Grading Ontario’s sex education reform

Parents debate how far schools should go in teaching kids the facts of life.
16 Comments

Sex education classes in schools across Ontario, Canada will now involve lessons about gender identity, sexuality and cyber bullying. Many are applauding the revised curriculum saying it’s more in tune with the times. Some parents are up in arms though, claiming the content is not age appropriate and this should be taught in the home, not the classroom. Join the conversation at 1930GMT.
