Sex Education in Kindergarten
I think I was 13 before I had a clue about sex. Now, in Chicago, the schools are going to teach it starting in kindergarten!
Drew Weizholtz posted this on WOMI's website: the city’s board of education has passed a new measure, in which sex ed will begin in kindergarten. The change is expected to take effect within the next two years.
Kindergartners in the Windy City will learn about male and female anatomy, as well as reproduction. By the time they are enrolled in third or fourth grade, they will have received lessons on puberty, HIV/AIDS and what constitutes inappropriate touching.
Chicago Public Schools CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett released a statement about the decision:
It is important that we provide students of all ages with accurate and appropriate information so they can make healthy choices in regards to their social interactions, behaviors and relationships.”
Despite the new curriculum, parents will be able to remove their kids from the program if they like.
Chicago has 431,000 students, making it the nation’s third-largest school district.
And, now, a bunch of them are going to be smarter than they should be! Just sayin'!
