Sex education belongs in the province’s schools despite criticism from some people who oppose exposing students as early as Grade 3 to sexual content in the classroom, Premier Dalton McGuinty says.
“And I speak not just in my capacity as a premier but as a father,” McGuinty said Tuesday. “(Children) are going to get this information. Either we can provide it in a format and in a venue over which we have some control or they can just get it entirely on their own.”
And of course, in typical “this is what we’re doing and you can suck it up” fashion, his choices are simple.
Education Minister Leona Dombrowsky said parents who object to the topics taught in health can take their child out of class.
Consider it done. If and when I end up with kids, I’ll be looking for places to get them a proper grade 3 education. Probably out of Ontario, if this actually ends up happening. Let’s leave the sex education to the sexually active, shall we? Nah, I didn’t think so.
