A former Oxnard elementary school principal has been appointed to the five-member Ventura County Board of Education. Juanita Sanchez-Valdez, 63, was chosen to fill the post left vacant by Robert Viles, who resigned last month after pleading no contest to five counts of grand theft and tax fraud in a criminal case unrelated to his duties on the board.

That convicted sex offender and self-proclaimed homophobe Harvey Kochel could so shamelessly enter his opinion publicly into the sex education debate defies belief. But then, that Ventura County Board of Education President Wendy Larner is prepared to place her personal moral agenda ahead of saving the lives of high school students from sexually transmitted diseases is still more incredible.

Since when is teaching our children self-control, responsibility and abstinence a radical religious-right agenda? I thought this was merely common sense. Since when in a democracy are public officials responsible to uphold the viewpoints of the minority who did not elect them into office or otherwise face a recall?
