BROOKLYN - A group of parents is fighting the Department of Education on its plans for sex education in city public schools.

Beginning in January, sixth-graders will start taking sex ed classes, but the New York City Parents' Choice Coalition says some of the curriculum is offensive and is too focused on sex.

The group is pushing for a second program geared toward abstinence so that parents have an option. Currently, children whose parents opt them out of the program won't receive any type of sex education.
