Groton-Dunstable Parents Voice Concerns Over “Youth Risk Behavior Survey”


GROTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Parents voiced concerns Thursday night at a public forum surrounding the Groton-Dunstable annual “Youth Risk Behavior Survey.”

Some of the parents believed the questions in the survey were too inappropriate for middle school students. The survey is a joint effort between the Groton-Dunstable school district and Emerson Hospital.

It contained 73 questions and covered a variety of topics such as sexual activity, mental health, and physical health.

A few parents told WBZ NewsRadio's Drew Moholland that particularly the material surrounding sexual activity was the most concerning. However, some parents felt relieved by the survey because it sparked an open conversation between their children on their well-being.

The forum was held a Groton-Dunstable Regional School Committee in the Media Center.
