“But it’s the right thing to do, to provide age-appropriate sex education, science-based sex education in schools.”
Here is my beef with sex education in the schools. Public schools are having a hard enough time teaching the basics, why in the world do we want them to take on another subject? It isn’t their job! It is the parents’ job to teach them about sex. Cheryl and I talked to our kids about good touch/bad touch we don’t need another adult doing it. Kids should not be taught values that may contradict what their parents teach. Instead of opting out, how about this. If we must have it, why not requiring parents to opt in (we can do that with evolution too, but that is for another post)? Senator Obama, “comprehensive” sex education is the wrong thing to do.
