Opponents of this city's embattled school board lashed out Monday at its conservative Christian majority, threatening a lawsuit over its decision last week to adopt a controversial sex education program that may be in violation of state law. "I expect a legal challenge to this," said Mark Salo, director of Planned Parenthood of San Diego and Riverside counties. "It appears to me that the board acted in violation of the law."

Voters in suburban Vista have recalled two members of a Christian conservative bloc on the school board, which had gained national attention by seeking to impose a strait-laced approach to sex education. The third member of the bloc opted not to seek reelection to the Vista board, which sets policy for a middle-income, racially diverse district of 22 schools and 22,000 students.

"Be confident! Be a virgin!" "Do the right thing! Wait for the ring!" "Not on weak days! Only on wed days!" "Don't be a louse! Wait for your spouse!" "Pet your dog! Not your date!" It's Tuesday morning and the students in Bonnie Park's classroom at Acacia Middle School are chanting up a storm. But while the classroom of 12- and 13-year-olds sings the praises of abstinence, a chorus of critics of the Sex Respect sex education course is beginning to raise its voice across the country.

"Backlash to Teaching Chastity" (Column One, Feb. 15) cynically ridicules and implies ineffectiveness of a concept which has hardly been tried, namely that children should not be sexually active, and they need to be taught that they should not be sexually active. What has been tried with nearly $3 billion of taxpayers money over the past 20 years is the promotion of contraception among teens, and its remedial corollary--abortion advocacy. Your article fails to mention that this massively funded approach has resulted in the United States having among the world's highest rates of unwed teen-age pregnancy, abortion and among the world's fastest rising rates of sexually transmitted diseases.
