So for example there may be parents that don't want their child to be taught about contraception, sex education, other religions, global warming, certain historical events or evolution because it goes against their beliefs
and should they be able to remove their child from those classes?

No, children should be exposed to as many different view points of a multitude of events (things like sex ed/ contraception is basic health care information and extremely important, less people know the more STI's and possibly higher levels of HIV/AIDS). Parents should not have the right to limit their children's capacity to form their own opinions and any parent that does this to their child is oppressing them, a parent's belief system should be an option for the child. It is no ones job to teach people what to think but it is the parent and the school's/ states obligation to educate children enough to be able to form their own views.1
