Project 10 "are getting far away from the task of education."
"I am not anti-homosexual," he said. "I can get along with homosexuals. I support their right to do whatever they want in the privacy of their homes."
Shultz said he has "no regrets . . . no apologies" for his point of view on Project 10: "The only difference between me and some politicians is that I'm the only one who has the guts to say this."
And although he will not be on the school board when this issue is brought forward, Shultz said he plans to voice his opinions.
"When it hits here, there will be an uproar," Shultz said. "And I will be a part of it. I'm ready to do battle."
