You have no doubt herd of the highly controversial sex education curriculum being proposed by the Helena, Montana school board.
Matt Gouras with the Associated Press writes "The proposed 62-page document covers a broad health and nutrition education program and took two years to draft. But it is the small portion dealing with sexual education that has drawn the ire of many in the community who feel it is being pushed forward despite its obvious controversial nature.
Parents appeared most worried about pieces of the plan that teaches first-graders about same-gender relationships, fifth-graders that sexual intercourse includes various places on the body where sex takes place, and high school students about erotic art. The curriculum would also teach kindergartners anatomical terms such as penis, vagina, breast, nipples, testicles, scrotum and uterus.
Mikal Wilkerson, who has five children in the school system and a husband who sits on the school board said "They even teach about anxiety about sexual performance in high school." Supporters say the proposed health education curriculum contains honest, science-based information on wellness and allows students to make better decisions."
But WHO should be teaching students, or better stated, who should be teaching OUR CHILDREN about making better decisions about sex? Would you want your children taught these things in school?
