Latest news about controversial sex education classes in Ontario
The debate is on again. I would like to hear from parents and grandparents on what you think about the proposed classes. This is a screen print of what Premier Wynne has approved and will have in our schools by the fall of 2015 unless you say something now.
Do you feel that it should be the parents responsibility to educate their children on these subjects? Are you comfortable not seeing the videos or the hand out material PRIOR to the classes start in 2015? Should we not have a choice about what our children or grandchildren are taught in school on this subject?
Sex Education in Ontario
The last Government shot it down, now it is being brought up again. Premier Kathleen Wynne announced that in the fall of 2015, she will reintroduce the graphic Sex Ed Curriculum that had outraged parents in 2010.
I am not comfortable with what is being taught. I think this is something that should not be part of our Educational system. We had health classes and I remember sex education but it was not this graphic. Is this necessary? Is the Premier going too far? Did you read this article from the link above? I remember teaching my children what they needed to know. I did not get heavily into certain subjects as it was not necessary. But I answered questions honestly and made sure they knew
It’s important to consider the fact that this curriculum was also written under the direction of an alleged child pornographer, Mr. Benjamin Levin. He was the Deputy Education Minister at the time, serving under then Education Minister Kathleen Wynne. Levin was charged by police with 7 counts of making and distributing child pornography.
You have to ask yourself why they feel this kind of education is necessary and at those ages. I also read that supporters of the curriculum argued that children are exposed to sexual information at a far earlier age — in large part due to the Internet. Is that not why we have parental controls on television and the Internet. To protect our children from seeing things they should not see at certain ages?? But the Internet is a justification for putting this information in front of children at the age of 6 and 7 years old??
How do we go about putting this to a vote, or at least have a say in what is being taught in our schools?
